Episode propaganda

Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell) is instructed to assess Arjin (Geoffrey Blake), a Trill initiate who is hoping to be joined in symbiosis. Meanwhile, O'Brien (Colm Meaney) is chasing Cardassian voles loose on the station and causing damage. Complicating everything is the discovery of some subspace mass and the possibility that it may be a universe in its own right...

Intelligence report

A look at the Trill culture and Jadzia's personality that isn't quite enough to fill out an episode so they added the subspace mass to jazz things up and the voles for a few quick laughs. Definitely not one of the better episodes, although you do get an insight into being joined. But that's about all you get. Very disjointed (no pun intended).
