Discussion in 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' started by LeadHead, Apr 17, 2014.
Bashir: Yes, I understand.
SLOAN: Maybe it's a blessing in disguise. The last time you tried to attend a medical conference you were taken prisoner by the Dominion.
BASHIR: An experience I wouldn't care to repeat.
SLOAN: I'm sure you wouldn't. Five weeks in a Dominion prison camp? I can't imagine what that must have been like.
BASHIR: Not pleasant.
Sloan: I read your report. It made me ask myself how I would have held up under those conditions. I guess you really never know until you go through it.
Bashir: I'm sure you would have been able to cope. We do what we have to to survive
SLOAN: I was just reading over some of your case reports. Fascinating stuff. The work you did with those genetically enhanced patients. Very impressive.
BASHIR: Thank you.
Sloan: Before you started working with them, Starfleet Medical described them as alienated, uncommunicative and hostile. You were the first doctor who managed to establish a dialogue with them.
BASHIR: Well, actually I think the fact that I'm genetically enhanced myself made them a little more open to accepting me.
Sloan: You spoke their language.
SLOAN: I envy your profession. You have a positive impact on people's lives. You know, I considered becoming a doctor myself.
Bashir: You have a good bedside manner. Actually, when I came in here, I half suspected that I would be interrogated under a very bright light.
SLOAN: Not this time. Well, I see no need to trouble you any longer. Thank you for your cooperation.
Bashir: My pleasure.
SLOAN: Lieutenant Chandler will take you back to your quarters now. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to stay there until I've finished with the rest of the interviews.
Sloan: Not this time. Well, I see no need to trouble you any longer. Thank you for your cooperation.
Bashir: Well in that case, maybe you could send someone to take a look at my replicator. It's not working.
