Well, Avenger. Manny Coto is executive producer of the show. You might recognize the name from the credits of Enterprise. While he had no direct involvement in DS9 as far as I can tell, he was part of the Paramount sci-fi powerhouse for a number of years. As such, it should probably come as no surprise that he incorporates stars from Star Trek. As for not recognizing good doctor Julin, I can only offer an admonishing "tsk, tsk."
