On January 11, 1993, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine introduced the first gay power couple of the 24th century … Garak and Bashir. One’s a dashing young doctor. The other’s a simple tailor who might also be a spy. From the very moment they met, their chemistry was delicious. And fans wondered: would these star-crossed lovers find their way into each other’s arms on screen? With Garak and Bashir, Star Trek had a golden opportunity to be the first major franchise on TV to star a same-sex couple… so what went wrong?
