Re: Rewatching early DS9 knowing that Bashir is genetically enhanced

In "Dax" Bashir actually gets beaten up by one of Dax's kidnappers, a female who appears younger than he.
I don't really see how this is relevant to Bashir's genetic enhacenments. I remember it being explicitly stated that his hand-eye coordination was enhanced, but nothing that comes to mind ever suggested he was supposed to be any stronger than he would have been without the enhancement. He wasn't designed to be a new Khan, after all. I see no reason why he should be expected to be an extraordinary fighter - or even a particularly good one, if he hasn't bothered much with learning technique.
