Welcome to our Rebinge of Star Trek DS9: Dax

DS9’s seventh episode, entitled Dax, gives us a little insight into Trill life. Something from Curzon Dax’s past comes back to haunt Jadzia when someone arrives at the station to hold her accountable for some major crimes. The visitor arrests Jadzia and tries to steal her away quietly, but our trusty crew catches them in the act and Jadzia must endure a formal Bajoran hearing to determine if she’ll have to stand trial for Curzon’s past.

Dax: Guilty or Innocent?

When Ilon Tandro (also known as Phoebe’s father-in-law) turns up with an extradition order, Jadzia suddenly clams up. This dude is throwing around claims of murder and wants Jadzia to pay for the crimes committed by Curzon Dax against Ilon’s father. Sisko knows none of it is true. Odo is pretty sure it’s all true. And Jadzia isn’t saying anything. Odo heads off to Klaestron to do a little investigating and he finds the dead guy’s widow…played by none other than the amazing Fionnula Flanagan!

Listen in to hear us discuss some more creeping by Julian, living with lifetimes of regret, talking through a curio cabinet, Data’s mom and oh yeah, singing poo. (Not a typo.)

What’s this rebinge thing?

    I must admit that I am obviously late to this series on the network but I’m excited to listen to it! 🙂

    I was recommended DS9 by a friend who had originally watched it live so like Kim I am fairly new to the show in general but unlike Kim I have completed it. I was told I would love Kira because she’s like space Xena and I feel that’s accurate. 🙂 I also enjoy Dax, until Worf is on the series and she basically becomes just a love interest sadly, and the fact the series has consequences to character choices! As someone who binged this series just last year let me say that fact alone is worth watching this series! The intrigue of character choices, the fact there are consequences for characters, Sisco being a loving dad and proud of it and enjoying art as well as baseball along with roguish Quark, and the series leaning more on its characters than action definitely makes me glad I was told to see this series and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on select episodes! 🙂

    I’m doing select episodes because of time but also because I just enjoy some more than others. 🙂

    Here are my thoughts about the “Dax” podcast episode…

    I don’t get Bashir as a stand in Kirk for this series at all; with the popularity of Kirk and Riker and I can see them wanting a playboy character but I have agree James if it was meant to be Bashir here they failed! To his credit, Julian is sometimes sweet but he can also be really sleazy at times too.

    I do wish you had talked more about the debate of is someone the host or past lives more because that’s a super interesting discussion! Maybe you’re saving this for the “Rejoined” episode in part because of events there? No spoilers for Kim, but James you know what I’m talking about. 🙂 Or even “Facets”, but yeah I was looking forward to a debate on that and sadly it felt like you kind skipped it. I know you later talk a bit more about it but I feel that could have been a whole minute discussion when talking about the trial portion and I just didn’t feel it was discussed enough.

    Do you have opinions on it you’d like to share here maybe? How much do you think the symbiote effects the host and how much of the host effects the symbiote? If the host is not as strong willed can another personality emerge or if the host does something incredibly memorable does it leave a lasting memory on the host? The Tril are an interesting race because of this and I wish the series had done more especially when X happens in the later part of the series, they touch on it some but not as much as they could have; again no spoilers for Kim. 🙂

    The format of the podcast is definitely different from most I’ve heard as here it feels like a recap of the episode scene by scene versus a discussion on what happened, see FTWD as an example on this network; honestly I’m not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand it is refreshing but on the other I am a listener who enjoys a good debate instead of a play by play recap. I don’t know if this format continues into later episodes of the podcast but I’ll just put my vote in for if you want to debate more and dissect moments more when you do season three and on that’s fine by me. 🙂

    Off to explore more episodes of Rebinge 9! 😁

      Hello Aaron,

      Thanks for the feedback! We really appreciate hearing what others have to say about the episodes of the show and of the podcast. Just to let you know, we do discuss/debate more about the symbiont relationship to the host in season 2, episode 4: Invasive Procedures. And I’m guessing we will continue to discuss it over time.

      Additionally, to let you know we start reducing the detailed scene descriptions in season 2, episode 9 Second Sight. Although sometimes the episodes are duds and there isn’t much to talk about, we do think this will give us more time for debates and discussions. So thanks for the feedback and we sincerely hope you enjoy the new format and keep listening.

      Kim & James
