I'm carrying over a conversation started in the ENT about the DS9/TNG crossover comic Divided We Fall, which focused on the Trills. So SPOILERS for Divided We Fall Odan started out as the same blonde female host, they just drew her with spots instead of the funny forehead. By the end of the comic though the female host is dead and Odan has a new male host, and the comic ends with a good bye kiss from the male host and Beverly the moment she first sees the newly joined Trill. Overall it's a good story, but given the gay subtext, if you can even call it subtext, I think it's kind of iffy on what I think of killing the female host and getting a hetero kiss at the end. It's also kind of interesting how it seems that Beverly loves the symbiote and not specificaly the hosts. It does make me re-evaluate what we see of joined Trill romances. Did Worf, and Julian, love Jadzia/Ezri or Dax? Given the carry over of feelings between that, and the forbidden relationship with Dax and Khan, that does imply if not just outright establish that love with a joined Trill can carry over to another host. Which does make me think how interesting it could've been if Dax's new host had been a male instead of Ezri. I like Ezri, don't get me wrong, and the show needed another female lead with Jadzia gone, I just think there's an interesting story there that wasn't told. Mild SPOILERS for the Mirror Universe novels On a side note, I can't remember where this was discussed, but there has been debate over the status of the Dax symbiote in the Mirror Universe. I thought that Jadzia in the MU was still joined with Dax, but others say she wasn't. I thought that Sisko still called her Dax. I read a Memory Beta article on the MU Dax, only skimming thru the parts covering books I haven't read to limit too much spoiling, and it says that Curzon outlived Jadzia and that Jadzia never had the Dax symbiote. Any thoughts or info on that?
