We're focusing on one of our favorite Star Trek captains for Black History Month's 28 Days of Heroes.

Capt. Benjamin Sisko, from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, is one of the most nuanced character ever to grace the franchise. He's also one of the few black men we see in command in the Trek universe as he takes charge of the space station Deep Space Nine. Focusing on a station as opposed to a ship made for a different type of Trek series ... so it needed a different type of captain. Sisko had to face the tough calls out there in the far reaches of the galaxy and came to realize that sometimes there may not be a "right" answer.
