A science team of Trills comes to visit the station to do a test on creating artificial wormholes. The leader of the team is Dr. Lenara Kahn, a joined Trill. The former host of the Kahn symbiont was Nilani. She was the wife of Torias, one of Dax's former hosts. On Trill, it is strictly forbidden to re-associate with a past lover. The punishment is exile, meaning the symbiont will die. To avoid problems, Sisko offers Jadzia Dax to take extended leave. She denies and thinks she's up to the task. But when Jadzia and Lenara start working on the science project, they both seem to get along really well. While they try deny it at first, the romantic spark between them isn't gone.

Did You Know?
This show really doesn't follow the ST:DS9 bible. It has well been established that when a Trill chances hosts it creates a new entity, different in personality, knowledge and beliefs. The Trill only influences the host, not dominate them. So while there is no problem with DAX, with a former host, being in love with KAHN from a former host, it makes no sense that JADZIA Dax, with her new personality, would still be in love with LENARA Kahn, with her own new personality.

For a joined Trill, nothing is more important than to protect the life of the symbiont. Nothing.
