*** The host lives at least 20 years before being joined to the symbiote and we don't know if that time is included in the 356 years

*** The host lives at least 20 years before being joined to the symbiote and we don't know if symbiote; that wouldn't count towards the age of the ''symbiote'' (who during that time is included would still be living in the 356 years a previous host)

** And on that note, why does Worf immediately abdicate the Chancellorship in favor of Martok? Aside from the respect he obviously has for his [[BloodBrothers blood brother]], he may also remember what happened back in "The Sword of Kahless." To wit: he and Kor discover the legendary bat'leth wielded by Kahless himself, and the idea of using the sword to claim leadership of the Klingon Empire drives Worf and Kor to try to kill each other. Having felt the temptation of power and being driven to attempted murder because of it, Worf may have decided that he's not truly worthy of leading the Empire, so he yields to someone whom he considers incorruptible.

** Further, something that would have successfully found out Changlings: Telepaths. The very first planet that the Dominion took out was Betazed. Presumably Vulcan's might have worked in a pinch (ha).

*** Felix is also the genius holoprogrammer who created the self-aware Vic Fontaine AI. So it begs the question whether Bashir asked him to create a Bond program that would put the test to even Bashir's augmented abilities.

Worth noting, Data trying to create a similarly challenging holodeck program is what lead to the creation of the TNG incarnation of Professor Moriarty.

** And this is set not long after the Organians promised to end both sides if they went to war.

** There was no agent, and no informant/supplier who needed the Biomemetic Gel. Garak made the bomb himself to destroy the shuttle himself to frame the Romulans, and might have used the doom gel to fake the crystal, if he didn't have one of his own to use. Remember, Garak played Sisko like a fiddle, up to and including using the "good men died to get this" by telling Sisko that all of his contacts died in hours, then later telling Sisko to use the same excuse on the Romulan Rep he tried to trick. Ergo, Garak had been planning for something like this all along, and had as much needed in place as he could get.

* In the episode "Children of Time" the colony's Odo [[spoiler:alters the Defiant's computer to prevent the ship from going back in time]]. And four episodes later the Dominion War begins. Had the other Odo not done what he did nobody would've put up the minefield to stop the Dominion from sending convoys through the wormhole, or gotten the Prophets to eliminate the giant Dominion fleet in "Sacrifice of Angels" or any of the other things DS9 officers did to win the war. He may have [[spoiler:caused Gaia to never exist]] but in so doing he inadvertently saved the Alpha Quadrant.

* When Odo meets another one of the 100 he has already infected his people with the disease, he melds with this new changeling who then goes on his merry way and is never heard from again...
** That's because it died in that very same episode.
** Well, it never existed. The timeline was collapsed. That's... different from dying, right?
** The changeling referenced in the first line is Laas from Season 7. The above two lines are referring to two different Season 5 episodes. Laas and the disease are a loose end on the show itself, though the Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch establishes that Laas made his way into the Great Link and got cured.

* Has anyone given thought to Dax's average life? In "you are cordially invited", Sisko States that the symbiote is 356. That was in early season 6, meaning Dax was AT MOST 357 when Jadzia died. This means that it went through 8 lifetimes in that time, making the life expectancy of a Dax host less than 45 years.
