@bgcarlisle Also, humans: let's rename Terok Nor to Deep Space 9

@DS9 @bgcarlisle i like to imagine that bajoran social media has a lot of snarky memes about the federation naming a station in the bajoran system "deep space"

@taweret @DS9 @bgcarlisle

They never really establish where the name comes from. In-story, I mean.

There are other stations named "Deep Space" mentioned, but does starfleet have a whole set of numbered stations named "Deep Space"? Two-hundred years in, why are they only up to #9?

It's such a generic name, that it's not impossible that it's named after a set of eight Bajoran stations. (destroyed in the war?) It would make sense that they got to name it, anyway.

@taweret @DS9 @bgcarlisle

See also : Farpoint Station.

That was on a planet ... and the people on that planet named it "Farpoint"?

@apLundell @DS9 @bgcarlisle im not complaining about the name i think it works beautifully with the shows anticolonialism themes

i mean if i were a bajoran i would definitely be like "'deep' space from what, motherfuckers?"

but that's just the point. think the emissary when bashir talks about frontier medicine and kira rightfully goes off on him
