Story: Statistical Probabilities
Written By: René Echevarria
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Four genetically enhanced patients of a mental institution are brought to the station to try and learn how to contribute to society, much like our Dr. Bashir. At first they seem hopeless, but when they are able to tell so much about Damar just by watching his speech on a monitor…he wonders if they are capable of more. They are able to figure out the Dominion’s plan in some negotiations, but then they take their projections to a new level.
When the help of one person derails their plan, it makes Bashir wonder if maybe they haven’t really factored in all the equations. There may be hope yet. It is a good episode, really entertaining, and also one that makes you think.
