SPACE NINE formerly known as Terok Nor, is situated in the Bajoran
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" ..
