They pretty much only added Bashir in that episode to remind TNG fans that DS9 exists.
Not quite. The episode was planned even before DS9 premiered. It was partly to promote DS9, sure, but Piller needn't have worried. DS9 was getting ratings comparable to TNG at this point, and "Emissary" was a bigger ratings success than any episode of TNG.
