Aliens of Deep Space Nine.
As the gateway to the Gamma Quadrant—or the Alpha Quadrant depending on where you normally hang your hat—DS9 saw countless alien races walk down its dimly-lit corridors. Some were familiar from TOS and TNG, some were new to Star Trek, and some were possibly from 1980s music videos. In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing discuss a few of the key species that turned up on the station, those that made DS9's complex storylines work, and even a few that left us simply scratching our heads. Plus, we hand out awards to recognize some of the more unique contributions to the show.
