Jennifer Sisko was the first wife of famous Starfleet captain Benjamin Sisko. The two met on Gilgo Beach in 2354 and were married soon after. Later that year, Jennifer and Benjamin attended the Mazurka Festival on New Berlin with Cal and Gretchen Hudson. (DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")

Their son Jake was born a year later.

Jennifer and Jake accompanied Ben on his assignment to the USS Saratoga, where she was killed when that ship was destroyed by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2366. Jennifer's death devastated Ben and it would be years before he began to move on emotionally. In fact, his bitterness and anger over her death, specifically toward Captain Jean-Luc Picard, whom the Borg assimilated and forced to lead their invasion of Earth as Locutus, almost led him to resign his Starfleet commission. (DS9: "Emissary", "The Way of the Warrior")

Her image was later used in a vision projected to Ben by the Prophets in 2369. (DS9: "Emissary")

Jennifer's death haunted Ben for years. He had trouble sleeping around the fourth anniversary of her death. Shortly after, he met Fenna, whom he told Jadzia Dax was the first person he'd "felt really drawn to" since Jennifer's death. (DS9: "Second Sight")

When Ben began dating Kasidy Yates he was initially uncomforable being with her, as it was his job that got Jennifer killed and he did not want the same to happen to her. (DS9: "Indiscretion")


Background Information

Jennifer Sisko was played by Felecia M. Bell.

In Voyages of Imagination, Robert Simpson notes that he and Marco Palmieri pitched a story to the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine writers that featured the return of Jennifer Sisko. Their idea was to have it revealed Jennifer was taken from the Saratoga by the Borg and assimilated. Benjamin Sisko would then encounter her. The pitch never sold, although Simpson later used the idea in the Mission Gamma novel "Lesser Evil".
