Further Information Edit


Bajor is the home of one of the Alpha Quadrant's oldest, and most spiritual, civilizations. Bajoran history stretches back more than fifty millennia. In ancient times, Bajor had an impact on several worlds in nearby sectors, including Cardassia. In recent times, however, it was only in the late 24th century that the world became a major player on the galactic scale, and then, only after the long dark night of the Cardassian Occupation from 2328 to 2369.

With the discovery of the Bajoran wormhole shortly after the Cardassian withdrawal, Bajor was catapulted to strategic prominence, and gradually entered galactic politics. Applying for Federation membership in 2369, Bajor was officially accepted in 2373, however membership was delayed by the Dominion War.
