In the game, the player controls a member of the Deep Space Nine's crew, mostly captain Benjamin Sisko, also doctor Julian Bashir, major Kira Nerys and Odo. Most of the game's levels are cinematic platformers, one is a horizontal-scrolling shooter. Platformer levels are of two types: 'adventure' levels and 'action' levels. In 'adventure' levels, the player character moves around the Deep Space Nine, talking with NPCs and ultimately reaching a certain point in the plot. In 'action' levels, the player wanders the level in the cinematic platformer style, climbing ledges, fighting enemies with a phaser, finding and using items, with an ultimate goal to fulfill a certain mission, sometimes within a given time limit.
