Is it possible? Has it been 18 years Deep Space Nine premiered on January 3, 1993? Indeed it has.
The Bajorans had won their battle against the Cardassians and asked the United Federation of Planets to help govern Deep Space Nine, a Cardassian space station located near the Bajoran wormhole.
The series, which ran for six years, introduced us to a different type of Star Trek stories that mostly took place in DS9 and revolved around the relationship between the UFP, Bajorans, and Cardassians.
Since being hooked on Star Trek: The Next Generation, it was easy for me to involve myself into the DS9 storyline, especially since the series included two TNG alumni--Miles O'Brien and Worf. And I quickly became a fan of the Trill, the symbiotic life form, who was DS9's chief science officer.
