-Dr. Bashir, speaking to Sisko in the SF ghetto of 2020s on Earth. Episode: Past Tense, part 1.
Let's say that this episode concluded with another transporter accident that took Bashir to the year of 2409, as seen in Star Trek Online. What would he say? How would he react? Does this universe and the actions of humanity "stay true to our ideals?" Why or why not?
i think his first question would be;
"So this is what the Alpha Quadrant has been reduced to? Chaos and destruction everywhere! While Starfleet admirals plot for more wars and yet more death! If this is truely the future of Starfleet, i want no part of it. Doesn't the hippocratic oath mean anything to anyone anymore?"
