Deep Space Nine, originally a Cardassian mining station in orbit of Bajor, was a space station at the mouth of the Bajoran wormhole and the gateway to the Gamma Quadrant.
In 2376 the station was officially transferred to Starfleet as part of a new treaty which saw several starships transferred to the reinstated Bajoran Space Guard.
Commodore Nikolas Stone assumed command of the newly transferred station that same year and began running it as a Starfleet station, with a wholly Starfleet crew.
When the transfer occurred, the Ferengi Embassy to Bajor was forced to move to Bajor, though Quark's remained in business.
The new status of Deep Space Nine saw more improvements and upgrades to the station, including more embarked craft, four type 2 drydocks, and a tachyon detection grid.
