Historical Note

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (often abbreviated as DS9) aired in syndication for seven seasons between 1993 and 1999. The show was a spin-off from Star Trek: The Next Generation created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller, and the shows were on the air together for two seasons. Ron Moore served as the show’s supervising producer for its third and fourth seasons; halfway through the fifth he was promoted to co-executive producer, a position he held for the show’s duration. Moore also wrote thirty of the show’s episodes. DS9 was the first Star Trek series to be written predominantly as a serial with significant character development occurring over the course of the show.
