look at it that way...

creatures that we are.

Moderator- Warp5: was there anything in your personal life that you

Moderator- Sisko: Do you ever look yourself up on the 'net?

out of the series? Any truth to the "Dax simbiant gets new host after
Jadziah dies" rumor?
TerryFarrell: I don't know.  I would like to be sent back to Trill,
or maybe to the Federation on a separate mission so that I could come
back at another time.  I don't know when that would be exactly - maybe for
the finale of the 7th season.

the show.

Moderator- Pentium: What do you feel about Trills?
TerryFarrell: I don't know, they never really explored it enough.

my character has, rather than the Trill history, that I don't really
TerryFarrell: But we could make it up...
* TerryFarrell grins.

Moderator- Alpha2: Terry, was it hard for you to learn a bit of the
klingon language and the art of klingon fighting?
TerryFarrell: Because he makes me laugh and he's intelligent, he's a
really interesing person.

there for me.

TerryFarrell: So I had to kick a little butt to get him.  And hey, he
was mine to begin with!
