For this episode, we watched Star Trek: Deep Space Nine 4x06, "Rejoined," in which Jadzia Dax meets and contemplates rekindling a relationship with the new (female) host of one of her symbiont's previous host's wife's symbiont. We start talking about the gayest Star Trek episode before the new millennium and veer hard off course into a consideration of immortality, consciousness, and the metaphysics of transporter and robot technologies.
