BIOGRAPHICAL DATA
SPECIES:Human
PLACE OF BIRTH:2332, New Orleans, North America, Earth
He married Jennifer in 2353, just after graduating from Starfleet Academy. He has one son, Jake Sisko, born in 2355. His wife Jennifer was killed at the Battle of Wolf 359 with the Borg. He has one sister, Judith. His father, Joseph Sisko, is still alive and running his creole restaurant in New Orleans on Earth. Ben enjoys baseball, history, cooking, archaeology, and collecting ancient African artifacts.

In 2369, following the Cardassian withdrawal from the Bajoran Sector, Sisko was promoted to Commander and assigned as commanding officer of Deep Space 9. The old Cardassian station formerly named Terok Nor, built during the Occupation of Bajor, was transferred to Bajoran control and the Bajoran Provisional Government requested Federation aid in running the station. Kai Opaka told Sisko that he was the Emissary of the Prophets, the religious leader promised by the prophets as the one who would save Bajor by finding the Celestial Temple of the Prophets, which he did in 2369 with the discovery of the Bajoran Wormhole in the Denorios Belt in the Bajoran System. The station was then moved from orbit around Bajor to the mouth of the wormhole, which connects the Alpha and Gamma Quadrants.

In 2371, Sisko built an ancient Bajoran solar-sail vessel and piloted it to Cardassia, proving that the Bajorans did the same 800 years prior. In 2373, Sisko had a vision that predicted the destruction of Bajor if they were admitted to the Federation. The Bajoran Council of Ministers delayed Federation admission.

Captain Sisko thinks of Bajor as his home. He bought land there and he hopes to one day build a home there. In 2375, he married Kassidy Yates and she soon became pregnant.

After defeating Gul Dukat and trapping him in the Fire Caves of Bajor with the Pagh-Wraiths, he joined the Prophets in the Celestial Temple, leaving behind Jake and Kasidy on the station.
