Deep Space 9, originally known as Terok Nor, was an orbital space station constructed by the Cardassians in orbit of Bajor during their occupation of the planet. Following the Cardassian withdrawal, the station came under Federation administration at the request of the Bajoran provisional government. After Commander Benjamin Sisko and Lieutenant Jadzia Dax discovered a stable wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant in the system's Denorios belt, the station was relocated to the mouth of the wormhole and became a vital commercial port and defensive outpost. It later became a key strategic location during the Dominion War, for both the Dominion and the Federation Alliance. Deep Space 9 is available in both the form form of an oversized cardboard token with associated cards as well as a pre-painted plastic miniature.
