Bashir and O'Brien

Story: Armageddon Game
Written By: Morgan Gendel
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

Bashir and O’Brien are helping two warring factions destroy their biological weapons. But then everyone there is a attacked, and O’Brien and Bashir become trapped and alone on this planet, and they are declared dead on the station.
It is the first real glimpse at the relationship that will develop between the two characters, and for that reason it is an important episode. By the end of the episode, you can tell that the Chief is starting to actually like Julian, more so than he did by the end of “Rivals”.

I also loved the little joke at the end that Keiko’s whole basis for believing that O’Brien was alive was actually just a mistake. Hilarious.
