It takes considerable effort on the part of its crew, but the titular space station in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is able to move in space. DS9 broke the mold for Star Trek by setting the action aboard a space station rather than a starship, which didn’t enamor the show to the franchise’s more puritanical fans. Because of its stationary location, the strange new worlds had to come to DS9 via the representatives that would visit from the wormhole. DS9 quickly outgrew its location, as Commander Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) and his crew’s exploration of the Gamma Quadrant led to the sweeping Dominion War arc.
