Bajor was the homeworld of the Bajoran people and capital planet of the Republic of Bajor. Throughout much of the 24th century it was occupied by the Cardassian Union. Following Cardassian withdrawal in 2369, the planet became affiliated with the United Federation of Planets, becoming a member world in 2376.

It was a class M planet, the seventh planet in the Bajoran system in the Alpha Quadrant, located near the Bajoran wormhole and the Denorios Belt. Its capital city was Ashalla. (DS9 novel: Twilight)

Bajor had at least five moons, including Derna, Penraddo, Jeraddo and the outmost moon The Prodigal. (DS9 episodes: "Progress", "Image in the Sand", DS9 novel: The Fall of Terok Nor)

Unlike the planet Earth, Bajoran days last 26 hours. (TOS novel: Captain's Peril)

Sometimes the planet was referred to by the name Bajora. (TNG comic: "Bridges")

History

The Bajoran archeological record goes back to about 28,000 B.C. (TNG novel: The Buried Age)

Emblem of the Republic of Bajor

Bajor suffered under Cardassian occupation and oppression for over 60 years, ending in the year 2369. Shortly after the Cardassian withdrawal, the Bajoran Provisional Government petitioned the United Federation of Planets for relief efforts.

The Cardassian mining station, Terok Nor, was placed into the custodianship of Starfleet, who renamed the station Deep Space 9. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")

Agrobiology camps were set up on Bajor in the years following the Cardassian withdrawal, in order to help the Bajorans learn how to live off their ravaged planet, with the goal of making the world as fertile as it was before the environmental damage of the Cardassian mining operations. In late 2371 a Federation agrobiology camp on Bajor was the scene of a dramatic showdown when a secret Obsidian Order strike team landed nearby in order to recover a temporal disruptor that was sealed in a nearby mine. The chroniton subatomic particle flux from the released temporal device caused ripples in time that caused several alternate timelines to form, as well as a massive radiation release that caused sickness across the camp. (DS9 comic: "No Time Like the Present")

Bajor was the center of events during the Dominion War (2373-2375) due to its proximity to the Bajoran wormhole, the Dominion's only pipeline for troops and material.

The Bajoran sector was temporarily occupied by the forces of the Dominion and Cardassia in the years 2373 and 2374.

The treaty ending the war with the Dominion was signed in Bajoran space, on station Deep Space 9, in late 2375. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

Soon after, Benjamin Sisko, the Emissary of the Prophets, stopped Skrain Dukat and Winn Adami from releasing the Pah-wraith and destroying Bajor. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

Bajor joined the United Federation of Planets on September 29, 2376. (DS9 novel: Unity)

Bajor was not attacked by the Borg during the invasion of 2381, although there were concerns the Borg would do so. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

Further Information

Overview

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.
