" The Land and the People are One."
— Ancient Bajoran proverb. ( Decipher RPG module: )
Worlds 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: )
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 Buried Age
First official contact with the
Cardassian Union took place in 2318, although a small number of traders, such as Kubus Oak were already well known to them. Soon after, many members of the Oralian Way moved to Bajor to seek refuge from the Cardassian Central Command. Over the next decade however, the Central Command's presence and influence on Bajor increased to the point that by 2328, they had become an invasive force, and had occupied the planet as an annexed world of the Union. ( DS9 novel: )
Day of the Vipers
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")
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: )
Bajor was not attacked by the
Borg during the invasion of 2381, although there were concerns the Borg would do so. ( - ST Destiny novel: )
