More than the actresses, i missed the character. The Jadzia Dax that was like a father to Sisko, a fighter legend to Klingons, a gambling rival to Ferengis, and a good match for Worf, was replaced by a shy, scared, dizzy and weak Ezri (again, the actress that represented it did a good work, were the writers the ones… » 10/22/14 6:40pm Wednesday 6:40pm
