  • A dark and tense episode which sees a desperate Trill attempt to steal the Dax symbiont, which would mean Jadzia's death...

    In this episode DS9 is hi-jacked (again! Which actually makes twice in two episodes, but who's counting?) by a slightly deranged Trill named Verad who is desperate to be joined with a symbiont. And he's decided that the symbiont he wants to join with is...Dax.

    This is a solid, taut Dax story which is well-written, nicely executed and has some great performances (particularly John Glover as Verad). The hostage drama plays out surprisingly well and Quark again provides some neat comic relief in an otherwise dark and intense story. Look out for Tim Russ (Tuvok from Voyager) playing one of Verad's Klingon entourage...
