Team captain Sisko


Niners in the dugout

The Niners were an amateur baseball team, formed in 2375 by Starfleet Captain Benjamin Sisko and consisting of crew members of starbase Deep Space 9 as well as several of its civilian residents.

Assembled to meet a challenge issued by Captain Solok and his team, the Vulcan Logicians of the starship USS T'Kumbra, the Niners participated in one baseball game in one of DS9's holosuites. With only team members Benjamin Sisko, his son Jake Sisko and girlfriend Kasidy Yates having any experience with the game, the Niners' experience was one of intense training. Benefiting the team were the gymnastic talents of Ezri Dax, the genetically-engineered physical abilities of Julian Bashir and the natural strength of Klingon player Worf, the team nevertheless lost to the Logicians. With both Sisko and Solok ejected from the game by umpire Odo, the Niners scored a single run from Nog, on an accidental (but triumphant) squeeze bunt by Rom. (DS9: "Take Me Out to the Holosuite")

Quark recalled playing for the Niners later that year. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

Alternate MeaningsEdit

Quite often in the Star Trek Fandom, fans who choose Deep Space Nine as their favourite Star Trek Show, have adopted the name 'Niners', or 'Niner'; this is because they take pride in favouring a show that starkly divides the Star Trek fans. In general, fewer fans love the show, in comparison to The Original Series, The Next Generation or Voyager.
