I think Poor Ezri has taken alot of crap, and i thought i'd give my angle why i like her.


She portrayed a fine job of a new recruit trying to deal with being an "old soul". She had 1 season to develop a character that was a fresh recruit. Given more time she could have possibly been a very strong character, such as the books portray her to be now. Also she was a very likeable character, sweet, dealing with confidence issues perhaps, but still holding her own in a battle. Later in book canon, she becomes a captain, and commands one of the coolest and most powerful ships in the fleet. And she did so by picking up the pieces of a diasterous situation in which the command crew was killed and she was forced to take the helm, and she did an excellent job, showing her growth in character. So the question is, why do people like the often drunk, impulsive with questionable taste in men, jadzia, but hate the sweet full of potential ezri? thats my 2 cents anyways.

I also prefer Ezri to Jadzia. I think, Jadzia is an important part of Ezri and without Jadzia Ezri's character would have been pretty lame. The changing of hosts is an important part of the Trill culture and to not include such an important, permanent and radical change sometime in the show would have been quite stupid of the writers or producers or whoever was responsible for creating the Trill.


I think if Ezri had come in maybe, Season 4 or 5 her character could have been way more popular today.

She was a fine Character , and Dendodge will soon show up to lavish praise on her, but IMHO Jadzia was better.

I preferred Jadzia, from the television series. But, I am beginning to appreciate Captain Ezri Dax, from her adventures on the U.S.S. Aventine, in the novels.  Interestingly, she seems to be better when her own personality emerges, rather than just being another host for Dax.

I liked Ezri somewhat and I think in time the character would have grown on me. She just had the misfortune of following in the path of a very popular long-term character. I was not ready to fully accept another Dax on the station. The whole situation felt forced.

Am I that predictable?

There's nothing wrong with having an itsy-bitsy obsession with a fictional character. Especially one as awesome as Ezri.

She was better than Jadzia, a lot more easygoing.

When i first saw her i was still mad about the death of Jadzia but as the season went on i really got to like the character, she had and interesting perspective on a lot of things as well as having to fight an internal battle. I am not sure i would go as far as loving her as much as you Dendoge.... But then again one needs his goals to keep going
