Captain Benjamin Sisko, played by Avery Brooks, takes command in Star Trek Deep Space Nine on board a space station of the same name. Years after the Cardassian War ended, the planet Bajor gives the station to Starfleet. While it had a somewhat soap opera feel to it and its series finale was lackluster, the series did bring to life the Dominion War and is a staple to the franchise.
Here is my list of Top 10 Star Trek Deep Space Nine Episodes:
10. The Maquis – A terrorist group called ‘The Maquis’ forms and attacks Cardassian vessels along the border of the demilitarized zone near DS9.
09. Q-Less – The super-being Q arrives at the space station and discovers that Sisko is much more aggressive than Captain Picard.
08. Crossover – After an accident, several staff members of DS9 are flung into the Mirror Verse where they find Cardassia has won the war with the Federation thanks to an alliance with the Klingons.

06. Sons of Mogh – Worf’s younger brother Kurn arrives at DS9 wanting the older brother to kill him, which Captain Sisko forbids.

04. Trials and Tribble-ations – DS9 is flung into the past and crosses paths with Captain Kirk during the events of “The Trouble with Tribbles” from The Original Series.”
