Episode propagandaA group of genetically enhanced Humans, once under Bashir's (Alexander Siddig) care, escape from their medical facility home in the hopes that the Doctor - who himself was genetically engineered as a child - can cure their friend Serena (Faith C Salie). Her enhancements left her in a catatonic state, and Bashir attempts an untried procedure on her brain that initially appears to have no effect. However, a few days later Serena speaks for the first time.

The return of the genetically-enhanced to DS9 is a bit of a dodgy idea. Sure, it's nice to follow up on an old story, but, hmmm...
Well, sure it's an interesting idea, curing an incurable disorder (with a little help from the technobabble dictionary), and sure, it's interesting to see Julian fall in love (after having his heart broken by Dax) with a patient, but gee, this episode really doesn't do it for me.
I don't feel like saying any more. Perhaps I've had to much medication. Oh, for a government-subsidised, non-drowsy, high-powered analgesic.
