This page seems unnecessary. Surely the Klingon posing as Tyler is Voq? - DS9 Forever (talk) 23:37, March 7, 2018 (UTC)

From what I gather from the article (I have not yet watched any of the relevant episode[s]) I surmise that this situation shows parallels to both "Tuvix" (a being created through the fusion of two separate individuals, plus a plant) or any joined Trill. And just like we do have separate pages for Tuvok, Neelix and at least a redlink for "Tuvix", as well as separate pages for symbionts and their joint forms, I think we should have separate pages for Tyler, Voq and this new creation (although I think the disambiguant "persona" would be most fitting, since it seems that Voq's body [altered to appear human] is its host, although I have no idea whether Voq's persona was fused with a copy of Tyler's to create this new one like like the physical DNA of Tyler seems to have been fused with Voq's body, or whether this new persona is entirely an artificial construct and Voq's original persona has merely been suppressed). On that note, the fact that information on Trill hosts before their joining is still being included on the pages of the joined individuals and not in separate pages is, to me, an oversight that sould be rectified. - Bell'Orso (talk) 06:40, March 8, 2018 (UTC)
Because the situation was crafted as a 'big reveal' on the show, the concrete information is lacking. However, the implication is that either physical pieces of the Human Tyler were grafted into Voq's body to make a composite being, or at the very least parts of his actual DNA were grafted into Voq. either way we have what was once two separate articles being consolidated into one.
It could still be argued that perhaps Human Tyler was already dead and the parts of his physicality used to alter Voq were cloned/reproduced somehow during the 'changing' process, and that the memories implanted were hypnoticallyimplanted and were not the 'real' memories of the 'real' Tyler -- but the simple fact remains that L'Rell pronounced Voq dead and the new 'composite' being is what lives on in his body.
This article makeup makes sense with the most interpretations of these facts -- captainmike Wiki-wordmark 13:44, March 8, 2018 (UTC)
