Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was a US science-fiction show created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller for CBS. It was a spin off of the 1960s series Star Trek and ran for seven seasons.

Series summaryEdit

Starfleet Captain Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) is sent to oversee space station Deep Space Nine, formerly owned by the brutal Cardassian race and used - among other things - to keep an eye on the planet Bajor, which the Cardassians oppressed. This tense political situation is made even more complicated by the presence of a wormhole next to the station, which leads to a distant part of space. Soon, Sisko and his allies - who include shape-shifting security officer Odo (René Auberjonois), chief medical officer Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig), chief science officer Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell), and chief engineer O'Brien (Colm Meaney) - find themselves facing a threat from beyond the wormhole, as well as potential invasion by the Cardassian Empire.

Westphall connections to Star Trek: Deep Space NineEdit

  • The first episode of Deep Space Nine features the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and later seasons have the Next Generation character Worf as a regular cast member.
  • Later episodes contain a recurring character Vic Fontaine, a holosuite character based upon an in-universe famous crooner and Las Vegas lounge singer from the 1960s. The "real" Vic Fontaine is mentioned on the series Vegas (2013) starring Dennis Quaid.
