Re: Was altering Kurn's memory "Kahlessian"?
Forgetting for a moment about the Klingon values involved, I'm more concerned about the fact that Bashir went along with it. From a human, Federation, and Starfleet point of view, how could he possibly justify violating someone's mind in that fashion? Wouldn't that be at odds with his Hippocratic Oath?
I suppose he could say it was better than the alternative of letting Worf kill Kurn, but that would be a very weak argument.
