- The original Star Trek television show spawned a multitude of spin-offs, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is one of the most popular. And now it has made its way to the Super Nintendo/Genesis in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Crossroads of Time.
- You are Commander Sisko, the officer in charge of the Deep Space Nine space station, and you're in for a rough ride. Several mysterious events have triggered panic and disruption in the everyday routine of all those aboard the station, and it's your job to figure out what's going on and put a stop to it.
- You'll interact with numerous characters from the show as you tackle challenging puzzles that hold the key to solving the mystery. Trekkies will be amazed at the digital reproductions of the station, and all the popular Star Trek technology is available for use.

- Elements of "Captive Pursuit" including Tosk and the pursuit by the Hunters were to be featured in the game, but were removed due to cartridge memory capacity.
- There is an in-joke in the game about Star Trek not having shown a toilet. At one point the Klingon woman on the Promenade asks "nuqDaq 'oH puchpa''e'", which translates to "Where is the bathroom/toilet?" and Sisko replies, "I've never seen one of those here. Sorry."
- The stardate places this game as taking place between the DS9 episodes "If Wishes Were Horses" and "The Forsaken", although Opaka's presence places it before "Battle Lines".
