Nine Guests Stars Of ‘Deep Space’

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine premiering on television.  The show set itself apart from previous Trek series by being more serialized, which was considered a sin for TV at the time.  How could fans enjoy a show if missing one episode meant missing ongoing plot points?  This was in the days before DVRing or streaming your favorite shows.  These days binging shows is almost expected, so you could say the show was before its time.

One thing that was always a mainstay of the Trek franchise was having major guest stars (even though they were often unrecognizable under all the latex and makeup).  People like Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Collins, David Soul and Stephen Hawking  graced previous iterations of the franchise.  But Deep Space Nine had its own share of guest stars that either went on to great fame or continued a strong career by appearing on the show.

Here are nine of the more interesting guest stars from the series.
