“Vic Fontaine was a 24th century Human hologram on Deep Space 9 created as part of a program simulating 1962 Las Vegas on Earth. He was a singer-entertainer who ran Vic’s Las Vegas Lounge. His holoprogram, along with his charming personality, quickly became a favorite among the DS9 crew and was frequently accessed.” (source: Memory Alpha)
I love Vic Fontaine, he is awesome. We’ve just re-watched the episode that introduces him – “His Way” – and I bet you can easily guess the reference. Just like Frank Sinatra, Vic is classy and a straight talker too. He is such a great addition to the cast of Deep Space Nine, he fits perfectly in the ambiance of the space station and I’m delighted to know that our rerun has finally reached the episodes featuring the old crooner.
