I was just wondering if either of Bashir's parents have ever appeared again? Is Memory Beta incomplete on this front. Got me thinking of other on-screen relatives from DS9. Some of these have felt well-developed in books - the Siskos' family, who have been well-treated (and expanded upon) on page, Worf's (yay, although it would be rewarding to see more of Lugok's plans for Kurn & Toq alluded to at the end of A Burning House- so sad what happened to that series!). Others fortunately ignores, like Ezri's (ugh!). But I guess I wonder, do people feel that family plays a role in trek tv =characters' lifes in the lit?
