The conflict involved a terrorist operation that managed to alter the gravitational balance of Rigel and its moon which caused them to collide. The details varied depending on the source as the Bajoran Ascendancy claimed it was a Starfleet operation while the Federation claimed it was the work of Bajoran terrorists.
