Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 01 E 08 Dax

This episode provides examples of:

  • Historical Hero Upgrade: General Ardelon Tandro is remembered as a martyr, whose death rallied his people to win their civil war. In reality, he was a traitor who was killed by rebels when he tried turning on his people.
  • Iron Lady: Madame Arbiter is a century old slab of iron.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: when Bashir is trying to help fight off Jadzia's hooded kidnappers, the hood of the person Bashir had been fighting slips down, to reveal that he's been fighting a woman. Bashir hesitates just long enough for her to beat the crap out of him and knock him unconscious. Later, Jadzia deliberately stonewalls Benjamin when he tries to get some answers out of her regarding the charges of murder and treason. Furious, Benjamin slams his fist into his hand and exclaims, "Dammit, if you were still a man!"
