I loved Jadzia. Ezri is intersting, but isn't quite as entertaining. It took awhile when I was a kid to stop "not liking" Ezri because she replaced Jadzia. It wasn't her fault. I am hoping that Ezri grows on me more when I get into the novels.

Ezri is written in the novels to have a Kirk/cowboy style of command. What is nice about Ezri in the novels is she has finally integrated and become confident.

That's good to know, Matthias! I heard she was captain now, they mentioned it breifly in the Voyager novels. I can't wait to see her in action.

Destiny and Zero Sum Game are the only ones where you see her in action. I was skeptical when I heard they made her captain but her character is well written in the center chair.

Ezri came to late. She had only one season to develop her character.


One thing nobody here seems to know is the reason why they replaced Jadzia. All the major actors had a six year contract to start with. They all prolonged it for the last season. Terry Farell did not.

She called Paramount's bluff and got a deal to be on "Becker" starting the biggest name in comedy Ted Danson at the time.  It was more of a career move.


The producers didn't handle it well and they savaged much of season seven trying to force in a new character at the expense of the story arc.

Also, they did not have very many good Bashir episodes in 7 because of Ezri.

Jadzia -  She was The MAN... and such a turn on too.

Ezri was just annoying.

Perhaps. But perhaps that was kind of the point. Ezri's situation well reflected the awkwardness of adolescence as one matures and has to reconcile the worlds of childhood and adulthood. She expressed many of the feelings and frustrations we felt at that stage. Just as Ezri was the awkward teenager, Seven was the aggressive know-it-all teenager. How did you not feel for those characters as you remember those times or were going through them as I was at the time?

True, but I think it didn't fit in with the other events of season seven. There is a war going on.

Well, Terri Ferrell wanted out, it made for an interesting contrast, and Worf needed to learn his lesson about sleeping with his councilor.

 It is about bringing Jadzia Dax back to life. There is a guardian and Ziranne (Jadzia's sister) from the planet Trill plans to duplicate all the sympionts and bringing dead hosts back to life and have enough for all the Trills. In which would bring chaos. The enterprise is sent to Trill to prevent that from happening. Ezri Dax is kidnapped fron the Defiant. The Dax sympiont is duplicated. Jadzia is brought back to life.
