COLONEL KIRA NERYS
is the communications Officer on Deep Space Nine, and the negotiator between Deep Space Nine, the Federation and Bajor. She was a member of the Bajoran underground and worked as a terrorist.

She is a well trained pilot and a fine warrior. Kira oposes the Federation presence, although she helps and works with the Federation crew. She was involved with Vedek Berile, the next to be Kai, a spirtual leader of Bajor. She opposes the new Kai, Kai Win. She has a great leading ability and charisma, as she has proved many times. Despite her violent nature, she is a woman of sensetivity and intellect, and according to the old Kai, Opaka, has to stop being violent and to look inside her soul.
is the chief of security on Deep Space Nine and a Changeling. He can assume any form he likes, which helps him in his line of work. He was first found in the Denorious belt floting in space. He was brought to Bajor and was thought to come from the Gamma Quadrent. He was investigated and studied in his liquid form, until one day he assumed a form of an imperfect human. Odo decends from a race known as the Founders, and played a major role in the

LIEUTENANT COMMANDER WORF
is the son of Mogh and he was born on the Klingon homeworld. His natural parents died in a Romulan attack at the Khitomer outpost soon after the alliance between the Federation and the Klingon Empire was formed. Then he was adopted by Sergey and Helena Rozhenko. Sergey was one of the Federation's rescue team that arrived at the outpost after the Romulan's attack.
Worf graduated from the Academy and was the first Klingon to enter Starfleet. Worf was assigned as flight control officer on board the U.S.S. Enterprise. He was promoted to Chief of Security when Natasha Yar was killed. Shortly after the destruction of the Enterprise-D, Worf was transfered, at the request of Commander Sisko, to Deep Space Nine.

the very resourceful and knowledgable tailor on the Promenade of Deep Space Nine, is the only remaining Cardassian on the space station. The reasons for his decision to stay and live in exile, after the withdrawal of his people from Bajor, are often shrouded in mystery and speculation. Although, after collecting clues here and there in the series, one comes to know these reasons. He was apparently exiled from Cardassia after serving with the ruthless Obsidian Order, and being accused with a crime
he did not commit.
Garak is completely enigmatic, and at times he can be utterly charming and articulate, and he posses a great intellect. Most lunch times he can be found enjoying a meal and lively conversation with Doctor Bashir,
sharing their passion for the arts. In darker moments the Cardassian reveals a cold, calculating ruthlessness, which is totally self serving. His lies are woven into such intricate webs that others are quite unable to distinguish exactly when he may be telling the truth.
is the Ferengi bartender on DS9. The Ferengi race, as seen in The Next Generation, are ugly, sexist, greedy little aliens who are interested only in profit and getting theirs hands on anything of yours they happen to fancy. Quark runs many of the entertainment concessions on DS9.
He has a bar, a restaurant, a gambling house (dabo), and the holosuites upstairs where your every fantasy can be played out. He spends most of his time behind the bar. If there is some scam being run in the sector it often involves him. But beyond that, he is a charming host, in a Ferengi sort of way. He forges interesting relationships with Captain Sisko and Constable Odo.
He lends a hand to dissolve problems as long as there's something in it for him. His completely sexist attitude makes Kira an obvious adversary and he was consumed with passion for Dax.
