In the vicinity of the liberated planet of Bajor, the Federation space station Deep Space Nine guards the opening of a stable wormhole to the far side of the galaxy.
After production ended, and the sets were dismantled, the Defiant bridge set was declared "fold and hold" and placed in storage. It was re-dressed and used as the bridge of an alien cargo ship and a Klingon battlecruiser on Star Trek: Voyager (1995) and the bridge of the ECS Fortunate on Star Trek: Enterprise (2001).
Four weeks! Are you telling me I've been hanging around a Changeling for over a month?
Doctor Bashir: And you never suspected it wasn't me?
Several times, Starfleet or Bajoran military characters remove their comm badges to avoid location by the station computer. However, in one episode, Sisko uses the computer to find Jake, which means it must have a secondary location algorithm that, for some reason, never kicks in when it would be inconvenient to the plot.
The opening credits for "Emissary" lacked the wormhole opening that all future episodes featured. Starting with Season 4, the opening credits included additional spacecraft and activity around the station, including the Defiant flying into the wormhole.
Several episodes were originally shown as 2-hour movies. They were later edited into two-part 60 minute episodes for later airings.
