Vic Fontaine

Vic Fontaine was a highly advanced self-aware holographic character. He worked in the lounge of a Las Vegas hotel as a singer in a holoprogram which was kept on permanently in one of the holosuites in Quark's on Deep Space 9.

Vic acted to an extent as an unofficial counselor on DS9 and enjoyed familiar relationships with many of the stations residents. He was also aware he was a hologram and had access to station files allowing him to keep up to date with real world current affairs. Vic also has the ability to freely roam other holoprograms.




Vic was designed by Julian Bashir's friend Felix and was activated on DS9 in late 2374. He was instrumental in helping Odo to gain the confidence to begin a real relationship with Kira Nerys. (DS9 novel: Hollow Men, DS9 episode: "His Way")

Several months later, Vic performed a rendition of Here's to the Losers for Bashir and Quark after the pair became despondent over the fact Worf and Jadzia Dax had become able to have children. Vic urged them to move on. (DS9 episode: "Tears of the Prophets")


Three months later, Worf would seek solace in the lounge after Jadzia's death. Worf would ask him to perform All the Way, Jadzia's favorite song. Worf would get angry and start smashing the lounge. Vic asked Bashir to do something, as his band was threatening to quit. (DS9 episode: "Image in the Sand")

Later that year, Bashir asked Vic to record several of his songs to play to the troops on the front line of the war on AR-558. Bashir played it just before the Jem'Hadar attacked. (DS9 episode: "The Siege of AR-558")

After losing his leg at AR-558, Nog sought an escape from his life by joining Vic in the holosuite. Although Vic welcomed Nog and was amazed at the experience of his program being active for so long, he realised Nog needed to return to his old life. Vic ended the program himself. (DS9 episode: "It's Only a Paper Moon")

Several months later, a jack-in-the-box was activated, turning Vic's lounge into a casino run by his old rival Frank "Frankie Eyes" Chalmers. The DS9 crew later came to Vic's aid and staged an elaborate theft of money from the casino. (DS9 episode: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

Vic performs a song.

Later that year, during the Battle of Cardassia, Quark joined Vic in several card games such as pinochle and Go Fish. Vic knew Quark was concerned about his friends on the USS Defiant.

After the Allies were victorious, Vic held a "end-of-the-war-good-bye-Chief-O'Brien-good-bye-Odo-good-bye-Worf" party in his lounge. Vic performed a moving rendition of The Way You Look Tonight for his friends. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")


In April 2376 Vic, over coffee, counselled Bashir over his argument with Ezri Dax. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

Leonard James Akaar became a fan of Vic's and visited the lounge while he was on the station. (DS9 novel: Cathedral)

Later that year he interrupted one of Taran'atar's training programs to ask him to "keep it down". (DS9 novel: Cathedral)

Alternate timelines

In an alternate timeline, Vic was still active in the year 28,397 and accompanies Odo to the Guardian of Forever. (ST short story: "Guardians")
