|I liked Ezri. She was very different to Jadzia but still Dax. Jadzia was one of my favorites so obviously I prefer her to Ezri. But they're both Dax and I love the Dax character so it was nice to see a brand new host and how she dealt with being joined. I was very saddened by Jadzia's death at the end of season 6 but they kept her ''memory'' alive with constant references and through Ezri so it still felt like she was there in spirit. The last episode bugged me when she didn't feature in anyone's flashbacks. That stood out like a sore thumb in an otherwise excellent scene.|
I'm three years too late to reply to this, but anyway...
To be fair to the DS9 staff, they asked Terry Farrell for the rights to use her image in that flashback sequence but she said no.
