Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Let He Who Is Without Sin...” (part 7 of 7)
Cut to another random interior on Risa. Bashir and Quark and Dax are reclining together. Bashir says he understands how Worf feels, because Dax is so hard to figure out, what with the many centuries of gender-swapping and everything. Then Quark and Bashir talk for a moment or two about how this is kind of totally hot, and then Dax gets angry that they’re “talking about [her] like [she’s] not here,” even though they only said maybe one or two sentences about her in the third person just now.
So Bashir turns to her and is like, okay, “you’re too much work”, and I do not doubt for a second that Jadzia Dax is one high-maintenance woman. And right here and now, just for you, a list of all the women on Deep Space Nine, in order of highest maintenance to lowest maintenance: Kira Nerys, Jadzia Dax, Leeta, Tora Ziyal, Keiko O’Brien. I put Kira at the top because of all that ex-terrorist freedom fighter religious passion, I mean, I think you have to be a priest before she’ll even talk to you. And I put Keiko O’Brien last because she’s just an all-around cool chick in every possible way. And yes, at this rate, you can expect my first Voyager recap in late 2017.
