Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had the distinction of being the most unusual Star Trek property as it was set aboard a previously occupied Cardassian space station known then as Terek Nor. When the occupation ended, the station was renamed Deep Space Nine, though it kept much of the Cardassian traits, including its gloomy interior. And though, through the series, we had access to operations, the medical bay, and the crews’ quarters, we only saw what the cameras allowed us to see. Fortunately, thanks to Hero Collector, today is a better day than most for us Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Fans as it has just released STAR TREK: Deep Space 9 &The U.S.S. Defiant Illustrated Handbook written by Simon Hugo and Ben Robinson.

Hero Collector is the publisher behind some of the best illustrated handbooks, including STAR TREK: U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 and STAR TREK: U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, and is well-known for its beautiful imagery and stunning attention to detail.

This hardback allows readers to observe Deep Space Nine’s construction as well as its operation. You’ll get a first-hand look at the weapons and defense systems as well as the crew quarters and operations where Captain Sisko and his crew faced down the Cardassians and the Changelings in a battle for control of the station.

In addition, you can step onboard the Federation warship, the U.S.S. Defiant where you’ll learn more about what made it one of the best ships in the Alpha Quadrant. And you can also take a peek inside the runabouts used by the station to see what makes them so handy.

This is a way to see Deep Space Nine like you’ve never seen it before with 200-plus images, artwork that includes phasers, remote transporters, tricorders, and more, as well as more than 60 beautifully rendered CG images, and many isometric illustrations.

The book is available now for $34.95 US and $39.95 CAN.
