By coincidence, I watched the DS9 episode "Our Man Bashir" last night -- the one where Dr Bashir plays a James Bond-like secret agent in a holodeck program -- and the following exchanges (from different scenes) caught my ear:

CAPRICE: Who's that?  [pointing to Garak, who just entered the holosuite]
BASHIR:    An uninvited guest. 
WORF:      Your invitation, Mister Merriweather? 
BASHIR:    I don't have one. 
WORF:      The Doctor does not like unexpected guests. 
BASHIR:   You must not get many tourists
SISKO:      My guests and I place a premium on our privacy. We don't want 
                 any unwelcomed guests, such as men sent by governments who 
                 disagree with my political philosophy. 

BTW Sisko was playing the holo-character of evil mastermind "Doctor Noah".  <g>

Thanks, De'vID, this is exactly the kind of "digging" I love so much.
I've updated the page at the wiki:
