Re: The Host and Continuity

To the contrary, I think DS9 dropped the ball in not being even more innovative and contrarian with its approach of what "Trill" means. The no-transporting thing was an obvious untruth and obfuscation in "The Host" already, and no obstacle even at the conclusion of the episode - and the TNG piece also laid the groundwork for there being an infinite number of potential host species. The spots were fine for Jadzia Dax, but the stories would have benefited from our heroes never knowing which face would go with a tummy that held a Trill. The concept of a "host species" was the unnecessary one, and rather uninteresting in the end.
