Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 04 E 24 The Quickening
Bashir and Dax arrive on a Dominion ravaged world, and set to work trying to cure the fatal blight all the populace have been cursed with.


  • Bittersweet Ending: Bashir fails to cure the people living with the blight, but he accidentally figures out how to immunize their unborn children.
  • Heroic BSOD: Bashir goes into one when his attempts to help only make things worse. He comes out of it when they finally yield some measure of success.
  • Meaningful Name: Trevean is an anagram of "veteran" and Ekorio is an anagram of "rookie." The writer, Naren Shankar, said that kind of thing helps him with characterization.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Bashir's medical equipment only makes the disease worse.
  • Wasteland Elder: Trevean.
