Watch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
- 7 Seasons
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was the third TV series in the Star Trek franchise and was different from the first two in that it set on a space station rather than a star ship. The show featured more complicated, longer story lines than those seen on most other shows. It also had a well recognized cast featuring names like stage great Avery Brooks, the young Alexander Siddig, and veteran Star Trek actor Michael Dorn. The basic premise of the show was a space station called Deep Space Nine, which initially orbited the war-torn planet Bajor. However, with the discovery of a stable wormhole, the station was moved. It was then the major stopping place for travelers using the wormhole between Deep Space Nine in the Alpha Quadrant and the Gamma Quadrant where the wormhole led to on the other side. This was the story line which ran throughout the entire series and was the key element in driving the plot of the Dominion War, which was featured in the later seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. As a largely episodic television series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had a rather large cast of both regular characters as well as very important and often featured secondary characters. The cast main cast remained mostly the same but gained Michael Dorn as Worf in the fourth season, while Terry Farrell, who played Jadzia Dax, left at the end of the season six opening. This opened the way for Nicole de Boer to be added to the cast as Ezri Dax in the show's seventh and final season. Most commonly seen of the secondary characters was Morn, who appeared in the bar for 91 episodes of the show yet never said a word. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was produced by Paramount Television and was not seen on any regular network. It was aired strictly in syndication on TV stations across the country and internationally.
