It made more sense for Data to appear with Dax, especially season 1 Dax who hadn't been given any characterization yet. She was basically DS9's Spock/Data at the time.

Bashir in TNG acted too much like a giddy idiot. Granted, early Bashir was a giddy idiot.
Yes, it might have made more sense, but as stated on the Memory Alpha page on this episode:

Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax) was to appear in this episode, but she was busy filming the Deep Space Nine episode "Move Along Home". Siddig El Fadil (Julian Bashir) appeared instead. Farrell commented "I cried. I thought I should have fallen off the rock so I could have gone over there instead of Sid disappearing, because when we were filming "Move Along Home" his character disappeared, and I was acting throughout the rest of it with Nana and Avery, and we got caught up together". (Captains' Logs Supplemental - The Unauthorized Guide to the New Trek Voyages, p 48)
