[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E10ChainOfCommand When we last left Next Gen]], the remote world of Bajor had just booted out its [[WeWilluseManualLaborInTheFuture occupiers]] through a war of attrition and a fair amount of terrorism. With the planet spiraling into anarchy, Starfleet sent a platoon to the former gulag ([[TradingBarsForStripes rechristened]] Deep Space 9) to lend the Bajorans a hand. In the pilot, a unique stable [[OurWormholesAreDifferent wormhole]] leading to an uncharted quadrant of space is discovered. Instantly, Bajor is transformed from a [[NothingExcitingEverHappensHere rustic backwater]] into the most valuable piece of real estate in the galaxy, and [=DS9=] is assigned to monitor the wormhole's traffic. The fixed base allowed the show to delve deeply into the politics of the ''Star Trek'' universe, but the appearance of the wormhole also caught the attention of the Dominion, a [[TheEmpire less cuddly]] counterpart to the United Federation of Planets.

In 2017, Ira Steven Behr and Adam Nimoy announced they were crowdfunding a documentary on the series, ''[[https://ds9documentary.com/about/ What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]]''. In addition to bringing back most of the major actors, the film is to look at ''[=DS9=]'''s cultural impact, particularly its post-wrap rise in popularity in syndication and streaming, and will feature Behr getting his writers' room together to plot a "what if" season 8.



Related works in the Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse include the ''Literature/TerokNor'' trilogy, which chronicles the Occupation of Bajor and features many of the Bajoran and Cardassian characters, and the ''Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch'' continuation series.

''Deep Space Nine'' is very frequently compared to ''Series/BabylonFive'', the ''[[DuelingWorks other]]'' 90's cult television show set on a space station. Indeed, there were frequent accusations that the two shows had ripped one another off; Creator/JMichaelStraczynski has implied that {{Creator/Paramount}} effectively stole an idea that he pitched to them and [[DolledUpInstallment stuck a Star Trek brand]] on it. Although [=DS9=]'s and [=B5=]'s pilots are similar, Season Four was the point at which the two began to dovetail.

''Star Trek: Deep Space Nine'' is the second of the "next generation" of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' shows, airing after ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' for three years, then alternating with UPN's ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' for the remaining four years. Set on an orbital {{space station}}, [=DS9=] traded the WagonTrainToTheStars premise for "[[SpaceWestern Fort Apache in Space]]". Ira Behr, the head writer, cited ''Series/TheRifleman'' as another influence (particularly the [[PapaWolf father-son]] dynamic).

While all ''Trek'' shows have large casts, [=DS9=] is the only one which qualifies for LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, by virtue of having a fixed location and a population surrounding it. Consequently, the show was overrun with {{Fake Guest Star}}s, Aron Eisenberg (Nog), Max Grodenchik (Rom) and Andrew Robinson (Garak) standing out in particular; all three characters appeared within the show's first two episodes and were heavily featured straight through to the series finale. This was a show that could do a BottleEpisode but have it star people who weren't even in the opening credits; [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS07E10ItsOnlyAPaperMoon one]] focused on Nog's recovery from a war injury with the help of a second recurring guest, and [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS06E12WhoMournsForMorn another]] another on the disappearance of an AscendedExtra who [[TheVoiceless never once had a line]]!

Consequently, the show was overrun with {{Fake Guest Star}}s, Aron Eisenberg (Nog, seven years) and Andrew Robinson (Garak, ''also'' seven years) standing out in particular. This was enabled, again, by [=DS9=] being a fixed location.

As a result of this kind of thing, the show tends to [[BrokenBase divide Trekkies quite a bit]]: people who like ''Trek'' for the [[AnAesop morality plays]] and spacefaring action may be turned off by the [[{{Soaperizing}} soapy melodrama]] and [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstruction]] of Roddenberry's utopian theme. On the other hand, those who ''do'' like [=DS9=] tend to prefer it over other ''Trek'' shows, forming a little subculture of their own in Trekkie fandom known as "Niners".

The show currently runs in... [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff British and Japanese TV]]. It used to run in Syndication on Creator/SpikeTV in the United States, but due to low ratings has not aired for some time. As of October 2011 the complete series is available on {{Creator/Netflix}} streaming in the United States. For that matter, it is also on Amazon Instant Video, Hulu and CBS All Access as well, so basically you're covered if you're signed up on any of these. Alongside all the other ''Trek'' shows and films, ''[=DS9=]'' was made available in its entirety in Netflix Europe in 2016.
