Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9) is the third Star Trek television series. Most of the series takes place on a space station called "Deep Space Nine". It was the first and so far only Star Trek show to be based on a space station rather than a starship.



On the space station Deep Space Nine, the crew gets sick with an aphasia virus, which makes them say random words in place of what they mean to say.
