Didn't we just have a "whodunnit"?  Guess this was Julian's turn.  Sid managed to keep the mustache-twirling to a minimum thankfully while playing possessed-Bashir.

And it's always nice to see Julie Caitlin Brown.

It was nice seeing Julie Caitlin Brown again, ironically she left Babylon 5 over make-up concerns yet appeared on DS9 in another make-up job.
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

It is ironic.  But in the case of B5, it would have been on a MUCH more long term basis than as a guest star in an episode.  I think something like that, she can tolerate in short spurts rather than a long haul.

Plus, her alien makeup on B5 was FAR more involved than here.  Not to mention contacts that she might have ended up not being able to take.

She didn't have a problem with make-up, she just didn't like having her face covered up from what JMS said.

This episode is pretty bland, yet another "let's try doing TNG on DS9!" attempt. There's a few notable chararcter scenes that are respectable (mostly involving Odo) but the main plot is generic, with a final act that collapses with a bizarre Siddig performance and loads of technobabble. Wake me up when the show figures out what it wants to be.
