Storyline

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 (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Renora: Lieutenant Dax, you are either 200 years older than I am or you're about the same age as my great granddaughter. At first I wondered which of those you were; now I am bothered by the likelihood that you may be both.

Solid Character Development
5 March 2008 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

This is one of the more affective character development episodes in DS9. We learn a lot about Jadzia Dax - or more correctly, Dax, the symbiont whose memory and personality Jadzia's personality is welded to. Dax is on trial for extradition to a planet where a previous incarnation - Sisko's friend Curzon Dax has apparently committed treason. Sisko comes to his/her defense, and argues, seemingly untenably, that Jadzia is not responsible for Curzon's acts. Jadzia refuses to defend herself. Meanwhile, Odo digs farther and deeper.

What I found very interesting about this episode is how Jadzia, Curzon and Dax's characters are so well illustrated in this episode with very little dialog or even facial expressions from them. Farrell, Brooks, and two of the guest stars - Fionnula Flanagan and Gregory Itzn stand out for acting in this one. The script is very good but also check out GlorieuxJ's enlightening review - I had no idea! The cinematography and directing are up the series' usual high standard.
