Overview

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

As a child, Bashir fell behind in school and his parents, Richard and Amsha Bashir, had him subjected to genetic engineering. The engineering made him superior to most humans in mental acuity and agility. However, because genetic engineering is illegal in the United Federation of Planets, Bashir and his parents kept his procedure a secret throughout most of his adult life (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?"). Bashir, in the Arabic language means "Bringer of Good Tidings", which is also coincidentally a name of the Prophet Muhammad.

Bashir finished second at Starfleet Medical, having purposely missed a question on his final exam (DS9: "Distant Voices"). He had his choice of assignments and chose Deep Space Nine for the opportunity to practice "frontier medicine" (DS9: "Emissary"). His overly enthusiastic, self-important nature make some members of the crew, such as Miles O'Brien and Kira Nerys, reluctant to spend time with him. However, he eventually becomes friends with O'Brien, Jadzia Dax, and Elim Garak. Bashir falls in love with Dax, who goes on to marry Worf. After her death, Bashir joins Worf on a mission to ensure that Jadzia's soul reaches Sto-Vo-Kor. Bashir and O'Brien become close friends, and are frequently shown playing games (like darts) or visiting the holosuite for a recreation of a historical battle.

Commander Sisko was a little more appreciative of Bashir: when some Federation ambassadors arrived on a fact-finding mission, Sisko appointed Bashir as "just the right officer to take them off my hands", but also warns the doctor not to 'hit anyone'; Sisko himself had been given a similar onerous task by Curzon, and he only got out of it when he punched one of the ambassadors.

During pre-Dominion war tensions, Bashir is kidnapped and sent to a Dominion prison camp and replaced with a shapeshifter (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow"). His replacement attempts to destroy the Bajoran sun, wiping out Bajor, DS9, and a fleet of Federation, Klingon, and Romulan ships (DS9: "By Inferno's Light").

Bashir's parents accidentally reveal his genetically engineered status. Bashir offers to resign his commission, but his parents instead arrange for his father to spend two years in prison in exchange for allowing Julian to continue his career. The logic being that for every Julian Bashir who is out to save lives, there is a Khan Noonien Singh who is out to destroy them.
