Re: Resigning from Starfleet
Something else to think about, Jadzia Dax was a host for two years when she came to DS9 as a Lt. So I guess she did not go through starfleet academy.
Kurzon was a negotiator for the Federation, apparently in Starfleet so I wonder how that works?
She states her age as 28 in Emissary. So if she got the symbiont at age 26, there's nothing to say she couldn't have gone to the Academy before she was joined. Plenty of time in the 18-26 period.
