The Trill (or Trills) is the name of a humanoid species native to the planet Trill. A small percentage of the Trill population co-exists with a sentient symbiotic organism known as a symbiont inside their bodies. The resulting joined Trills have personalities which are a synthesis of the two beings including the memories, and to some extent the personalities, of the previous hosts of the symbiont. This way, the joined being gains all the skills and occupations of the previous hosts. As late as 2367, the fact that some Trills exist as a joined symbiotic species was widely unknown, even to Federation scientists. ;x;

DAY 01: Favorite Female Character
The magnificent Jadzia Dax
Even though she had to cover up her spots, Jadzia Dax in the TOS-era uniform = damned hot.
She’s also horny for Spock, which makes sense. She married a conflicted, reserved and complicated man who feels like an outsider among his own people.

Deep Space Nine, Season 2 Episode 17: “Playing God”
Avery Brooks directs Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax) and Susanna Thompson (Lenara Kahn) in DS9’s “Rejoined”. Note what’s really behind the walls of the USS Defiant!
These two scenes remind me of each other because they boldly illustrate how disparate TNG and DS9 were when it came to morality. In TNG, there was often a right answer, and the lines separating what was good and bad were often clear. While in DS9, the best thing to do was not always the “right” thing to do. DS9 gave you scenarios where you could not judge whether decisions were moral or immoral, leaving you conflicted because they did not fit in those boxes.
Also, I find these scenes are remarkable because they showed how the principles that Starfleet claimed it was built on went out the window when it itself was threatened.
