Our Man Bashir [One Offs Pilot]

This week’s pilot for One Offs takes Dave and Steve into familiar territory with Season 4, Episode 10 of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Listen as they boldly go where millions of people have gone before through a discussion of holodecks, Christmas episodes, and Bond girls. According to Netflix, in this week’s episode “Bashir is enjoying a holosuit program that casts him as a super suave, 1960s Earth secret agent when Garak intrudes on his fantasy.”
