Jadzia Dax is from a joined species called the Trill. She consists of a humanoid host and a molluscoid symbiont. While the host lives a typical humanoid lifetime, the symbiont is transplanted from one host to another, carrying with it the memories of prior lives. Jadzia is the eighth joining for Dax. The prior hosts were Lela, Tobin, Emony, Audrid, Torias, Joran and Curzon. Curzon Dax was a Federation diplomat, and instrumental in negotiating a lasting peace treaty with the Klingon Empire. Jadzia Dax has a strong interest in Klingon culture and political affairs, no doubt thanks to Curzon’s experiences. Dax and Jadzia were joined in 2367. The joined Trill was assigned the rank of Lieutenant and stationed as science officer in 2369 on Deep Space Nine. In 2372, she was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
