Jacob "Jake" Issac Sisko was a Human male in the 24th century. He was the son of Starfleet officer Benjamin Sisko and his wife Jennifer Sisko. Jake spent his teen years with his father on Deep Space 9 where he developed an interest in writing, eventually becoming a novelist. He married Azeni Korena in 2376 and lived with her on Bajor into the 25th century. (In the Mirror Universe, he apparently doesn't exist. But, Jake may have died at a young age, and was never spoken about.)



Jake was born on June 12, 2355, in a Starfleet medical facility in San Francisco, planet Earth. His father was an Ensign at the time. (TLE novel: Deny Thy Father; (DS9 episodes: "The Abandoned", "Rapture")

Jake's mother was killed in 2367 at the Battle of Wolf 359. He lived with his father on Mars while the elder Sisko was assigned to the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. In 2369, they relocated to the Bajoran space station Deep Space 9, when his father, then a Commander, was given command of that post. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")


Deep Space 9

Soon after his arrival on the station, during a trip to Bajor, his father and Major Kira Nerys were trapped in an underground cave-in, and believed dead. During the rescue operation, Dr. Julian Bashir gave Jake a padd on which to write his thoughts. This would prove to be the beginning of his love of writing. (DS9 short story: "Ha'mara")

Jake's best friend on the station was the Ferengi Nog. In 2370 the pair decided to borrow a Horta egg from a clutch being cared for on the station. Unfortunately in doing so the two deactivated a stasis field around the eggs which had been preventing them from hatching. As a result twenty baby Horta hatched and began to devour the station. After the Horta had been stopped Jake volunteered to work on repairs to Quark's where the first Horta, from the egg they had taken, had hatched. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

Later that year Jake, Nog, his father and Quark travelled to the Gamma Quadrant for scientific survey/camping trip. Unfortunately the trip was interrupted by the Jem'Hadar. While they were elsewhere Quark and Jake's father were taken prisoner. Jake and Nog returned to camp to find their guardians gone. After trying to find them with tricorders they beamed back to their runabout but had no less success, there struggling to control the vessel. A small task force eventually showed up to rescue the group. Following this incident Jake decided to learn to fly a small-craft should he need to do so again in the future. (DS9 episode: "The Jem'Hadar"; novel: Avatar)

When Starfleet was forced to abandon DS9 in the early days of the Dominion War, Jake stayed aboard to report on the war for the Federation News Service. During this time, he became close friends with the daughter of Gul Skrain Dukat, Tora Ziyal. (DS9 episodes and novelizations: "Call to Arms", "Sacrifice of Angels"; short story: "Three Sides to Every Story")

Prophecy of the Avatar

After the end of the war, and the disappearance of his father, Jake spent some time excavating the ancient ruins of the city B'Hala on Bajor. There, he encountered Prylar Istani Reyla, who gave Jake an ancient prophecy which seemed to indicate that, if he were to enter the Bajoran Wormhole, he would be reunited with his father.

Jake bought a small craft, the Venture, from Quark and set off for the wormhole using debris from the USS Aldebaran, which had recently been destroyed, to hide his entrance into the wormhole. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

Before long, he was stranded in the Gamma Quadrant, and was eventually taken aboard the cargo ship Even Odds. He befriended that ship's crew and and partook in their adventures, until encountering the lost Bajoran Kai, Opaka Sulan. Realizing she was the subject of the prophecy rather than his father, Jake decided to return to DS9, accompanied by Opaka, and a Trellian woman named Wex. (DS9 novel: Rising Son)

Soon after his return, Jake, his grandfather Joseph Sisko, his stepmother Kasidy Yates, and Opaka were kidnapped by Bajoran Vedeks under the control of alien parasites out to control Bajor. Jake's father retuned from his sojourn with the Prophets in time to rescue them all, and to attend the birth of Jake's half-sister, Rebecca Jae Sisko. (DS9 novel: Unity)

Later life

Shortly afterwards, Jake went on a walkabout across Bajor, and met a woman named Azeni Korena. After a short courtship and engagement, the two were married, and made their home on Bajor. The culmination of his prose, Anslem, is finally published. Influenced by his encounter with the non-corporeal Onaya as a younger man, he drafts the semi biographical work of fiction. It becomes a best seller throughout his later years. (DS9 novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens DS9 episodes: The Muse; The Visitor)

By 2388, the relationship between the United Federation of Planets and Klingon Empire had deteroriated again. Jake Sisko managed to sneak onto Qo'noS in his position as a reporter for an interview with his friend and father's former colleague, Worf, Son of Mogh. Worf relented and gave the younger Sisko some information but insisted on assigning a guard to Jake while on the Klingon homeworld. Worf made Jake promise not to return to Klingon space without receiving his permission. The next year, 2389, saw Jake travel to Cardassia Prime for an interview regarding current events with Elim Garak. Despite Garak's evasiveness with regard to Sisko's questions, the reporter managed to get answers. The next year (in 2390), Sisko visited the USS Enterprise for an interview with Captain Data. (ST website: The Path to 2409)

In the early 25th century, Jake was back on Earth while Korena stayed on Bajor. Nog approached Jake with recently declassified files from the early days of the Federation, and investigated the conspiracy involving Charles Tucker III and the founding of the Federation.

Jake Sisko was the son of the famous Starfleet Captain Benjamin Sisko and Jennifer Sisko. He chose not to join Starfleet, instead becoming a writer. He was close friends with Nog, who would later became the first Ferengi in Starfleet. (DS9: "Emissary", et al)


Fanon continuity

Harry Potter and the Return of James T. Kirk

Jake was the Federation News Service's Bajoran sector bureau chief. It was in an interview with Harry Potter on the discovery of the saucer section of the USS Enterprise-A that Jake came up with the term for the citizens of Gamma Germanicus VII who helped recover it: Gang of Five.

Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles, Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions

Starfleet officers Anne Cobry and Scott Fack intercepted the escape pod Jake and his father were on after the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child") Fack later acted as Jake's counselor. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Dream a Little Dream of Me") As Fack was stationed at Starfleet Medical's Chicago office, it remains unclear whether Benjamin and Jake Sisko were living in Chicago after the Battle of Wolf 359 or Fack traveled to New Orleans (perhaps). The author assumed the latter.

We, the Living Dead

He joined a mission from Deep Space Nine through several planets related to the Q Continuum. He and Katie Jacobson became mutually attracted to one another.
