Re: VOY S3: Worst Case Scenario

Unlike many of the other reviewers I didn't have a problem with the last act of the episode involving Seska. Nevertheless, the comments of other reviewers did get me thinking about how the episode might have ended if the last act had focused on the implications of finishing the holo- novel. It occurred to me that if the story had continued to focus on the completion of the holo- novel the writers could have used it as an opportunity for real character growth.
For instance, Tuvok was concerned about the possibility that his holo-novel might inflame the old conflict between Star Fleet and Maquis crew members. What if it turned out that Tuvok was right about the holo-novel having an emotional impact on the crew but not in the way that he thought. What if they finished the holo-novel with the Maquis taking over the ship. Then we could see how Chakotay might have handled situations and conflicts shown in past episodes differently than Janeway. What if it turned out that because Chakotay and the Maquis were not bound by Star Fleet ethics or the need to explore the unknown that he was able to get the voyager crew home. The episode could have ended with Janeway reflecting on this fact which might have had an influence on her choices in future episodes.

Re: DS9 S1: Dax

I think that while RD Geek raised an interesting point about there being a trill legal standard regarding the culpability of joined trills the lack of a standard can be explained. For instance, we learn in later episodes that the number of trills that can be joined is limited and that an unstable host would reject there symbiont. We also learn that people who want to be joined of subject to various test before being given a symbiont. It is therefore possible that people likely to commit crimes are screened out before being joined which mean that a joined trill committing a crime is without precedent.
On a different note I find the question about the nature of a joined trill to be interesting. While it is true that the episode never directly answers the question about whether or not a joined trill is responsible for the actions of previous host it does answer the question implicitly in that Jadzia was willing to risk her life to keep a promise made by Curzon.
