In the Star Trek universe, the professional sport of baseball had died out in the 2040s. However, by the time of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
", in the 2370s, it was becoming popular again. Colony worlds were playing it. Captain Benjamin Sisko played it on the holodeck with his son, Jake. At one point (in the 7th season DS9 episode, "Take Me Out To The Holosuite"), a Vulcan Starfleet ship challenged Captain Sisko and his crew to a game on the holodeck. The Vulcans called their team the Vulcan Logicians; the crew of DS9 called themselves the Deep Space Niners. It was a fun episode, and one that seems to have become a fan favorite.
Since I'm a huge fan of both Star Trek and baseball, it made sense for me to create a line of Deep Space Niners gear for my store. I've recreated the actual DS9ers logo, as seen in the episode, and I've placed it on a replica baseball cap. I've also created an accurate t-shirt replica of the game jersey the Niners wore. Additional items such as other Deep Space Niners t-shirts, dark apparel, housewares, a collectable shot glass, pillows, bags and more can also be found on my Deep Space Niners
