Star Trek The Battle for Deep Space 9

The First Battle of Deep Space 9 opened the Federation-Klingon War of 2372-2373. In early 2372, a Klingon task force led by Chancellor Gowron and General Martok launched an attack on the Federation space station of Deep Space 9, in an attempt to force Captain Benjamin Sisko to relinquish the Cardassian Detapa Council members under his protection. The Klingons had under-estimated the station's defenses, and were unable to take the station before the arrival of Starfleet reinforcements. Faced with the prospect of massive losses and an escalating war on two fronts, Gowron ordered his forces to withdraw.

The Second Battle of Deep Space 9 was the opening engagement of the Dominion War, in which the combined forces of the Jem'Hadar and the Cardassian Union, under the nominal command of Gul Dukat, captured Federation starbase Deep Space 9.

Fought in mid 2373, the Dominion launched the assault to prevent a catastrophic strategic loss; the mining of the Bajoran wormhole, which would effectively sever supply lines from the Gamma Quadrant. Two days after Captain Benjamin Sisko rejected Weyoun's ultimatum to remove the minefield, a large task force of Dominion and Cardassian warships launched an assault on the station, intending to capture it before the Defiant could complete the minefield.

Although the Dominion successfully captured the station from the Federation and drove Allied forces from Bajoran space, the losses they incurred were severe; fifty ships were destroyed in the battle, and the Dominion were unable to prevent the activation of the minefield.

Despite being starved of reinforcements from the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion launched a highly successful campaign into Allied territory, bringing them tantalisingly close to victory. However, the Dominion began experiencing critical supply shortages of both ketracel-white and warships as a result of the wormhole being mined, preventing them from attaining an early total success in the war.
