Deep Space 9

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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.

[edit] System Description

A space station originally built by the Cardassian occupation forces in orbit of Bajor, DS9 was surrendered to Federation administration in 2369. It became one of the most important strategic posts in Starfleet after the discovery of the Bajoran wormhole, and the station was moved to the mouth of the wormhole itself.

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.

[edit] History

Deep Space Nine was built in 2351 as a mining station, serving Cardassian forces during the Occupation of Bajor. The station's original designation is Terok Nor.

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.

The Treaty of Bajor was signed at Deep Space Nine in 2375.

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.

[edit] Notes

  • The appearance of the space around Deep Space 9 was heavily redesigned with the release of the fourth Featured Series The 2800 to more closely resemble canon (e.g., purple Denorios belt instead of diffuse brown nebula).
  • Starting with Season Five, Klingon players have access to the station.
