Star Trek DS9 - Jadzia Dax Mirror costume - Hero

7 is a lucky number by tradition and this is my 7th DS9 Mirror Universe costume.

A costume featured in the Star Trek: DS9 episodes “Through the Looking Glass” and “Shattered Mirror” for wear by Terry Farrel in her portrayal of “Jadzia Dax”. The costume is a blue suede jackets, one cream colored tank top. 

The garments features sewn in Deep Space Nine tags reading ‘Terry Farrel’. The jackets feature a degree of fading due to light and storage conditions.

Took me a while to manage to get it on Ebay as the first price was way too high, so after numerous emails with the seller, multiple offers over weeks,... they just removed from Ebay... to put it back a few days later at my last offer price. I bid... and won.

To be fair I got help from my friends at the Star Trek forums to know it was for sale and even got a nudge to go for it.

Sadly it isn't a full costume and the full costume was own at Backlot Props then sold to Abacus now liquidated. Hopefully it might still pop up for sale on Ebay in the future. If not I still have now a Terry Farrell (Hero) jacket and undershirt screenused in DS9 Mirror Universe.

Jadzia Dax was a Trill soldier of fortune who worked for the Terran Rebellion. In 2369, Jadzia was working as a mercenary captain of her own ship, the Rogue Star. A frequent client of hers was Annika Hansen, who took passage on the Rogue Star on several missions for the Obsidian Order, although her ties to the Order were unknown to Jadzia. A staple of Jadzia's outfit at this time was a curved blade that she always had at her waist. (ST novel: Dark Passions, Book One) By 2371, she was romantically involved with Benjamin Sisko. After his "death", she became involved with Julian Bashir. In 2371, Chakotay described her as having "good looks but no personality." (VOY - Mirror Universe novel: The Mirror-Scaled Serpent)

When it appeared that her lover had returned from the dead in mid-2371, Jadzia immediately greeted Sisko with a kiss to show how glad she was that he was alive...

 ... quickly followed by a slap to the face for making her think he was dead. She didn't realize at the time that the man she thought was her lover was in fact Benjamin Sisko from another universe. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass") In 2372, when Sisko returned to the mirror universe, Jadzia immediately pulled a knife on him, warning him to never touch her again. Jadzia later joined her new lover, Bashir, on a mission to delay the Alliance's attack on the rebel-occupied Terok Nor. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror") Jadzia was killed in 2375 in a skirmish with Alliance troops. Julian Bashir took the loss very hard, leaving Bashir even more irritable and unreasonable. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak"). Later that year, Bashir was given command of a starship, which he named the Jadzia. (DS9 - Mirror Universe novel: Saturn's Children)
