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.

Very interesting coincidence
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not really rating this episode, but I simply want to point out the very interesting coincidence that the main underlying plot for it, i.e., an extradition hearing (here for Lieutenant Dax), is the same as that of Episode 10 of the fourth season of Northern Exposure (entitled "Crime and Punishment") that aired exactly two months earlier (12/14/92) and centered around an extradition hearing for "Chris in the morning". In both cases the somewhat improvised defense was successfully made on the grounds that the person being sought for extradition was no longer the same as the one who had committed the alleged crime (murder for Lt. Dax, parole violation for Chris) as a result of an extensive change of their personality (changing host body for Lt. Dax, becoming a radio show host for Chris). The "icing on the cake" is that for both episodes the hearing judge is played by the SAME actress, Anne Haney.
