Deep Space Nine was my favorite Star Trek TV series, totally out of the box from the others; At some point I suggested for Star Trek film 9 to be mainly be about the DS9 station and its inhabitants. I even sent to the Paramount studio a Baseball film opening suggestion letter with a little drawing, which to my surprise, turned out instead into a whole Deep Space Nine baseball episode. Deep Space Nine was really something else, with its attaching characters; And the USS Defiant is still my favorite Star Trek Ship. For DS9 fans, I strongly recommend the continuation to season 7 in the novels, starting with Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Unity. Rest in peace René Auberjonois, mission accomplished.
