==Station History==
 +
Formerly known as Terek Nor by its [[Cardassian]] builders, DS9 is the nearest [[United Federation of Planets|Federation]] facility to an unusually large and stable [[wormhole]] leading to the [[Gamma Quadrant]]. It was originally an ore processing facility for Cardassian mining operations on Bajor.

 +
==Armament==
 +
The [[Federation]] has equipped DS9 with numerous [[phaser]] banks, 5000 [[photon torpedo]]s, and a high-powered [[shield]] system.<ref>[[DS9]] "Way of the Warrior"</ref>  It is capable of standing in battle against a fleet of dozens of [[Klingon]] or [[Dominion]] warships for an extended period of time.
 +
 
 +
==Strategic Importance==
 +
DS9 was a critical facility for the Federation because it controlled the [[Alpha Quadrant]] opening of the [[Bajoran Wormhole]].  It was also the main base of operations after [[Starbase 375]].
