The Kahn Symbiont

Story: Rejoined
Written By: René Echevarria and Ronald D. Moore
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1995

A Trill science team comes to the station led by Lenora Kahn. Lenora is the current host of a symbiont who once inhabited Nilani, who was married to Torias Dax. It is taboo for current hosts to pick up relationships from former hosts…so it is a sticky issue for Jadzia. The Dax symbiont still has feelings for Kahn.
It is a solid episode, probably the first really good Trill episode that gives Ferrell something to do. It also has the first same-sex kiss in television history. It is a nice little milestone.
