The station was built by the Cardassians, but recently taken over by the Bajorans after a very oppressive occupation of their planet was ended. Sisko has one hell of a task before him. The station is in ruins after the Cardassians stripped it, merchants are preparing to leave and its Bajoran commander major Kira Nerys seems to dislike the Federation.

A legend is born
7 August 1999 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Emissary is a very good start for Deep Space Nine. It shows hoe Deep Space Nine has conflict and is darker than it's "older brother" the Next Generation. A fascinating thing about Emissary, is how it takes us back to the Next Generation two parter, Beast of Both Worlds. And the use of Picard in this adds to the fun.
