Re: Jadzia Dax, not used in Ds9 how she was supposed to be?

I vaguely remember an interview with one of the producers who said that dax was originally conceived as the wise, old mentor type like Yoda (or Spock in TWOK) but after killing off Jadzia and bringing in Ezri they realized that the character of Dax was more interesting to portray as the confused host trying to adjust and incorporate the personalities of all the previous hosts and they wished that they had went that route in hindsight from the beginning.
And much of Jadzia's more interesting character development actually fell into this category, with stories such as Equillibrium and Facets.
