Jadzia meets her previous hosts
10 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As Jadzia prepares for the Trill ceremony of Zhian'tara. To help her in this she has invited Sisko, Kira, Bashir, O'Brien, Odo, Quark and Leeta to hake part, each of them in turn will hold the memory of each of Dax's previous hosts so Jadzia can talk to that host. The first few meetings go well but when Sisko hosts the murderer Joran Dax things go very wrong and he attacks Jadzia... this isn't the meeting that causes the most trouble though; when Odo hosts Curzon Jadzia must face her insecurities about why Curzon initially blocked her application to become joined. To make matters worse he and Odo announce that they plan to stay together which would leave Jazia without Curzon's memories. In a secondary story Rom is taking an exam to get onto a course that should help him get into Star Fleet.

This episode might not have had much action but it was still pretty good as it gives us a further insight into Jadzia and her previous hosts. It was amusing to see Quark hosting a female Trill but the stand out performance was from Rene Auberjonois who played a combined Odo/Curzon; the linking had, unlike the others, led to a mixed personality and a change in his appearance. The story about Nog is less interesting but helps advance his character from a once annoying child to a young Star Fleet officer.
