So Rush Limborg's thread about Dax's previous host got me thinking about who the next host will be. Whatever happens to Ezri, she won't be around forever. So far we've had... A somewhat grandmotherly politician (Lela) A nervous, socially inept but brilliant engineer (Tobin) A hyper, emotional Olympic gymnast (Emony) Another motherly politician (Audrid) A carefree pilot (Torias) A psychopathic murderer/musician (Joran) A Klingon loving, heavy partying, womanizing, stubborn, opinionated Ambassador (Curzon) A Klingon party girl scientist (Jadzia) And a...an Ezri, however you'd describe her. So what do you think the next one will be like? I'm picturing Halikan Dax, a male host, intelligent, tough but reserved. Doesn't like Klingons for once, having grown tired of them after being around them for parts of three lifetimes. He's the tenth host and Dax isn't sure he wants to live on indefinitely, so he has a more fatalistic view of life than the others, maybe Halikan subconsciously tries to get himself in trouble/hurt/killed. He isn't sure what he wants to do with his life and leaves Starfleet to get in touch with all the personalities he's been before. But that's just my idea, what do you guys think? The name came out of thin air, by the way. I'd love to hear more ideas.
