A group of aliens follows Jadzia Dax and then overpower her. They try to take her of the ship and commander Sisko is only barely able to stop the ship from flying off. Their leader introduces himself as Ilon Tandro from Klaestron IV. He has a warrant for Jadzia, as Curzon Dax is accused of murdering his father, a famous general, thirty years ago and of treason. While Sisko tries to stall her extradition by calling in a Bajoran juror, Dax seems not even willing to defend herself. Sisko tries to convince the judge Curzon and Jadzia are not the same person and sends Odo over to Klaestron IV to investigate. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Major Kira: What was exactly your relationship with Curzon Dax?
Commander Sisko: He took a raw young ensign under his wing, and taught me to appreciate life in ways I'd never thought about before. He taught me about art, and science, and diplomacy. Whatever sense of honor I might have today, he nurtured. Treason, murder - he was not capable of those things.

Can one symbiont be held responsible for the crimes of a previous pairing?
10 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with Dr. Bashir once again trying to make the moves on Jadzia Dax. It is interesting that sexual harassment and boorish behaviors are still acceptable in the 24th century. Soon after they part, three strangers set upon Jadzia and kidnap her. However, their plot is foiled and they are brought back onto the station to face Commander Sisko. He then learns that the trio have a valid extradition order for the arrest of Curzon Dax--the name given to the being that held Dax before it was recently paired with Jadzia. He also learns that the crimes he/she is wanted for are treason and murder! This certainly would not be like Curzon Dax-- yet, inexplicably, Jadzia Dax offers no defense at all! So, to stall for time, Sisko appeals to the Bajoran authorities to get them to hold an extradition hearing. Will the truth finally come out in this?

This is a decent episode with an interesting plot and finale. Worth seeing and thought-provoking.
