“Fate has granted me a gift, Major. A gift to be a healer.”
--Dr. Julian Bashir
It’s tough to know what to make of DS9’s resident medical officer on first blush. He’s naïve, arrogant, and oblivious to all but the most blatant social cues. He’s eager for challenges, but doesn’t yet know what those challenges mean. He embodies the can-do, starry-eyed, boyish sense of adventure that the British Empire always imagined it had. He is a pretty bold creation by the writing staff, if they intended him as I believe they did: a character as intentionally obnoxious as possible, that they might eventually redeem somehow. Bashir’s character becomes even more fascinating in retrospect, as a later revelation places his early overweening arrogance in a much darker context.

I remember getting my first Star Wars novel as a gift. It was the third of Michael Stackpole’s X-Wing books, The Krytos Trap. Who it was from is hazy in my memory, since my dad was the middleman in the transaction. I’m sure he told me, but I don’t remember. The Krytos Trap became the first “grown-up” novel I ever read. I was a big reader, but I hadn’t yet made the leap from the Young Adult section. My nights were filled, usually, with the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, with Animorphs, along with the various books we were reading for class in third grade, in which I tended to read ahead.
