WOW! Both sides of your coin specially shaped to match the contour of Deep Space 9! Order today!

From Gul Dukat’s machinations to the Dominion War, Star Trek™: Deep Space Nine set itself apart with season-spanning story arcs and character-driven plots that resonated with Canadian fans! The sci-fi series’ eponymous space station gives shape to our celebration of Deep Space Nine’s 25th anniversary. Engraved on both sides of your coin and the rim, the circular structure’s docking ring alters the coin’s rim, while full-colour images of the Bajoran system fill the field on both sides—an unforgettable FIRST!

Stepping away from the hopeful, exploration-themed spirit of its predecessors, Deep Space Nine struck a chord with storylines that focused more on the reality of life at the edge of the galaxy. It was the first Star Trek™ series set primarily on a space station—one built by an alien race, no less. The former Cardassian refinery-turned-Federation station was suddenly thrust into the galactic limelight after the discovery of the nearby Bajoran wormhole, which is vividly depicted on the coin’s reverse. Newly located at the crossroads of the Alpha and Gamma Quadrants, Deep Space 9 became a key commercial hub and a centre of diplomacy, eventually becoming the Alpha Quadrant’s first line of defence against a Dominion invasion.

A must-have Star Trek™ collectible for Deep Space Nine fans! Order today!

Design:

Within your coin’s uniquely shaped contour, the reverse design features a highly detailed, engraved rendering of the space station from Star Trek™: Deep Space Nine. Officially classified by Starfleet as a “hybrid planar-columnar tri-radial structure,” Deep Space 9’s shape is defined in part by an outer docking ring that lines the coin’s edge, which is punctuated by 12 docking ports and a series of thrusters. Another defining feature, the towering docking pylons extend towards an inner habitat ring, which is linked to a spherical-shaped central core. The station’s placement allows for a largely unobstructed view of the full-colour image that fills the field, where the Bajoran wormhole (top left) adds a bright swirl of colour to the snapshot of the Bajoran system. A different view of the series’ galactic locale is featured on the obverse, where a fine colour outline augments the engraved legend. The space station is also engraved on the obverse, where it frames the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Two characters, Worf and Miles O’Brien, made the leap from Star Trek™: The Next Generation to series regulars on Deep Space Nine. A number of other characters also made cameo appearances on the series, including Lwaxana Troi (“The Forsaken,” “Fascination,” “The Muse”), Jean-Luc Picard (“Emissary”) and Q (“Q-Less”)—in fact, Q has appeared on three Star Trek™ television series!
  • Deep Space 9 made a few cameo appearance of its own: the station’s exterior was seen in the Star Trek™: The Next Generation episode “Birthright,” and in the Star Trek™: Voyager episode, “Caretaker,” where the docking station was the last stop for U.S.S. Voyager before it was transported deep into the Delta Quadrant.
  • Quark’s best customer, Morn, is a fan favourite and a recurring gag! The Lurian courier had a reputation for being highly talkative, but he never spoke a single word in any of the 93 episodes he appeared in.
  • What was one of the most expensive Deep Space Nine episodes ever produced? The Season 5 episode “Trials and Tribble-ations, which paid tribute to the original Star Trek™ series on its 30th anniversary. Racing to save Captain James T. Kirk from a booby-trapped Tribble, the Deep Space 9 crew were digitally inserted into some of the original footage from the 1967 episode “The Trouble With Tribbles, while other scenes were re-staged using re-created costumes and décor.

Packaging:

Your coin comes beautifully packaged in a ready-to-display floating frame, ideal for work or home!
