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)

Goofs

The hearing as a means to delay the extradition of Jadzia Dax in order to find evidence for her defense would be unnecessary. Even if the Klaestron IV representative was correct that they could conduct a "unilateral" extradition, the assault on Bashir would provide Sisko the right to hold their entire team for trial rendering moot the need for the hearing since they could not transport Dax while in custody for assault.

Quotes

[Quark has refused to close his bar for the extradition hearing out of business reasons]
Odo: Since the provisional government took over, they've got their hands into everything and of course, I'm the one who's expected to enforce their rules here.
Quark: Ha!
Odo: You know, I think this bar is just a little too near the exit.
Quark: This is blackmail.
Odo: No, it's just business. And "business is business".

Very interesting coincidence
12 December 2006 | by GlorieuxJSee 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.
