Captain Sisko is the leader of the Federation presence on Deep Space 9 and, much to his chagrin, chose Emissary of the Prophets of Bajor. Balancing these two roles has never been easy for Sisko, especially having to raise his son alone in this environment.
To make matters more complicated, the discovery of a wormhole leading to the Gamma Quadrant has made Bajor and DS9 a prime target for an organization known only as the Dominion. The Dominion has objected violently to peaceful exploration of their space leading to war. This only serves to make Captain Sisko more determined to protect the Bajoran people and that of the Alpha Quadrant from this threat. Along with his crew, Sisko seeks a way to end this conflict in a peaceful manner, but stand ready to respond with force when necessary.
