Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

Basically, Jadzia Dax was not Jadzia so much as she was Dax. As someone pointed out a few pages back, she jumps throu gh so many personalities and granted Terry Ferrel pulls them off pretty well, saving the charcater from being a complete bust....but so much of t hat was supposedly attributed to the symbiot, not the woman named Jadzia.

Ezri, I found far more interesting because the crew DIDN'T bring up her past lives with her, the obvious exception being Worf. I would agree that bringing a brand new character like this was not the best idea; if anything, TIIC should've repla ced Jadzia sooner.
Very interesting observations! But even though I can't argue with that, I still have a softer spot in my heart for Jadzia than Ezri. At least I don't hate Ezri now like I did the first time though.
I'm not sure how well this holds. Of the thirteen episodes focused on the character of Jadzia, only six were focused on the Trill experience. None came after Rejoined. On the other hand, all three Ezri episodes were Trill episodes. Half as many in only a fraction of the time (although given how badly botched the original concept of Prodigal Daughter was, there should only have been two episodes. ) Jadzia was the old soul, perfectly, almost seemlessly integrated. Ezri was the new soul trying to figure out who she was or if her previous ego was even relevant to her new personality. Arguably , Jadzia could have used more of the latter. Instead, she became evermore just an old soul than someone with a complex personality.
