Re: How the hell is Vic Fontaine in the MU?

Cool. I'm planning to do a DS9 marathon soon-ish, so I can revive my memory of all the little details I've forgotten.
I checked out the MU and regular Jadzia and Ezri profiles on Memory Alpha (ST wiki) and MU Ezri definitely wasn't joined. The info on MU Jadzia was more vague. They don't list her as joined or unjoined, while other Trills are specified, but she still is listed with the name Jadzia Dax, while MU Ezri is listed with her original name.

Re: How the hell is Vic Fontaine in the MU?

In the Mirror Universe, Jadzia was joined because Sisko called her Dax when he first crossed over from the regular universe and she didn't correct him.

In the seventh season, its mentioned that mirror universe Jadzia was killed, which is why mirror universe Bashir was more pissed off than usual, because they had become closer after the mirror universe Sisko was killed and the regular universe Sisko wasn't around to fill in for him.

Re: How the hell is Vic Fontaine in the MU?

Then again, there's no proof that the "Dax" in the mirror Jadzia's name was the symbiont. It could simply be a last name. Perhaps she believed the symbiont to be dead, and chose its name for her last name to honor it?

Or maybe, like I said, she just didn't feel like correcting Sisko when he called her that. She didn't like him much at that point, anyway.

Re: How the hell is Vic Fontaine in the MU?

It seems overly complicated to assume that MU Jadzia didn't have the Dax symbiote when she had no reaction at being called Dax.
The intention seems to be that MU Jadzia was joined with Dax. It could've been interesting if they'd gone another way, such as having MU Curzon Dax still around.

Re: How the hell is Vic Fontaine in the MU?

My own feeling was that Vic Fontaine's appearance in the Mirror Universe is supposed to mean that it's more than just another alternate universe. Instead, the two universes are linked inexorably and they mimic each other in certain ways.

It would also explain why the exact same people (genetically, at least) are showing up, and being given the same names, hundreds of years after the point-of-divergence (somewhere around Enterprise or between than and the Original Series).

As in, Vic Fontaine exists in the Mirror Universe because he's being a meaningful part of the Regular Universe.

That's just speculation, of course. Reading this thread has, however, given me the strong desire to go back and watch those episodes on their own as some sort of mini-series.

Well, this is the MU, after all. People in that universe don't seem to like each other at all.

I'm not sure if this counts as proof, but the ST collectible card game card for Mirror Jadzia has text that says she's a joined trill, and her name is Jadzia Dax. I don't see any proof or even a hint or suggestion that Mirror Jadzia wasn't joined with Dax.
