DEEP SPACE NINE formerly known as Terok Nor, is situated in the Bajoran Solar 
System in order to regulate traffic to and from the Gamma Quadrant.  
The space station was built during the Cardassian occupation, to regulate the strip 
mining of the planet. When the Cardassians withdrew, they also abandoned the  
station, but not before both wrecking it, and concealing booby traps. At the  
behest of the Bajoran provisional government, Starfleet took up residence in an  
effort, to help the planet in its recovery program. A recovery program which was  
initiated after the war with the Cardassians. Now the station under command by  
Captain Benjamin Sisko must not only help the Bajorans with the recovery  
program,but also defend the Alpha Quadrant from the danger that lies beyond the  
wormhole, which in Bajoran prophesies is also known as"The Celestial Temple" ..
