Far Beyond The Stars

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: After the loss of a friend in the war, a despondent Sisko is considering giving up and leaving the fight to someone else – but then he begins having strange hallucinations, in which he is Benny Russell, a struggling black writer for a science fiction magazine, facing racism on Earth in the 1950’s. Inspired by a drawing of a space station, Benny writes a story called “Deep Space Nine,” about the adventures of Captain Benjamin Sisko – but the magazine editor, Pabst, refuses to run the story, believing that no one will want to read a story about a black captain. Will Benny’s dream of a better future prevail…or is Pabst right?
