Sufficiently tough

Nicole de Boer, forty-three today, might be best known for her six-year stint as Sarah Bannerman on the USA network series The Dead Zone, though I remembered her better as Ezri Dax, ninth host to the Dax symbiont on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, following Jadzia Dax’s death at the hands of Gul Dukat of the Kardashians Cardassians.

This is apparently a publicity still for the Syfy film Metal Tornado (2011), which is about, um, a metal tornado.

Ezri Dax, at the end of DS9, found herself in a relationship with Dr. Bashir. I’d like to think that worked out, given the problems she had on the station.

    Last time I saw her character in one of the Trek novels, she was captain of her own ship. She and Bashir had been together, but weren’t anymore.

    Bashir has more recently gotten mixed up with Section 31 and one of the formerly damaged genetically enhanced people he worked with in one or two episodes of DS9. She has been playing on his feelings to draw him in with S31.

    I used to read a lot of those, but lately I’m wanting to see stories from the reboot timeline.

    He’s more efficient than I am: I have to rely on half-remembered stuff and then verify it elsewhere.
