Re: Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions review thread (spoiler
No. Curzon always had the Dax symbiont. Jadzia never did. As for why she might still have the surname "Dax" in the Mirror Universe, if I really must retcon it for you, I will. Pretend that after the forced disappearance of Curzon Dax (who was quite a celebrity in the Terran Empire and among his people) and the genocide of the symbionts by Captain Saavik (in
The Sorrows of Empire
), that some members of Trill society adopted symbiont names as new family names in remembrance of the dead and in protest of the actions of the Empire. Consequently, Mirror-Jadzia's family name was "Dax" despite her lack of a symbiont.
That should put this question to rest.
