Some day, when I'm awfully low, when the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you... and the way you look tonight.
You are lovely with your smile so warm and your cheeks so soft,
there is nothing for me but to love you, just the way you look tonight.
With each word your tenderness grows, tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose touches my foolish heart.
Lovely... never never change. Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it? 'Cause I love you... just the way you look tonight.
Vic Fontaine is the most famous singing hologram of the Star Trek universe. In many
DS9 episodes he touched our hearts with his songs.
The Way You Look Tonight was his final song aboard DS9 in the very last
episode. He was a prominent singer who performed in the 1960s in the city of Las Vegas, United States. Vic's
repertoire contains songs of his contemporary colleagues such as Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington and Dean Martin.
In 2374, an interactive recreation of Fontaine was featured in a holosuite program created by Felix for his friend
Julian Bashir. This remarkable simulation not only captured Fontaine's personality and sophisticated singing style,
but was self-aware, giving him an attitude appropriate for the period. Vic referred to himself, as well as to other
holographic characters, as a
The Fontaine hologram was designed to be highly perceptive of the intricacies of interpersonal relationships. Both Bashir and Odo found his advice helpful in their respective love lives.
Later, Vic got permission to be permanently activated as a reward for helping Nog out of his depressions.
