Gender never seems to be much of an issue with the Trills-
I would love to see the expression on Work's face though...

It wouldn't be Ezri Dax, but a totally different Dax. I would imagine for Worf and Bashir, he would be definitive proof that Jadzia was truly gone and perhaps even easier to accept, IMO.

Having Dax continue to be female was too easy.

If the new Dax had been a young man who continued to have romantic feelings towards Worf would have made for a whole new interesting story line on the show. The character of Erza was good, but TPTB were taking no chances with her gender.

Bashir already had his bromance with O'Brien, and a dominance game thing with leather clad Sloan, so the male Dax would have been right up his alley.

At first, I almost wished the next Dax had been a dude. Since it was Ezri, i think I disliked her just because I kept thinking she compared unfavorably as a replacement for Jadzia. And sure, she's supposed to be the next Dax, not just a replacement, but as a viewer, I think the transition would've been easier for me.

As for the actual characters, I think Worf would've had an easier time. Since Worf likes women, he'd be less weird and more accepting that it was a different person. On the other hand, looking back at the Jadzia lesbian kiss part, I wonder if a male Dax would have been attracted to Worf, and how awkward that would have been. ^_^

And I still don't understand why the Trills are so terrified of expressing feelings toward their old host's partners, when Ezri didn't even seem to care. Not talking about that one time on some other planet, but I mean, they briefly seemed to be considering a relationship. Wouldn't somebody from Trill show up and exile her or something? Or maybe they just don't give the symbiont to anyone else. I don't remember now.

I could see Quark and Bashir hitting him up for intimate details on Jadzia... only to have Worf kick all three of their butts. :p

Would of been more interesting. Although, I think Worf would have the most issue with it for a while, then drank a gallon of prune juice and get over himself.

Well, the prune juice would've helped him get a lot of his system.

I think they went with a female Dax more because of the male:female ratio on the show than because of creative cowardice.

But it would have been cool to have a male Dax. Sisko re-discovering the things he used to do with Curzon, her 'suitors' feeling super-awkward about it as he tried to hang out with them as friends, then when they finally get over the awkwardness casually mentioning something intimate between them. A lot of creative possibilities there.
