This is a big weekend for "Niners." Yesterday Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was launched on Netflix streaming and today is the birthday of Avery Brooks. The man who led DS9 turns 63 so we here at TrekMovie want to wish The Sisko a big happy birthday.
Happy Birthday to The Sisko
For the third Star Trek series the powers that be decided to bring in a very different kind of leader in the form of Commander (later Captain) Benjamin Sisko. And they chose Avery Brooks to inhabit this conflicted character who often lived in the grey areas, as this tribute video (by Youtuber pandagenma) shows.
Like the character he played on Star Trek, Avery Brooks is a unique character, as can be seen in this clip from William Shatner’s recent documentary The Captains.
So today we at TrekMovie wish Avery Brooks Happy Birthday!
