Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate 49195.5: A Trill science team arrives on Deep Space 9 to conduct field tests on experimental techniques for creating artificial wormholes. The leader of the team is Dr. Lenara Kahn, a joined Trill whose symbiont was once borne by the wife of one of Dax’s former hosts, Torias. Trill society has a strict taboo against “reassociation” with past lovers, for which the penalty is exile – meaning that both symbionts will die with their current hosts. Therefore Dax and Lenara must be careful about interacting…but despite their best efforts they find themselves reawakening old emotional ties. What will Dax risk in order to be with her former love?
