Twenty years ago, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine debuted on television.
Deep Space Nine was the third televised series, but unlike the first two, it took place on a space station, not a starship, and that was deliberate, according to Co-creator Michael Piller. “Coming with the wind at our backs, it really felt as if we had figured out what made Star Trek work, and that we could bring all the vision that Gene Roddenberry had about space and the future to a different kind of franchise,” he said. “We didn’t want to have another series of shows about space travel.”

As the twentieth anniversary of the debut of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine approaches, Nana Visitor shares her memories of the show, beginning with her unusual approach to her audition for the role of Kira Nerys.
