Deep Space Nine was the best and most important Star Trek show ever. It dealt with serious topics not ever seen before in Star Trek - like space, aliens, rayguns, morality, and religion. (grumble, fucking trekkie fucks, grumble)
Behind the Scenes
Deep Space Nine was originally developed as Deep Star Six, about an undersea base which was once held by Atlanteans but had been returned to the Lemurians. But then the writers realized they had fallen asleep watching a movie of the same name on cable, and had eaten too much pizza.
Michelle Forbes was originally sought to play the role of Kira but she told everyone to piss off. Jonathan Frakes unsuccessfully tried out for the role of Morn. Harrison Ford never had anything to do with this production.
The cast fondly remembers the Deep Space Nine craft services table, and many have shared memories over the years of the excellent janitorial services that were provided.
