Sins of Curzon

Story: Dax
Written By: D. C. Fontana and Peter Allan Fields
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1993

"Dax" is unfortunate in that is the first chance we are really given to explore the character of Dax, and she barely says anything the whole episode, and it ends up focusing more on Sisko. Sisko’s the star, there are going to be plenty of plots about him, but for some reason they just didn’t give Terry Farrell the chance to really shine in this one.
The plot is interesting, and the issues about Trills it brings up are fascinating for sure, but really the episode just didn’t win in my opinion, because the episode didn’t focus its characters in the right way. Shame.
