Bashir Alien

The Bashir Alien was a Wormhole Alien who twice appeared in the form of Julian Bashir.

He was first present when Quark entered the Bajoran wormhole in 2371 to ask the Wormhole Aliens to restore Zek to his former self. Initially Quark thought it to be the actual Bashir and asked it what he was doing there, not realizing it was a Prophet. (DS9: "Prophet Motive")

Batter Alien

A Prophet posing as a baseball batter

The Batter Alien or Alien Batter was a Wormhole Alien who appeared in the form of a batter from the Chicago Cubs, who was one of several to whom Benjamin Sisko tried to explain the concept of linear time in 2369.

Sisko discovered that the Wormhole Aliens had no concept of linear time and thus considered his presence disruptive. He tried to explain the concepts of past, present, and future, via the memories of his life. He further explained that Humans had choices and these choices shaped future events, without prior knowledge of the actual outcome.

He used baseball as an example, though the batter believed that baseball showed Humans to be adversarial and aggressive. Sisko then explained that it was just a game. (DS9: "Emissary")

This prophet was played by Kevin McDermott.
He was credited as "Alien Batter", and scripted as "Batter Alien".
In an early draft of the script, the character was to have been Ty Cobb, although this was changed to being an unnamed Chicago Cubs batter to avoid rights payments. The novelization of Emissary retained the batter as being Cobb. (The Making of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [page number?edit])

The alien believed that Sisko was deceiving them.

After Akorem Laan had briefly assumed the role of Emissary of the Prophets in 2372 and reinstated the d'jarras , this wormhole alien told Akorem that the d'jarras were in the past, which Sisko had taught them meant that it was no more; it also explained that they had sent Akorem into the future for the Sisko who was their Emissary.

In 2375, she contacted him in order for him to release the Prophets who had been imprisoned by a Pah-wraith. She revealed the existence of the Orb of the Emissary on the planet Tyree.
