"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" or simply "DS9," was a spin-off of the highly popular science fiction series "Star Trek." Its purpose was to create a more gritty look at the otherwise squeaky clean universe. It ran from 1993 - 1999. So what have the actors done since that hasn't involved "Star Trek"?

Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko)

Film and television roles have been next to nothing since Brooks left "DS9." Most of his energy has been focused in theater. Since 2003, he's held leading roles in many plays such as playing Othello at the well-known Shakespeare Theater Company. He's also been working on music from which he has an extensive background. His most recent screen work was in 2009 when he narrated a National Geographic documentary called "Drain the Oceans."

Nana Visitor (Major Kira Nerys)

Since "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," Visitor has been quite more involved in television than Brooks. She has had major and minor roles in several hit series such as "Dark Angel," and "CSI," and has appeared in a few films, such as the more recent "Friday the 13th." She also did some Broadway work. Her most current work has been a few guest (voice) appearances on "Family Guy."

Rene Auberjonois (Constable Odo)

Auberjonois has been all over the map, doing everything from theater, to voice on animated programs and video games, to appearing in films for large and small screens, to even starring in another hit series "Boston Legal" from 2004-2008. Auberjonois has certain been very busy. His more recent roles include a guest appearance on Syfy's "Warehouse 13," and he does the voice of Mr. House in the video game Fallout: New Vegas.

Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko)

Loften has not done as much acting as many of his "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" co-stars. He guest starred on a few shows here and there, some minor roles in a couple of films and a voice on a video game. His last recorded credit was a role on "Ball Don't Lie," a film starring Rosanna Arquette and Ludacris in 2008.

Alexander Siddig (Doctor Julian Bashir)

Alexander Siddig, formerly known as Siddig el Fadil, has been consistently busy since the ending of "DS9." He has had roles on such hit movies like "Reign of Fire," "Syriana," and "Clash of the Titans." He's had a few recurring roles on hit television series such as 24. His most recent role is in a film entitles Miral where he plays Miral's father. The film is set to be released next year.

Colm Meaney (Chief Miles O'Brien)

Colm Meaney has been just about as busy as Rene Auberjonois. His credit list since "ST: DS9" ended is so long that it would be impossible for me to list everything here. Some of the highlights include "Law and Order: Criminal Intent," "Stargate: Atlantis," "The Unit, Law and Order" (original), "Mercy," and the Syfy miniseries "Alice." He has 3 films (so far) coming out next year including a film entitled "Bel Ami" which will star Robert Pattinson ("Twilight"), Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman, and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Terry Farrell (Lt. Cmdr. Jadzia Dax)

Terry Farrell left "Deep Space Nine" just before the last season and began starring opposite Ted Danson in the hit comedy, "Becker." She left Becker after four years (two years before the series ended). She has only performed in three television movies since then and hasn't been on screen since 2003.

Armin Shimerman (Quark)

Armin Shimerman has been just as busy as Auberjonois and Meaney with approximately 100 roles since "DS9" ended. Highlights include "Judging Amy," "Charmed," "Boston Public," "The West Wing," "ER," "Numb3rs," "Boston Legal," "Leverage," and many, many more. His most recent work is a film called "For Christ's Sake" where he plays the role of The Pope.
