Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

Season 7 had way too much focus on Dax and Vic Fontaine as well.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

I like Ezri too, although I kinda wish they had developed a romance between her and Jake.

DS9 Chakotay would have been hardcore, maybe he would have gotten a second tattoo.

Vic Fontaine has to be my least favorite.
No argument there.

Plots like that belong in Voyager, not DS9.
We've got quite enough bad plots/characters, thanks . DS9 can keep theirs.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

Well she was tacked on, Farrel left the show for what she felt was greener pastures, and they had to get another female, and Ezri was a darn good addition. I liked Ezri better then Jazdia, who was nice to look at but changed personality every season or so. and I hate the Klingon Barbi type she became.

As for worse, it would be some of the elder ferengi. they started out ok, but went downhill fast.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

Don't be silly. Keiko was the most annoying character on DS9 by a long shot.

And, of course, they had to replace Jadza with another Dax. The symbiote thing had been set up years ago; how on Earth (or Bajor) do you resist an opportunity like that? It was like a gift from the writing gods (or Prophets).

And Ezri turned out to be very likeable and appeaing.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

As far as I'm concerned, Rom was the worst character. I didn't care for him at all, the way he was written or portrayed, and if I ever watch Deep Space 9 again, I'm likely to skip every single scene he's in.

Hmm. I suppose a polished turd is still just a turd.

I find it difficult to disagree with any of this, so I'm not going to!

Yeah. Even if they were somehow able to make his character more interesting, Beltran would still have the acting range of a plank of cedar.

That's unfair to cedar planks. I know some shakes who are true thespians. They've turned falling off the house into an art.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

I don't think she is the worst character but it wasn't well planned with the sudden departure of Terry Ferrell .The producers were trying to rush a character into the last year.They should have taken the charcter of Dax off screen rather do what they did.

Except, again, she was a Trill. When you've got an alien whose whole schtick is that they move from host to host, how do you not explore that if the opportunity presents itself?

It would be like not bothering to have Doctor Who regenerate . . . .

Plus, after six years of writing the same characters week after week, the writers were probably thrilled (Trilled?) to have a new toy to play with!

Luther Sloan was the absolute worst. The whole concept of a rogue outfit was quite a good one but they ruined it by having a clown front it.
Ban. I actually loved his character and him and Bashir's relationship. Also fit in with the series long infauation of Bashir's interest in spys (Garak).
