Deep Space Nine was the show that enjoyed one of the largest supporting cast out of all of the Trek series to date. Aside from the core characters, there were the regulars in Quark's bar and those Starfleet officers who dropped in from time to time to try to recall. Added to this, there was the mighty Dominion and the Klingon Empire - without a chart, sometimes it's a little difficult to keep all of the characters in check.
While there are dozens of characters who made up the cast of Deep Space Nine across the years, this list represents some of the most important recurring and main roles in the series' runtime. Characters like Kai Winn, Leeta, the Female Shapeshifter and Michael Eddington, while certainly important in their own right, aren't here simply because there is only so much room to work with - THAT'S how big the supporting cast was!
One of the major positives to a large cast however was the many different directions that the actors careers have taken them since. While many have remained on in television, some have moved into entirely new directions. Some are teaching, some are writing and others have run for office! Without further ado, here's what some of the favourite Deep Space Nine stars have been up to in the years since What You Leave Behind first aired.
