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)

Jadzia starts to go nuts....and I was bored senseless by it all.
20 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, Commander Sisko is throwing a little dinner party. Jadzia sees a keyboard and begins playing some odd melody. No biggie, right? Well, she seems obsessed with the tune and begins acting a bit oddly over the course of the next few days. In fact, it's as if she's having a nervous breakdown. Ultimately, this necessitates a trip to Trill along with Dr. Bashir and Sisko to get to the bottom of this.

What follows is a bit of Trill intrigue--none of which is very interesting and ALL of which is incredibly subdued. The show simply lacks energy--like the cast are doing a read-through instead of acting. Limp and dull from start to finish and a show that really failed to keep my interest.
