Deep Space 9
Sitting at the entrance of the Bajoran wormhole, Deep Space 9 (often abbreviated to DS9) is a space station located in the Bajor Sector of the Beta Ursae Sector Block. While it offically remains a Federation station under Starfleet control, citizens of the Klingon Empire do have access to Deep Space 9.
Deep Space 9 serves as one of the most important mission hubs, meeting points and commerce centers of the Alpha Quadrant. It is also the base of operation for the joint Starfleet-Klingon Special Borg Task Force. Since the First Dominion War, a U.S.S. Defiant is traditionally assigned to the station. Deep Space Nine's current commanding officer is James Kurland.
DS9 was key to the defense of the Alpha Quadrant during the Dominion War, and its commander, Benjamin Sisko, laid the groundwork that led to Bajor joining the Federation.
Note: Although Deep Space 9 is officially within the Bajor System, it is seperately accessible from sector space.
In 2369 Starfleet takes control of the station at the request of the Bajoran provisional government. Following the discovery of the Bajoran wormhole the station is moved from its original position in Bajor's orbit and becomes one of the most important commerce facilities in the entire Alpha Quadrant. It is also the starting point for any ship exploring the Gamma Quadrant.
After hostile confrontations lead to all-out war, Deep Space Nine is at the center stage of the First Dominion War from 2373 to 2375. The station's crew, including commanding officer Benjamin Sisko, take part in many pivotal battles of the war.
Following the Dominion War, Deep Space Nine remains an important hub for trade, commerce, diplomacy and military operations. While True Way forces attempt to destabilize the region by attacking the station numerous times, DS9 is mostly recognized as the base of operation for joint Starfleet-Klingon anti-Borg operations. In late 2409 Deep Space Nine is once again overrun by Dominion forces, who were displaced in time by the Bajoran Prophets.
