Doctor Julian Subatoi Bashir, This is Your Life! is a mostly gen Star Trek: Deep Space Nine anthology focusing on Julian Bashir with two issues.

Given to the Actor

This was one of three zines personally given to the actor at the second Lunch with the Doctor. The editor gave Sid a copy of Palpitations, and he said that he would record some of the stories on tape.

Another fan gave him a copy of Doctor Julian Subatoi Bashir: This is Your Life. "Again, Sid said: "I presume I'll get at least a couple of these on tape. I don't know when that will be."

Finally, [L F] presented him with Through the Wormhole, showing him the Dax centerfold." [1]

From the submission request in Flight Log:
Dr. Julian Subatoi Bashir, This is Your Life Too is currently taking submissions. This is a themed zine, focusing on Bashir's life. Stories can be set in the past/ present/future, and focus on any part of his life. If you read the first one (and if you didn' t, why not!?), you know it was heavy in the 'father-angst' stories. This one is starting off on a much lighter vein. What I was attempting to do with this was map Bashir's entire life. Some ideas: the academy, his travels with his father, his medical career, winning the Carrington at age 115, marrying Dax/Kira/other. If you're not sure about a submission, send it or ask; you never know unless you try! The only hard and fast rule I have is that in the 'present time', Bashir must be (have been?) the CMO of DS9. Accepted: IBM compatible disk (saved as ASCII or text), e-mail to [address redacted] or double-spaced typewritten to [address redacted]. Stories less than 80 pages. If it's been posted on the internet, chances are good I've already seen it, and quite possibly liked it. If you want to submit it, wonderful! Just tell me where I can locate it. Soliciting artwork and any creative endeavor (poetry, filk, cartoons, dunno, submit it and see). Desperately seeking artists to illo stories!!
