Anastasia Komananov (Russian: Анастасия Комананов) was a character in the holoprogram Julian Bashir, Secret Agent. She was an operative for the KGB, ranked Colonel, and a rival spy to the main character played by Julian Bashir. However, despite being on opposite sides of a Cold War between their respective nations, Bashir and Komananov respected each other's abilities and even became lovers within the program.
In 2372, the explosion of the USS Orinoco caused the transporter patterns of its crew to be temporarily stored within the holoprogram. The character of Komananov subsequently took on the physical characteristics of Kira Nerys.
Komananov informed Bashir about a series of earthquakes around the world and that the two of them would work together to investigate the quakes. She then posed as the wife of Bashir's alias, Patrick Merriweather, and traveled with him and Garak to Paris. There, the three were rendered unconscious by Duchamps and transported to the hideout of Hippocrates Noah. While Noah planned to kill Bashir and Garak, Noah spared the life of Komananov, calling her a "spirited individual", which as a young, healthy woman would help him in creating a new Human race.
According to Bashir, the holoprogram would probably end with the death of either Komananov or Honey Bare, with the surviving woman ending up with him. Trying to prevent that and thus the death of either Kira or Jadzia Dax, Bashir stalled for time and claimed to believe in Noah's plan, actually activating the laser sequence to flood the planet's surface. Komananov then exclaimed in disbelief "you've destroyed the Earth". (DS9: "Our Man Bashir")
When Vic Fontaine was playing matchmaker for Kira and Odo in 2374, he modified the character of Anastasia Komananov to become Lola Chrystal. It took him an hour to get rid of her Russian accent. (DS9: "His Way")
