Unusually for the Captain character, Sisko is not particularly popular in fanfiction. Where he appears at all, he often plays a supporting role in ensemble adventures, or acts as a mentor to his son Jake or to those under his command. Some gen fanfiction explores the revelations about his background from season 7 or the life of his alternate, Benny Russell, from 'Far Beyond the Stars'.

In pairing-centric stories, he's sometimes paired with Kasidy, his second wife in canon, or his friend, Jadzia. Slash stories are relatively rare, with no particular pairing dominating.
