you know you're a Trekkie when...

...you recognize Dr. Bashir from Deep Space Nine from the tiniest fraction of a second he appears in the 30-second TV trailer for the new movie Syriana...

Sorry...that cracked me up...still laughing!

Yes, it did require a Tivo rewind & pause to verify the name (Alexander Siddig) but I was RIGHT! To add more geekness, which I realize is not necessary, I also know that for the first few seasons of DS9 on the opening credits he was Siddig El Fadil before he changed to Alexander Siddig...and that he & Nana Visitor (Kira) got married before the series ended...it was their baby who was written into the plot when Kira was surrogate mother for the O'Briens...okay, Britta, you can stop now! :P

You're not alone...

I'm also a fan of the good doctor and knew about the name change. Evidently Siddig El Fadil wasn't too catchy to the Western ear. Did not know about him and Nana Visitor, though. How did I miss that???

He also bears a certain similarity to Dr. Gaius Baltar from the new Battlestar Galactica. Hmm....
