A health food. Jadzia Dax has long sworn by the benefits of azna, dating back to at least when Curzon was the Dax host. Jadzia preferred azna prepared steamed, claiming it lenghthened a lifespan.

An extremely rich dessert, white with a creme on top, which many residents of Deep Space 9 have a weakness for. Disappointed with the varieties he found on Earth during the trip back to get the Defiant,...
