What type of alien is Lt. Jadzia Dax?

Lt. Jadzia Dax is a Trill. This unique "joined race" whose humanoid members have provided host bodies for small soft-bodied entities in a symbiotic relationship; Among the humanoid Trill joined species, apparently at least two races of hosts are used to house a symbiont: those of the ridged forehead and those like Jadzia with a narrow speckled band running along the hairline to the sides of the neck, then down along the body. If a host is weak, the personality of the symbiont will overwhelm it. Unless its current Joined Host objects, a prospective Host may request a specific symbiont.

The symbiont body is a foot-long purplish lump of cranial and exoskeletal tissue, some are susceptible to damage by transporter beam. Thousands of symbionts live on Trill.

Since the symbiont integrates each new host's personality with its own after joining, Trill relationships are often hard for single-unit species to deal with and sometimes don't survive the change.

The symbiont does carry memories of time shared with each of its hosts, and each new combination - aside from gender, height and weight - carries a different blood type, metabolism, nervous system, and brain wave pattern.

Only one Trill in ten is chosen to be joined to the "thousands" of symbionts, but those not joined still lead normal, productive lives. If the truth were known that half the population could be hosts, rather than the 1-in-1,000 ratio officially quoted and the reason behind the rigorous selection and training program, some at the Symbiosis Commission worry that the symbionts would be bartered as commodities.

A Trill's lineal or family name follows the given name, as is done on Earth, but a host drops his lineal name in favor of the symbiont's. Social role equality seems apparent among the population, at least in medicine, with doctors and nurses of both genders.

What is the best episode of Star Trek The Next Generation?

According to the votes of users at TV.com, the best Next Generation episode was "The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1", in which Captain Picard is assimilated by the Borg. "Part 2", ranks third, after the series finale "All Good Things..., Part 2".

My personal favorite is "Cause and Effect", in which the Enterprise is destroyed repeatedly while in a time loop. The clever direction (by Jonathan Frakes) of the repeated-yet-different scenes adds subtle humor to the high-concept plot.

Another good one is Q Who, when Q sends the Enterprise to Borg space.

What does Captain Kirk say at the beginning of Star Trek?

"Space: the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before."
If you're referring to the opening voiceover from the original series, he says:

Space... the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Her five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."

It got modified slightly in the movies so that it occasionally now refers to "her continuing mission" and usually ends with "no one" rather than "no man."

Which is better Star Wars or Star Trek?

Answer A: For Star Wars

I believe star Wars is better because it includes large battle stations (Death Star), telekinetic powers (the force) and laser swords (lightsabers)

Answer B: For Star Wars

I concur. Not only that the cinematic scope of star wars brings people back the basic questions of good and evil in life. While Star Trek tries to expound the most intricate problems then impose the writers views about what is right.

star wars is also better because star trek is a lame ass show from 1960sor 50s or 70s or i dont know that was realy fake and the new star trek movie(208-09) was realy sukish even gi joe(2009) was beter than star trek and some star wars movies except for revenge of the sith.

Answer C: For Star Wars

I also believe Star wars is way better than star trek, I mean come on people. Star Trek took years to reach its point while Stars Wars took 3 Movies (which were the best in mine point of view).

Answer D: For Star Wars

Star wars will never die. People short of money are just going to keep on making more and more new merchandise. The idea of Star Wars is so flexible that in the end we'll forget the main, original characters.

For Star Wars:

I have to admit, Star Trek has better technology that Star Wars, I mean - The Borg Cube vs the Death Star? Borg cube would easily win - but I believe Star Wars has a much better storyline and better character and planets - it's also more action packed and the merchandise in so much better. Also, when I argue with my Trekkie friend at school I always win (I just say "Right Ok, so your saying that just because Star Wars had a much larger box office praise that Star Trek, we have lightsabers, and there has been a religion inspired by Star Wars - Star Trek is still better, is it? No, I didn't think so).

Fans on both side have their points of view but the fact of the matter is Star Wars has more fans than Star Trek. Personally I think Star Wars is way better. PS: Star Wars rocks !

Answer A: For Star Trek

I believe you are wrong because with star trek there was more than just movies there were TV shows.

Answer B: For Star Trek

Star wars has been around for 33 years and is dead while Star Trek has been around for 44 years and is still going strong.

Answer C: For Star Trek

Star trek is better for only one reason; Empires and people in Star Wars are fighting all the time seeking to kill people, they use weapons of mass destruction, destroy planets, and all they know is war. There never seems to be a era of peace. Even if there is one, it is very short. the Republic/Empire/New Republic only care about killing people. I think that is crap to see death all the time from Star Wars. I WANT MY MONEY BACK. And no, im not a pacifist.

