What were your favorite Jedzia Dax episodes? Frankly I can't decide who I liked more. Her or Troy. Troy had the hot feminine, feeling, Earth mother thing going on but there is something undeniably hot about retaining femininity and being able to actually do something important on the ship... like Jedzia :P

Come and listen to a story 'bout a Trill named Jedzia. :)  - sorry, channeling a little Beverly Hillbillies there.

"Dax" was pretty good for an early background story
"Facets" was humorous but a little contrived
"Rejoined" was solid television

But many others like "Equilibrium" and "Invasive Procedures" and many Dax/Worf episodes rarely did it for me.  I liked her character when she got a little bratty in "The Ship."

"Facets" and "Rejoined" are probably the best.  Episodes like "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places" and "Let He Who is Without Sin" are skippable.  I liked "Invasive Procedures" and "Equilibrium", but some of the best Jadzia bits are in ensemble episodes like "You are Cordially Invited" and "One Little Ship".

Facets. Mainly because it allowed the REST of the cast to show their acting skills!

BTW, it's "Jadzia" and not "Jedzia".

I'll have to think very hard about this because Jadzia is one of my least favourite characters.

If we're talking about episodes in which Jadzia has a good role, possibly "Looking for Par'Mach in all the Wrong Places." That's about as interesting as she gets.

I would class "Dax" and "Invasive procedures" among the better Jadzia-centred episodes -- except for the fact that she herself doesn't really have much of a role in either. To be honest, early season Jadzia Dax is a little bit boring. And she never really becomes an interesting character to me.

Many of the scenes of hers I like is usually because Julian is in them (or some other character like Worf or Kira.)

"Rejoined" is among my least favourite episodes. I guess the polls would be a better place to comment on why, but it's basically because I can't bring myself to care about Jadzia's love life (here or in Meridian) before Worf -- and because really I can't see that there is ANY chemistry between her and Lenara. And because Lenara is also a bit of a boring character actually.

I like Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places, also like Facets and Playing God, just not the young guy in that episode(so annoying), Rejoined isn't to bad, love the kiss scene, and You Are Cordially Invited, for Dax episodes I like.

Blood Oath, Invasive Procedures, Dax, Equilibrium, Change of Heart were decent episodes.

Only like Invasive Procedures mostly for the actor that steals Dax, as he also played Lionel Luthur in Smallville, good role to.

"Blood Oath" is the only good one that I remember. Terry Farrell clearly wasn't hired for her acting skills! After Season 4, Dax became Worf's sidekick, and the writers stopped writing episodes for her. Maybe she was a difficult character to figure out? That's the problem when the people who come up with the cast of characters are not the same people who actually have to write the show. Every Trek series has had this same problem -- Roddenberry created Tasha and Troi, and the writers had no idea what to do with them.

Rejoined is a classic, Blood Oath, Facets are all very good.    Even though Jadzia was really a support character she was very well done.

Why is "Rejoined" a classic? Just because it shows two women kissing does not make it a classic. It was just done for shock value.

I wasn't even thinking about that.    For me it was the story, the acting and the tangible pain of seperation that got me hooked.

The way it was performed I actually felt the hurt and the yearning expressed in the characters.

"Rejoined" was a classic Trek episode that actually dealt with the symbiotic aspect of Jadzia Dax in a meaningful way. I thought it was one of Trek's better love stories, even if the direction was kind of blah, and I'm not really sure Terry Ferrell can act. Along with "Dax" it was one of only a few episodes that dramatized the complications of being a Trill.

I'm sorry if seeing two women kissing shocks you. I don't think that was ever the intention of the episode.
