'''''Star Trek: Deep Space Nine''''' is the second of the "next generation" of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' shows, airing after [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] for its first three years, then concurrently (some might say "[[DuelingShows competitively]]") with UPN's ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' for the rest of its run. Set on an orbital {{space station}}, [=DS9=] traded the WagonTrainToTheStars premise of past (and future) ''Treks'' for "[[SpaceWestern Fort Apache in Space]]".

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 its ship-based sister 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 focus to garrison troops [[WestCoastTeam toiling over a border planet]], [=DS9=] finally allowed writers to scrutinize the Federation as it appears to its neighbors: a noble organization that still has problems with bureaucracy and some [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans skeletons in its closet]].

Another factor was the sheer number of recurring characters. While all ''Trek'' shows have large casts, [=DS9=] is the only one that qualifies for LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. Consequently, the show was overrun with {{Fake Guest Star}}s, Andrew Robinson's seven-year stint as Garak standing out in particular. This was enabled, again, by [=DS9=] being a fixed location.

When we last left ''Next Gen'', the remote world of Bajor had just booted out its 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 episode, a unique [[SwirlyEnergyThingy stable]] [[OurWormholesAreDifferent wormhole]] leading to the uncharted Gamma Quadrant of the galaxy was discovered. Instantly, Bajor was transformed from a [[NothingExcitingEverHappensHere rustic backwater]] into the most valuable piece of real estate in the Alpha Quadrant, and the station was relocated to police its 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.
