Did You Know?


In the scene involving O'Brien as Tobin Jadzia mentions that, Tobin had "the most original approach to the proof since Wiles over 300 years ago." regarding Tobin's work on Fermat's last theorem. This appears to be a nod to Wiles' solution to Fermat's Last Theorem which had just been published a month before the airing of this episode. This mathematical formula had previously been mentioned by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in TNG: "The Royale", who referred it as being having unsolved for over 800 years. See more »


Before the memory ceremony with Curzon Dax, Jazdia Dax is shown struggling with the reason with Curzon behaved the way he did as a previous host, and Jadzia speaks to Benjamin Sisko of not knowing why Curzon did specific things in his life. This is contradicted in several other episodes, most notably "Blood Oath" when Jadzia is shown to clearly remember everything Curzon did and the reason why. See more »

If One Accepts the Premise, It Turns Out to Be Fun
17 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In the original Star Trek, some aliens who have no corporeal form any more, take over the bodies of some crew members, with their permission. Of course, eventually they are expected to return them but they choose not to. There is a bit of this going on here as Jadzia asks her closest crew members to allow her previous incarnations to inhabit their bodies. I guess when everything is made up, the writers can just make up some more stuff. If there is a real positive, it is further evidence of what Odo is. I do get tired of the Curzon guy at times. He seems like he was kind of an Ernest Hemingway figure.
