Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was the first Star Trek series to not be created or controlled by Gene Roddenberry since he passed away. (I think he was involved with the animated series, but if not, then DS9 is the second.) It also strays from his vision, creating a more ethically questionable Starfleet and questioning some of Roddenberry’s vision of the future. And yet it is beloved by the fandom.
As I continue to go over my 2016 ConnectiCon videos finally we get to the second of the videos I was able to shoot thanks to my cousin being able to take me that year, but only for a few hours on Saturday given that I was still in recovery mode. While I missed Walter Koening’s panel I did manage to catch the Q&A featuring Nana Visitor, who played Kira Nerys, the Bajoran representative and second in command of the station, and Michael Dorn, who played Worf on Star Trek: The Next Generation and later on Deep Space Nine. (My cousin was so happy to get his autograph.) Enjoy.
