Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: On the eve of a trip to Romulus for a conference and seminar on the Dominion, Bashir is visited by Sloan, who wants him to gather data on the Romulan leadership. Sisko advises Bashir that this might be a good way to learn more about Section 31 as well. At the conference, Sloan tells Bashir that he is to diagnose Chairman Koval of the Tal Shiar, who is suspected to have a disease called Tuvan syndrome. Believing that Sloan may be planning to use the disease as a cover to assassinate Koval, Bashir has no one to turn to except a Romulan senator.
