Moderator: <Alpha2>: Terry, is it true that you will leave DS9 ?
TerryFarrell: Yes. My contract's finished.
Moderator: <Sydney>: Terry, what do you think of all the
attention the females on the ST series are getting?
TerryFarrell: I think it's wonderful. There are
so many strong characters in the Star Trek world. And I'm proud to have played one.
Moderator: <brain>: how does it feel being married on TV to Worf
TerryFarrell: Well, I'm going to try to enjoy
the next week of it. I'll miss him!
TerryFarrell: And it's a good thing we're
Moderator: <JM>: How are they going to handle your departure on
the show? Death or reassignment?
TerryFarrell: I don't know yet. They're in the
process of rewriting the script.
TerryFarrell: I requested not to die so I could
return at another time, but it's beyond my control.
Moderator: <TNT>: Will Dax be remaining with another actress or
written out totally?
TerryFarrell: I don't know.
Moderator: <Fenrir>: What will you do after Star Trek??????
TerryFarrell: Well, god willing, I'll get
another job very soon in television or on the big screen. Just crossing my fingers right
now, and thanking the Big Guy.
Moderator: <Alpha2>: what is your favourite episode of DS9 ?
TerryFarrell: "Rejoined" or my wedding
Moderator: <Doctor5>: what was the haredest thing you had to do
in star trek ?
TerryFarrell: To decide to honor my contract and
let it end at that.
Moderator: <Jester> to <Moderator>: what was it like
kissing Kira Nerys ? Was it enjoyable?
TerryFarrell: It was not an easy decision, but
that's the best one for my career at this time.
TerryFarrell: I never kissed Kira, but it's
interesting you should look at it that way...
Moderator: <Fenrir> : do you believe a bit in the ST
TerryFarrell: With help from God and the
collective and all of us doing our part to make it a possibility, yes, I do.
TerryFarrell: But we all have to take
responsibility for being the best human beings we can be, and treating each other like the
special creatures that we are.
Moderator: <Warp5>: was there anything in your personal life
that you have used as a basis for Curzon Dax's character?
TerryFarrell: I never played Curzon per se, and
thank God, because I've never been a man and I don't know how I'd go in that
Moderator: <Sisko>: Do you ever look yourself up on the 'net?
TerryFarrell: No. I haven't gotten that far in
my web searching. I think I'd be too afraid to see all the horrible things people say
Moderator: <Profan> : have you been a trekkie bevor playing
jadzia in ds9?
TerryFarrell: When I was in elementary school, I
was a fan of the original series.
TerryFarrell: I wouldn't consider myself a
trekkie, but I was a fan of the show.
Moderator: <nuhui>: Do you know how your character is to be
written out of the series? Any truth to the "Dax simbiant gets new host after Jadziah
TerryFarrell: I don't know. I would like to be
sent back to Trill, or maybe to the Federation on a separate mission so that I could come
back at another time. I don't know when that would be exactly - maybe for the finale of
the 7th season.
TerryFarrell: but I was told that they have to
do whatever's best for the show.
Moderator: <TNT>: How did you feel playing all of the different
incarnations of Dax?
TerryFarrell: When I got a chance to actually do
different things, I really enjoyed it very much.
Moderator: <Yoda13>: If you were given the oppertunity, would
you accept a place on the cast of a DS9 movie?
TerryFarrell: Well, show me a script and I'll

Moderator: <Sisko>: What would YOU like to see happen on the
TerryFarrell: To whom? Can you be more specific?
I only have one more episode left and I don't know what that's about yet, so I can't
Moderator: <Pentium>: What do you feel about Trills?
TerryFarrell: I don't know, they never really
explored it enough.
TerryFarrell: And I never really met my parents,
TerryFarrell: And everything's been so focused
on the Klingon history my character has, rather than the Trill history, that I don't
TerryFarrell: But we could make it up...
