Bashir tries to help Garak, who is suffering debilitating headaches caused by an implant in his brain.

The Trekzone Review

Deep Space Nine is the only series of Star Trek – so far – to delve into the deep backstory of our secondary characters. Andrew Robinson expertly crafted Garak while losing some of the character’s mystery in this episode.

We begin to understand the clandestine organisation that all Cardassians fear and the friendship between Garak and Bashir is solidified here.
