10 Things About Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

In what probably makes me strange compared to most Trekkies, my favorite Star Trek series is not The Orginial Series or The Next Generation but Deep Space Nine. Not at first as the first few seasons were pretty slow and typical Trek. However, once they were able to break away from the mold and tell more complex, darker stories the show really took off and never looked back with season 6 and 7 being the best seasons of TV ever created. Any case, culled some information from a wide variety of sources to bring you "10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The full article is here, summary below.

1) Alexander Siddig (Dr Bashir) was 1st choice for Captain Sisko
2) DS9 initially going to be like a western
3) Lwaxano Troi was going to be a semi-regular
4) Pagh was going to be in the feet (messaged by Kai) before moved to ears
5) Dax's Trill spots were numbered by lead makeup artist Michael Westmore on Terry Farrell's collarbone (reached 479)
