Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was a comic book series from Malibu Comics, the first original Star Trek: Deep Space Nine monthly series, published from August 1993 to December 1995.

It depicted the events of missions taking place during the first four seasons of DS9. Several canon characters and concepts were included in the stories, but the details were possibly contradictory with televised Star Trek of the era, as the creators of the series were mostly unaffiliated with the actual DS9 creators. Among the writers were Mark A. Altman, Mike W. Barr, and Dan Mishkin,

The entire series has been reprinted in the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection and is also available in digital form in Star Trek: The Complete Comic Book Collection.