* TerryFarrell grins. *
Moderator: <Axquat>: If you had to be locked in a room for 2
days with 1 person in the cast of DS9, who would you pick?
TerryFarrell: Colm Meaney.
Moderator: <Alpha2>: Terry, was it hard for you to learn a bit
of the klingon language and the art of klingon fighting?
TerryFarrell: Because he makes me laugh and he's
intelligent, he's a really interesing person.
TerryFarrell: Oooh....yes and no.
TerryFarrell: Yes, because it's foreign. And no,
because it was fun to do.
Moderator: <Sybel>: When you were first given the part of Dax,
what did you think of the character?
TerryFarrell: I was intrigued and very excited
about the challenge.
Moderator: <Fenrir>: Are there parallels between Terry and
TerryFarrell: There are now.
* TerryFarrell smiles. *
Moderator: <Alpha2>: do you like the klingon way of living?
TerryFarrell: Oooh...it's a little too painful
for my tastes.
TerryFarrell: I mean, I like the passion, don't
get me wrong - but, ow!
* TerryFarrell laughs. *
Moderator: <Krondor>: for Farrell what was your most embarassing
event on the set?
TerryFarrell: Now why would I share that with
* TerryFarrell smiles. *
Moderator: <Sisko>: What's your favorite alien race?
TerryFarrell: Trill. Duh!
Moderator: <sansker>: What did you think of the klingon wedding
TerryFarrell: I was a little ticked off that my
family wasn't there. I know it was last minute, but it was like Worf's family and nobody
there for me.
TerryFarrell: And Worf's family was against me.
TerryFarrell: So I had to kick a little butt to
get him. And hey, he was mine to begin with!
TerryFarrell: What a head game!
TerryFarrell: Other than that, it was
fabulous...no presents, no ring, but I'm married and he's mine. Deanna Troi, ha ha ha -
can't touch him!
* TerryFarrell sings. *
TerryFarrell: Can't touch this!
Moderator: <IfStudent>: Have you ever been afraid of acting in a
special scene, and (if yes) which one was it?
TerryFarrell: I was scared to work with Faye
Dunaway. And I was right...I should've been scared, it was scary.
Moderator: <Sybel>: Do you think that perhaps Dax's past hosts
are in a way aspects of your own personality, or do you have some 'past hosts' of your own
to draw on?
TerryFarrell: Hmmm....well, Avery always asks me
"how many personalities I have in my head."
TerryFarrell: The world may never know...
Moderator: <Exocomb>: Did you get a chance to produce any of the
episodes on DS9?
TerryFarrell: That option doesn't come up to
produce for DS9, but maybe someday in my career I will produce. I would like that.
Moderator: <Elydaor>: Terry ... What are u planning for your
Moderator: We will be taking two more questions for Terry...
TerryFarrell: I'm reading for projects right
now. I've gotten close to a couple of things but they haven't worked out just yet. So I'm
feeling very positive and I really believe the best thing for me will come my way and
hopefully you'll all come see whatever that happens to be!
Moderator: <AVWebmaster>: Will DS9 keep it open for you to come
back as a guest star?
TerryFarrell: I don't know. I hope so. That
would be nice, because I'll miss all my friends.
TerryFarrell: Because I love working with them.
Moderator: Thank you so much Terry...any last words for your fans?
TerryFarrell: Thank you so much for all your
love and support. This has been the most incredible experience in my life to date. I may
need some time to work out the rest of my career, but I will miss you all and, God
willing, we will meet again.
TerryFarrell: Take care of each other and take
care of yourselves,
Moderator: <Fenrir>: Do you know that your smile can make every
man melt away, including klingon men?
TerryFarrell: and know that I will always
appreciate all that you've given me.
TerryFarrell: Onward and upward.
TerryFarrell: Thank you, I appreciate that!
TerryFarrell: I wish it was melting human men,
but that's cool...I'll take what I can get!
* TerryFarrell laughs heartily. *
Moderator: Thank you so much Terry...
