Starfleet is invited by the Bajorans to help them rebuild after the Cardassian Occupation. Commander Benjamin Sisko is selected to take command of the space station, Terok Nor, that is designated by Starfleet as Deep Space 9. As part of the agreement between the Federation and Bajor, Starfleet will help the Bajorans to become Federation members.

The Federation involvement in the Bajor sector changes galactic history forever, as Starfleet discovers the Bajoran wormhole, the only stable wormhole known to exist, that leads to the largely unexplored Gamma Quadrant.

The other crewmembers of Deep Space 9 include Kira Nerys, the Bajoran liaison officer, Odo, the security chief of the station, its chief medical officer, Julian Bashir, Miles O'Brien, the station's chief of operations and Jadzia Dax, a joined Trill, the station's science officer.

Other residents of the station include Quark, a Ferengi barkeeper, his brother Rom and Rom's son, Nog. Benjamin Sisko's son Jake also lives aboard the station. The most enigmatic station resident is the station's tailor, Elim Garak, who has a mysterious past.

In their first year together, the crew are infected with an aphasia virus, meet a hunted species of aliens, known as Tosk and have an encounter with the omnipotent Q. Quark briefly becomes Grand Nagus, Lwaxana Troi visits the station, a Cardassian called Aamin Marritza tries to get his people to admit to the crimes they committed on Bajor and the disappearance of Kai Opaka thrusts Bareil Antos and Winn Adami into the spotlight.
