Re: Torias Dax in the new Star Trek movies?

I think 1000 is an exaggeration. Even towards the end DS9 still had 3 or 4 million viewers a week, and at the beginning it had near-TNG ratings. Most Trek fans are aware that DS9 had a character named Dax who had previous hosts, one of which was alive in Kirk's time.

Heck, if it was a female host at the time, wonderful, they can have a romantic encounter at a bar.

Seriously. I don't know, and I don't care.
The more they pack the movie with obscure references, the more viable the franchise!

Re: Torias Dax in the new Star Trek movies?

It is theoretically possible that a Dax host could appear in the film. It doesn't have to be Torias, of course. The branching-off of the alternate timeline makes all bets off. Torias, the host, may never be born. (I'm guessing he was fairly young when joined, so he has probably not been born as of 2233) Dax may exist within someone who is entirely new. Dax may even be dead.

Re: Torias Dax in the new Star Trek movies?

Wasn't there a Dax on the Enterprise STVI, which caused lots of fan speculation as to whether they were a former DS9 Dax host or not?

^There was indeed, but they looked absolutely nothing like any Trill we've met before. Couldn't even wear gravity boots!

Re: Torias Dax in the new Star Trek movies?

They could have a minor character in the film named Torias Dax and make no big deal about the reference. The fans would get the reference and the non fan will basically ignore this minor character. Lots of references in ST 2009 were for fans and the general audience were unaware it. I think that's called an easter Egg.
