Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first aired in 1993. Set at about the same time as TNG (2369), it is the only Trek series set on a space station instead of a starship. This relatively fixed setting (near the planet Bajor) allowed the series to develop much longer story arcs (including the Dominion War, which spanned seasons, not just episodes) and complex character relationships. The series ran for seven years.

DS9 in Fanfiction Edit
DS9 contains some popular lust objects, such as young, handsome doctor Julian Bashir, and some popular 'ships, including Bashir/Garak. ... Basically, people really like Dr. Bashir, even though he starts out pretty arrogant and annoying. There's even a Bashir Hologram working in the PPC's Medical Department.
