D is for Dax

D is for Dax but who is she? Dax is the mysterious Star Trek symbiont who joins with the lovely Deep-space Nine Jadzia, who's a Starfleet lieutenant. Theres no easy way to explain this so I'll blurt it out. We're discussing two separate species here. One is a beautiful 28 year old female humaniod with a series of intricate, freckle-like markings from her temples to her shoulders and the other is a large fat slimey worm aka as Dax the warrior.

The good news is the creature shares with the "Trill" (which is really a humanoid shell), a wealth of life experiences and knowledge. The bad news is "Dax" the symbiote is over 300 years old and has made a number of Klingon friends. When Kang, Koloth and Kor come looking for their ol' pal Curzon-Dax, (previous host and creature) they simply couldn't believe their eyes. I guess you might say Jadzia is the ideal fix for a new life in the "witness protection program." Apparently Jadzia studied all her life to become a brilliant scientist and have a slug stuck inside her. Its the greatest honor a trill can give.

Trill long and Prosper, trekinators.

Both Dax hosts on DS9 were a lot hotter than the worm itself. That would be pretty creepy to me to have a worm stuck in me with a bunch of other people's memories.

Jadzia Dax was my favorite character of DS9. I thought it interesting that they changed a little of the life stories of Trills from TNG to DS9. The story in DS9 was that removing the symbiot would kill the host. But when they put it in Riker they were able to remove ultimately, safely. Maybe you can't remove it from a Trill.

Dax was sexy!

Mark Means said...

I never cared much for that character, but thought it was an interesting society they had.

I didn't really care for the character, but the society is definitely interesting!

Sisko called Jadzia "Old Man" because he was also one of Curzon's acquaintances. Dax is fantastic in any form, even Odo.

Dax is one of my favorites, too. Interesting. Definitely not an average character.

Jadzia Dax was definitely one of my favourite characters from DS9.
She had a lot of confidence and held her own among the crew (and the Klingons). She was a good role model for a young girl trying to find herself as she went from teenager to adult.
