When Kira travels to Bajor to meet with Shakaar, the jealous Odo seeks advice in Dr. Bashir's new holosuite program set in a Las Vegas casino. The local singer called Vic Fontaine, an unusually sophisticated hologram, introduces Odo to some holographic women to gain practice, including a reproduction of Kira. But Odo can't ignore that they are unreal. When Kira returns, Vic invites her for dinner on the holodeck, and he invites Odo too, not telling him she is real. Odo is embarrassed when he learns the truth after treating Kira like a hologram. But when the two later have an argument on the promenade deck, Odo brings himself to kiss her. A few days later, Odo visits Vic in the holosuite to deliver thanks for bringing him and Kira, now a couple, together.

Shirlyn Wong on Wednesday, February 03, 1999 - 1:44 pm: I agree, she even donned a costume when she went with Dax in The Way of the Warrior.
