Re: Dr. Bashir allowed to practice medicine

It's not that Bashir did anything wrong. By letting him stay, the Federation is telling everyone it's okay to augment you kid to achieve at anything in life, better than everyone, so long as you go to jail. What parent wouldn't augment their underdeveloped child at their own expense. Bashir would have a comfortable life outside of Starfleet, he'd probably even get scooped up by a think tank or some other high-end organization, but demoting him to a petty officer would help to deter similar future incidents.

^Toleration is not acceptance: I doubt he was ever again nominated for the Carrington Award.

That's true, but that's not the way a free society behaves.

Re: Dr. Bashir allowed to practice medicine

If an augmented Human cannot enter Starfleet, it would only then make sense that the physical done to join Starfleet or enter Starfleet Academy would look for augments.

As far as crimes go, no he's not responsible for becoming an augment, however he did lie on his Starfleet application, and somehow found a way to bypass his physical perhaps by tampering with the bio-bed and/or tricorder used to scan for things that would disqualify a person for Starfleet service. So he did things on his own, hid evidence of his augmentation, perhaps tampering with Starfleet equipment, and once of legal age, continued a conspiracy to hide his augmentation. I would think those things are enough for a court marshal and discharged from Starfleet.

I'm pretty sure other non Federation worlds would have been happy to make him a doctor and have him in their service.

Re: Dr. Bashir allowed to practice medicine

ahh, the good old retcon where genetic manipulation is outlawed by the federation
yet in TNG there was a whole outpost doing genetic manipulation to the point of making fully telepathic humans with super immune systems that got regular supply runs from federation starships

I always figured they let him stay in starfleet due to not being the one that got himself modified plus the fact that he wasn't openly using his abilities and was doing good work
