Over the weekend Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys), Armin Shimerman (Quark), and Andy Robinson (Garak) participated in a Deep Space Nine virtual event for Galaxy Con. During the panel discussion, the actors talked about the legacy of the show, noting how it is especially relevant to today and how that in part is due to the leadership of star Avery Brooks (Sisko).
The legacy of the show, I think Nana is right that the more things change, the more we stay the same. Because of what Andy said as well, we are dealing with strange times with an understanding of what the African-American community has been suffering for many years. We were always reminded of that on the show. We had a phenomenal actor who was very much concerned with Black Lives Matter, our captain, Avery Brooks.
