(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 (in particular the [[PapaWolf father-son]] dynamic).

''Star Trek: Deep Space Nine'' is the second of the "next generation" of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' shows, airing alongside [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] for the initial three years, then concurrently with UPN's ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' for the remaining four. 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 an influence (most notably the [[PapaWolf father-son]] dynamic).

[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E10ChainOfCommand When we last left Next Gen]], the remote world of Bajor had just booted out her occupiers, the Cardassians (the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens evil alien race]] of the month), 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 relocated 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 [[FantasyAxisOfEvil less cuddly]] counterpart to the United Federation of Planets.

What made ''[=DS9=]'' so unusual in Trekdom was that every action had consequences. Part of this is because the producers became more and more comfortable altering Creator/GeneRoddenberry's spotless, optimistic future: nobody on Bajor particularly got along with each other and, unlike the ship-based series, the crew couldn't just '[[ButNowIMustGo jump to warp]]' and leave the Problem of the Week behind. The writers employed {{Story Arc}}s much more extensively than in other ''Treks'' (including a full MythArc dealing with the Dominion), showing it had now earned the "SpaceOpera" genre tag that it had been given. Perhaps most importantly, by shifting the focus from TNG's bold explorers to [=DS9's=] [[WestCoastTeam overworked jarheads]], the writers were able to scrutinize the Federation as it appears to outsiders: a noble organization that still has problems with bureaucracy and some [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans skeletons in its closet]].

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}} subversion]] 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".
