Their one of the less well defined aspects of the setting, if you ask me. Any ideas how the Symbionts reproduce, or how long a symbiont can live for? Oh heres a question in the episode Dax... I noticed a lot of issues, youd think The judge would have set some kind of precedent either way... even if it wasnt pertinent, simply to have their name attached to a precedent setting case. That aside... something I wondered a lot about... if the extradition request had been refused without the kind of evidence that wound up being found... would Dax have wound up in effective Isolation on Bajor.
