|Karen Loews (2374)|
|Played by:||Jeannetta Arnette|
In 2374, Doctor Loews was responsible for the care of a number of patients who had undergone a procedure called accelerated critical neural pathway formation. This procedure had left Loews' patients with extremely advanced mental abilities, but severe problems in fitting in to normal society.
In 2374, after the revelation that Julian Bashir had also undergone the procedure but had managed to maintain a normal life, Loews took four of her patients – Jack, Lauren, Patrick, and Sarina – to Deep Space 9 in the hope that Bashir could show them that it was possible to function in normal society.
