Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Harbinger is a computer game for the MS-DOS and Apple Macintosh operating systems. The game is based upon the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It was the first Star Trek: Deep Space Nine computer game to be released for the PC.

Plot

The player is the character Envoy Bannick on special assignment to a newly discovered race in the Gamma Quadrant. On your return trip through the wormhole, you are attacked by some sort of alien drones and, despite assistance by Deep Space Nine, crash into its docking ring while on emergency approach.

Once the player arrives on the station, they discover most of it has been abandoned except for senior staff due to a plasma storm in the vicinity. The Defiant is missing and on evacuation duty as well, leaving only two runabouts and an ambassadorial ship from the alien race the player was negotiating with docked at the station.

Almost immediately after arrival, Deep Space Nine is attacked by the same hostiles that attacked the runabout, after driving them off, players attempt to contact the ambassador only to find him murdered.

After solving the murder and discovering how exactly the new aliens know of the drones that are attacking the station in ever increasingly strong waves, you and Major Kira mount an attack on the drone factory homeworld, attempting to stop the final assault which will destroy Deep Space Nine and swarm Bajor afterwards.

With the attack thwarted and your runabout destroyed, you and Kira evacuate on a custom built drone, back to the station as the factory world explodes.
