Background informationEdit

  • Susan Wright commented: "Marco [Palmieri] picked me to Torias Dax - and I was thrilled. Torias is the backstory to 'the kiss' when Jadzia kisses Lenara Kahn on DS9. Very hot! I wanted to capture the bond and passion between Torias and Nilani Kahn that tempted both Jadzia and Lenara to give up everything for their [symbionts'] former love". ("Thrilling Trill: The Lives of Dax", Star Trek: Communicator issue 126)
