In the beginning, Bashir and O'Brien seem to be very different men, but over the course of the series, their friendship builds similarity upon similarity. This relationship is one that deepens moment by moment, a relationship that's about building up trust and hope, about turning a somewhat faltering beginning into one of the deepest and strongest relationships that we ever get to see on Trek.
Miles's wife Keiko O'Brien appears in many B/O'B stories, usually as an obstacle to the relationship. Her character is often portrayed negatively in such stories, divorcing Miles or warning Julian off. Some stories focus on Miles's attempts to resist his attraction to Julian in order to remain faithful to his wife. Occasionally, however, the situation resolves into a threesome.
