Ahaha, unfortunately you’ll have to wait!
I haven’t met the Vorta yet, I’m on season 2 episode 10, and I can only watch more when my friend who has the dvds has a bit of time free to entertain me. XD
Without having proper context for them, I can’t really say what they’d look like. I could tell you that my initial immediate mental image was manta rays. Whether I will eventually redesign them that way is a completely different thing. I need to wait until I have proper context. :D
I also haven’t met Joran Dax yet! XD
But I can say that I recently watched the season 2 episode Invasive Procedures which…
Basically all of my redesigns were based on information from season 1 of DS9, and from TNG. Invasive Procedures gave me a lot to think about in terms of the symbiont. That episode was really fucking scary to me. The moment when I realised that Dax either didn’t have the power to insist on going back to Jadzia, or genuinely now considered her to be beyond useful, that was really sickening actually.
Which I realise is partly because I was reading the Trill in the same way that TNG presented them, and partly because I was projecting human ideas onto a long-lived alien worm symbiont.
Er… I guess that isn’t actually very related to what you were saying at all. XD But I feel like there’s something terrifying about Dax under the surface, and it doesn’t matter what form they’re in, whether humanoid or worm - because life doesn’t really seem to mean the same thing to Dax as it does to me as a human.
Dax could be in a bunny rabbit, and if they said the same things as they did in Invasive Procedures, I’d honestly feel just as terrified.