However, the star trek weapons are kind of suckish and so are the people in the 2200s- late 2330s, and at that point the Ferderation is weak to attacks from the Borg and other enemies with Kirk and those fools.

However, Picard, Worf, Riker, and the others are so much better and higher quality.

Year 2360- Onward

ONLY STAR TREK MOVIES ARE GOOD.

There is only one ship that I consider worthy.

Enterprise-NCC 1701-E

Year 2370-Onward

The only good Star Trek Movies are First Contact, Nemisis, Insurrection, Voyage Home, and Star trek in 2009.

This is what I say to Star wars People who want to argue.

"Resistance is Futile"

lol

I conclude that Star Trek is better than Star Wars by some, but if you are going to see either of the two, see only the movies, not the TV shows. Clone Wars Sucks.

Another answer:

Star Trek is obviously better because at least it's barely possible. Star Wars has magic spells that they call "the Force", which not only is silly, but they never use it right.

Every time I would see a fight between two Jedi or Sith or whatever, and they'd be using "the Force" to throw big stuff at each other. I'd be like, hello? - why not just squeeze his heart to a pulp with a lot less effort?

It's sad how otherwise good and decent scifi nerds get turned away from Star Trek, and seduced by the lame side of the genre that is Star Wars.

Answer from 11 year old

Star Wars? Star Trek? The cooler one is quite obviously Star Trek. There is a scientific explanation for everything. They even tell you why humanoids are dominant in the galaxy. Second, with only light speed capability, how does anyone in Star Wars get anywhere? It would take them 4 years just to get to the closest star besides our sun, Alpha Centauri. It only took Cochrane 286 days at only warp one! Another thing is that they have lasers in Star Wars which could never do anything to things like deuranium. Also, as a counter to answer A for Star Wars, Think of places in Star Trek Like DS9, Domin Nor and the Son'a Starbase. Subace Rifts! If you had a Daedulus Class (2153) versus the Death Star all it would take would be a photon torpedo or well-aimed phaser to blow the entire thing up. Lastly; Ocampans have telekinictic abilities
It Depends on your opinion. I like Star Trek better because they have actual science rules and thinking. I believe that the scriptwriter used some professors to add the physiology, and science. Star Wars, while it entertains just as great, it doesn't provide the science, thinking, and physiology. Overall, I kind of believe that starships like The U.S.S. Enterprise will exist in the 23rd century. But, I won't be able to know.

What species is Guinan?

Guinan (played by Whoopi Goldberg) is El-Aurian, a humanoid race of "listeners." Few El-Aurians have ever been seen on Star Trek. The first one other than Guinan to appear was the con-man Martus Mazur in the Deep Space Nine episode "Rivals". After that, the only other time we ever saw El-Aurians was in the 23rd century portion of the film Star Trek Generations, where we saw a number of them as refugees fleeing from the Borg's attack on their homeworld.

Why did Kirk wear yellow and Picard red?

In Kirk's time, command officers wore gold and operations officers (including security) wore red. Sometime during the following century (around the year 2353, to be precise), this was changed so that command officers wore red and operations officers wore gold. In both periods, science officers wore blue.

Why are there children aboard the starship enterprise?

I'm assuming that you mean the Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation (NCC1701-D)... Simply because it is the flagship of the United Federation of Planets and they wish to convey a representation of many of their ideals, including a curious yet peaceful nature with a drive to explore and learn. If the flagship were stuffed to the gills with weaponry and troops then that would most definitely be construed as hostile. Secondly, as missions often last years without returning to Earth it's an added benefit to the crew to be able to have their families with them even though there might be danger right around the next nebula.

An old tv show.
Star Trek is a series of many TV series and movies. It takes place hundreds of years into the future. The main point of all the TV episodes and movies is exploring new worlds and civilizations. There have been many TV series, including The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. Here I will explain The Original Series. In the 23rd century the starship Enterprise (registration NCC-1701), captained by James T. Kirk, explores the vast reaches of the galaxy. By Captain Kirk's side is Spock, part of an alien species known as Vulcans. Spock is Kirk's First Officer and best friend. Another friend of Kirk's is Leonard McCoy (also known as "Bones" or simply "McCoy"). McCoy is the Enterprise's doctor and another close friend of Kirk. In the third movie (The Search For Spock) the EnterpiseNCC-1701 is destroyed and is replaced by the EnterpriseNCC-1701-A.

This just BRIEFLY explains the Original Series (and the destruction of the Enterprise in the third movie.) As explained above, there are many other TV series' and movies about Star Trek. Original Series episodes can be found at the link below and includes all three seasons.
