Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9) is a science fiction television program that premiered in 1993 and ran for seven seasons, ending in 1999. It is rooted in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek universe.
A spin-off from Star Trek: The Next Generation, DS9 began while its parent series was still on the air, and there were several crossover episodes between the two shows. In addition, two Next Generation characters, Miles O'Brien and later on Worf, became regular members of DS9.
Unlike the other Star Trek programs, DS9 took place on a space station instead of a starship, so as not to have two series with starships at the same time.
