Star Trek: Deep Space NineThe week-long national syndication window opens for the two-hour first episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Starring Avery Brooks and Nana Visitor, and guest starring Patrick Stewart, the pilot is heavily promoted, and in most cases (but not all) airs on the same stations already carrying the Star Trek: TNG syndication package. At the time of broadcast, it’s one of the most expensive pilots ever produced; David Carson’s direction wins him the director’s chair on the next Star Trek feature film, Generations. DS9 is the first Star Trek series not created by Gene Roddenberry.
