I liked Sarina and her story about being cured of her impairment, but I was really angry at Bashir. How unprofessional can you be?

Also, the security that fell for 'That's a stupid question' should be demoted. I give it a 6.

Sarina features prominently as Bashir's girlfriend in the Typhon Pact/Fall/Section 31 novel series timeline. I liked Faith Salie's performance as Sarina. Bashir pushes things too quickly here though. I do find their arrival implausible, but it was played off for comedic effect. With the trio's fascination with the Big Crunch in one trillion years, I kind of wonder how Bashir got wrapped up in their projections in an earlier episode.

7/10

For a bunch of geniuses in the 24th century, I would have expected them to know that the Big Crunch is most likely not going to happen, and that the fate of the universe is probably the exact opposite. Unless they know something I don't. Which is possible, I guess. I'm not the genius after all.
