KukalakaThere are many reasons why I love Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and why it remains my favorite of the Star Trek franchise.

Reason #65: Kukalaka

Doctor Julian Bashir‘s first patient was Kukalaka. As a child Bashir restuffed and stitched his teddy bear back together performing his first surgery at the age of five. And he’s been mending his friend ever since.

Kukalaka is refered to in a handful of episodes including “In the Cards” when Bashir enlists the help of Jake Sisko and Nog to recover his childhood friend from Lita (who refused to give him back after the pair’s relationship ended) and, if you’re quick, you can catch a glimpses of him in Bashir’s quarters in “The Quickening” and “Inquisition.”
