What Deep Space?

We are about to watch the pilot episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, for the podcast next week. This has me questioning something I never did the entire time I was enjoying this series way back when. Exactly why is this show called Deep Space Nine? What Deep Space is the station in? It’s right near Bajor, isn’t it? Sure, it’s a long way from Earth, but after all, Earth isn’t the only planet in the Federation. Then again, I’m glad the show isn’t called Star Trek: In Orbit Nine.
