Ah, but in "Sands and Symbols" (or whatever it is, the 2nd episode of the 7th season), Sisko says that Benny was a false vision sent by the Pah Wraiths. One could argue that "Far Beyond the Stars" was also a false vision sent by the Pah Wraiths to distract the Emissary.

Yes, but not on DS9. I should've been more specific, though -- I did want characters unique to DS9.

You WERE specific: "1. Name two characters who are mentioned by DS9 cast members, yet have never been seen in any episode of any series, nor ever portrayed by actors."

I tend to discount "Far Beyond the Stars" from continuity even moreso than "Threshold" (VOY). Because it was dumb.

And who mentioned DeSoto on DS9... Dax? I remember he was Riker's former CO and got mentioned a few times on TNG.

"Far Beyond the Stars" is one of the best hours of television ever, diminished somewhat by returning to the concept in "Sands and Symbols."

And also by the fact that this random sci-fi writer would write about a pretty boring space station in the middle of nowhere as opposed to - ya know - a ship where interesting stuff happens.

And DeSoto was mentioned by Nog with the thing about the desks in "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River" but I could've sworn he was mentioned more than that on DS9.

"Asexual" just means he reproduces all by himself. The use of "he" or "him" could simply be a convention in English, due to the fact that "it" is generally perceived as insulting when used to refer to a person.

Or, hey, if we really want to get theoretical... Maybe his species was once sexual and had two genders. Then they somehow evolved into asexuality, but retained their gender dimorphism. Who knows?

Another word is parturition. They recently discovered SHARKS that have reproduced like that... there were three females in a tank - there were never any males there and one became pregnant. It was the largest vertebrate example of such a thing happening. Supposedly they've found it in most "families" now except mammals.

Mammals are a class, not a family. Don't you know taxonomy?!

I have plenty of experience in biology. I bought a Tamagotchi in 1998... And... it's still alive.

LOL - I couldn't remember which level it was under - I only knew it was somewhere in the middle that is why I put families in inverted commas.

Ehh, you mean quotation marks?

I read about that shark thing. They did a DNA analysis on the baby and found it to be contain only DNA from the mother. Kind of weird that something like that that's never been seen before could just "happen" out of the blue.

Maybe the shark was conceived by the midichlorians.
