Emblem of the Republic of Bajor.

The Bajoran Militia (also known as the Bajoran Military Guard) is the military of the Republic of Bajor. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, DS9 novelization: What You Leave Behind)




Prior to the Occupation

The Militia was in existence by 2318, but was disbanded by the Cardassians after their takeover. (TN novel: Day of the Vipers)


Jaro Essa, who had served in the Militia before the Occupation, oversaw its reestablishment in 2369. (TN novel: Dawn of the Eagles)

Many members of the Resistance joined the Militia soon after the Occupation, including Kira Nerys and Lenaris Holem. (DS9 episodes: "Emissary", "Shakaar")

Several Militia personnel served with Captain Benjamin Sisko and his Starfleet crew aboard Deep Space 9 in a variety of positions. Major Kira was also given access to the USS Defiant. (DS9 episodes: "Emissary", "Defiant")


In late 2371, Kai Winn Adami (who was temporarily First Minister) sent the Militia to recover the soil reclamators that Shakaar Edon had refused to return. The Militia later pursued the former Shakaar members into the hills of Dahkur Province. (DS9 episode: "Shakaar")

As per Bajor's non-aggression pact with the Dominion, the Militia worked with the Dominion forces when they occupied the Bajoran system in late 2373 and early 2374. Several members later helped to overthrow the Dominion's control of Deep Space 9. (DS9 episodes: "A Time to Stand", "Sacrifice of Angels")

In 2375, Colonel Kira Nerys commanded a Militia impulse ship fleet in a blockade of Derna to stop the Romulans from arming the plasma torpedo launchers they had deployed there. (DS9 episode: "Shadows and Symbols")

In 2376, Lenaris Holem commanded the Militia's Lamnak fleet during the evacuation of the Europani from Europa Nova. (DS9 novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)

Federation membership

Although some members transferred to Starfleet after Bajor joined the United Federation of Planets in 2376, the Militia remained as the planet's defense force. (DS9 novels: Unity, Warpath)

In 2380, Federation President Nanietta Bacco offered to petition the Militia to patrol the Cardassian Union's "trouble spots", although Elim Garak believed the Castellan would not be receptive to the idea. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals)

The war room of the Bajoran Militia in 2370.

The Bajoran Militia is a Bajoran military organization dedicated to the protection of Bajor and its territories. The Bajoran Provisional Government authorized this organization, comprised of mainly former Bajoran Resistance fighters.

The rank structure bears resemblance to many Earth armies. Like in Starfleet and Earth armies, officers usually graduate from an academy. In this case, graduates come from the Bajoran Military Academy. (DS9: "Emissary", "Meridian")

Federation Starfleet agreed to work with the Bajoran Militia to run abandoned Cardassian space station Deep Space 9, first in orbit of Bajor and later near the Bajoran Wormhole. Captain Benjamin Sisko, from Earth, was DS9's commanding officer from 2369 to 2375, with Bajoran Militia Major Kira Nerys acting as executive officer during that time. When Sisko disappeared in 2375, Kira took command. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
