An injured cytoplasmic life-form attaches itself to Torres, tapping into her body like a parasite. Unsure of how to save his patient, The Doctor creates a holographic recreation of a non-humanoid exobiology specialist to consult the case. The consult is going well until Torres refuses treatment when it is made known the Cardassian specialist was responsible for tortuous experiments resulting in the deaths of thousands of Bajorans.

If the presence of Dr. Moset's image is so offensive to Lt. Torres, there are several options which the characters could take. Transfer Moset's knowledge to the regular Doctor's data banks, so that only Lewis Zimmerman's hologram need be seen in the operating room. Or, with a single computer command, alter Moset's appearance so that he doesn't look Cardassian. If you think of it, you can imagine several more obvious common sense scenarios along these lines. However, their real moral qualm is using the research of someone who created that research in heinous ways. Changing his appearance or moving the information around doesn't change where it came from.
