Storyline

At a Sisko house party, Jadzia sees a musical instrument. While she claims none of the hosts had even the slightest musical ability, she is able to get music out of it. She plays a tune and is frustrated she can't get it right. She gets obsessed by it, has trouble concentrating and starts behaving violently. When she gets hallucinations of a masked man that looks familiar, she is even more determined to find out what the music is and Sisko suggests running it through the Federation database. Then Bashir discovers Jadzia's isoboramine levels are down, a neurotransmitter between host and symbiont. Bashir has no clue why and he sees no other alternative than to take her to Trill, where the doctors of the Symbiosis Commission will examine her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Killer Dax
9 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the senior staff gather to enjoy a dinner with Commander Sisko Dax starts playing a musical instrument something she thought that none of her hosts has ever had a talent for. Afterwards she can't get the tune out of her head and behaves totally out of character; at one point she accuses Sisko of cheating at chess an acts in an almost threatening manner towards Kira. After an hallucination she sees Dr. Bashir and is told suffering from low levels of the chemical that links the symbiont and its host. In order to get the best treatment they take her back to Trill where they learn that in there may be a connection between Dax and a musician who died on the same day that one of Dax's previous hosts had died after a six month coma. The musician's brother tells Sisko that he believed he'd been joined despite there being no official records; he also said that he died after murdering one of the doctors. It appears that the people in charge of Trill joining have been keeping a secret, but why? Meanwhile it appears that Dax's condition could be terminal.

This was a decent episode which taught us more about Dax's past and the nature of the Trill. The only slight weakness was that I never really thought that Dax was in any danger although that might be because I'd seen the series before and knew she survive this episode.
