By Claudio Finazzi / 13 July 2021 He played the role of Jadzia Dax for 6 seasons within the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series, later abandoning it due to the non-renewal of the contract caused by disagreements with the production. Let's talk about Terry Farrell the magnificent Trill who fascinated us during the course of the series. Now the actress says she is ready to return to reinterpret the role of her in a new Star Trek series. Terry Farrell plays Jadzia Dax Terry Farrell plays Jadzia Dax during the Meridian episode These are obviously the statements of her during a recent panel, the GalaxyCon, where some actors of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine were involved.
During this Panel Online a fan asked the performers of the series if they would like to return to their old roles in one of the current Star Trek series through a cameo. Terry Farrell didn't hesitate to answer, as well as adding a joke about her character's death: Of course yes! Just being alive again would be fun!

As part of the 2019 documentary What We Left Behind, Farrell explained the reason that led her to leave the series "prematurely". The actress's contract lasted until Season 6. The actress at that time was starting to be tired, having to get up at 4 every morning for her make-up had become exhausting for her. She therefore asked during the renewal for the possibility of having a less recurring role within the seventh season, even in the face of a lower Cachet than that agreed for the previous seasons. This request was not well received by the top of the series, much less by the executive producer of the time Rick Berman. Instead, the production offered Farrell a "take it or leave it" contract that reluctantly led the actress to abandon her role. The actress claimed that Berman came up with a phrase at the time, "If you weren't here, you'd be working in a department store."
All this leads to cracking relations with the production that decided to kill the character of Jadzia to be replaced by Ezri Dax, a role played by Nicole de Boer also present within the GalaxyCon Panel. How could Jadzia Dax return in one of the new Star Trek series? Many years have now passed since the closing of the Deep Space Nine series and she has passed water under the bridge. None of the current leaders at the head of the franchise is part of that old Crew of the 90s and for this reason Farrell finds "free field" for a possible return of her. Thanks to science fiction, anything can happen and for the actress you can open up multiple ways to eventually return to the current series in production. In Deep Space Nine it is shown how the Trills can interact with former guests, something also seen recently in the third season of Star Trek: Discovery. This could lead not only to the return of Farrell as Jadzia, but to the co-appearance of the character of Ezri from de Boer, who said she was excited about the possibility that this could happen.
