Doctor Julian Bashir is the chief medical officer onboard Deep Space 9. Off screen, he would go on to romance Nana Vistor who played Col. Kira Nerys and together they would have a child.

Julian is a charmer, he will try to charm any attractive woman he meets. Julian is more unsuccessful that successful. One of the earlier episode's love interests is Melora, an Elaysian female who is unable to walk unaided. He sets out to find a solution to help her walk and get her heart but he fails to do either as she ends up preferring the status quo.

Julian had wanted to become a tennis player but he was disuaded by his parent, there was no career in it. He was persuaded to become a doctor, a profession he excelled in.

Although he didn't get on well with Chief Miles O'Brien at the start of the series, they become great friend, playing tennis or raquetball frequently. In addition to Miles, Julian has a close friendship with Elim Garak, the Cardassian tailor. Julian is awe of Elim whom he believes is a member of the Obsidian Order and who he is later proved right.

When Julian was born, he wasn't progressing as fast as he should, his parents did something that they shouldn't have done. Julian's parents had their son genetically improved via DNA Resequencing. D.N.A. Resequencing is banned because of the Eugenics War. The Eugenics War saw the rise of Khan Noonien Singh, the one time adversary of James Kirk. The secret came out when Julian's parents came to visit him onboard the station and they were tricked into revealing the truth. Julian's dad handed himself into Captain Benjamin Sisko and was subsequently tried and sentenced to two years imprisonment. Doctor Bashir I Presume

Dr Julian Bashir's Best, Worst and Memorable Episodes

Distant Voices (S3 E18)

After being attacked by Lethean, he is knocked unconscious. Whilst unconscious, he imagines the station is his mind and his fellow crew members are aspects of his personality as he tries to wake himself up.

It is in this episode we learn he wanted to be a tennis player during a game with Elim Garak. Elim, it turns out is the disguised alter-ego of the Lethean inside his brain. Only when the Lethean is defeated will he wake up.

Our Man Bashir (S4 E10)

With Bashir coming from England, the producers decided to create an episode where he pretends to be a spy very much in the James Bond mould. Bashir is relaxing in the holodeck dressed up in a tuxedo when there is something wrong with the transporters trying to beam crew members across. The only way to save the crew is to move their stored data into the game.

Captain Benjamin Sisko plays the role of the Doctor Noah, the antagonist in the story. The name is a play on Doctor No, the first screen bad guy that James Bond would face off against in movies. If any character is killed, their patterns are lost so Bashir must defeat Noah without killing any of the characters.

The plot revolves around Noah planning on destroying the world from atop his secret lair on Everest. Col. Kira Nerys appears as Colonel Anastasia Komananov, a KGB agent with whom Bashir gets advice from. Ambassador Worf plays Duchamps, a henchman of Doctor Noahs.

The Quickening

Julian arrives on a planet where nearly the entire populace is infected by the Blight, a disease. The planet was once advanced but they refused to join The Dominion so the Dominion unleashed the virus on the planet. The disease caused lessions on the skin and death when the lessions changed. Julian wanted to find a cure for the disease but he was unable to. What he did find was a vaccination to prevent the disease from being passed further down the line.

How come the actor's name was Siddig El Fadil and now his name is Alexander Siddig? First he looked a little changed, so I thought it was some kind of twin brother. Interesting friendship between Julian and Jadzia Dax.
