96. Distant Voices (3.18)

Synopsis: After an alien assault leaves Bashir unconscious, he is trapped inside his mind.

Memory Alpha SummaryAt least it’s a genetically enhanced mind! Wait, am I not supposed to know that yet?

Review: A rather intriguing premise from the get-go, but soons gets bogged down in endless psychobabble.

I’ve never cared for stories that take place inside someone’s mind, especially when it uses Freudian theories. I will say it was a cool idea to have his fellow officers represent the different aspects of his mind, but it was way more fun before everyone knew what was going on. Perhaps I would have loved this in the hands of another actor, but I don’t think Siddig is quite up to the task. It’s very hard for an actor to have conversations with himself and evoke pathos.
