Doctor Bashir is smitten by a new officer who arrives on the station. However, her race struggles with "standard" gravity and she is confined to a wheelchair until Bashir discovers a treatment...
Another great "what do you think audience?" episodes. In this we get to see the character who was going to be our chief science officer before it was deemed too hard to replicate week in week out.

That made this outing all the more special I feel - because the effects crew could go all in on the effects for a one off and draw us in for a more real experience with limited gravity. This is also the beginning of a more likeable Doctor Bashir.
