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

Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: When one of my kind stumbles, Benjamin, it is a mistake that's there forever. I can't tell you which part of Curzon Dax couldn't stop himself from acting shamefully with another man's wife. I can tell you that he did love her - for whatever that's worth.
Commander Sisko: Enough to kill her husband?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: So you are questioning?
Commander Sisko: What else can I do?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Nothing, Benjamin. Nothing at all.

When the legend is fact, print the legend
16 October 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Terry Farrell and the very nature of her Trill character Dax are the subject of this episode of Deep Space 9 when she is nearly kidnapped off the station. The kidnappers are from another planet where some 30 earth years ago Curzon Dax was involved with some planetary rebels in many ways.

Curzon was a flamboyant rogue of sorts, unusual for prescribed Trill behavior who was a mentor of sorts for young Benjamin Sisko. He is defending Dax past and present though Terry Farrell won't lift a finger in her defense.

Rene Auberjonois goes to the other planet and looks at documents and interviews Fionnula Flanagan the widow of the deceased. All the answers are there.

You know it comes out good for Terry Farrell because she's back for the series run. As for the answer it might best come a classic movie, when the legend becomes fact print the legend.

Nice performance by Anne Haney as the arbiter from Bajor presiding over the extradition hearing.
