DS9's basic premise was "The Rifleman in space", and, for all the storyline twists and turns that the PTBs added over the years, none of said things altered that basic idea.

Everybody cites Firefly as being a Space Western, but at its core, DS9 was too. It didn't have the obvious Western visual motifs the way Firefly did, but the tropes and conceptual trappings of your classic Western were all very much present in the show from beginning to end.
The Rifelman was the model, not the premise.
