Needs info on Odan's involvement with Beverly.--T smitts 22:44, 28 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Is the reassociation taboo really an issue regarding Beverly? While it's not a romantic relationship, certainly there's been no taboo against successive hosts of the Dax symbiont "reassociating" with Benjamin Sisko. In fact, it serves the purpose of joining to be able to experience persons and relationships from different perspectives. I think the reassociation taboo is only between joined Trill, so that they don't focus on each other to the exclusion of all else. --Emperorkalan 01:58, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
was this host's name mentioned on screen? I don't recall this, is it canon? --Captain Chris 06:57, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
- You mean, aside from the part where she says: "I am Kareel. I am to become host to Odan"? --Alan 07:04, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Nice, thanks for clearing that up. --Captain Chris 20:59, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
- It may be speculated that the relatively recent and short nature of the romance between Odan and Crusher made it an exception to the taboo of reassocation. However it is more likely that it is due to the fact that the idea of reassociation, and Trill society in general, was not truly developed until the Deep Space 9 episode "Rejoined".
- It is also possible that due to being so recently joined, Kareel was simply under the influence of Odan's previous host, whose feelings for Beverly Crusher were still quite prevalant.
Removed as speculation.--31dot 23:47, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
- It was actually the original Trill makeup, as seen also on Odan's male host. When they cast Terry Farrell as Jadzia Dax on DS9, they decided to change the make-up because they thought spots looked better on the actress.
