The Host

TZ Release Date


US Release Date





While mediating a dispute aboard the Enterprise, a Trill Ambassador falls for Doctor Crusher. But when the host dies, the symbiont must be transferred to Riker…

The Trekzone Review

Doctor Crusher did need some character exploration, unfortunatley it’s come in the form of The Host. I wish there was some cannonical explanation for the differences between these Trill and DS9’s Trill… how could Curzon not look like Odan? How could Curzon be a noteworthy Federation ambassador given the events of this episode?
