For the mirror universe counterpart, see Bajor (mirror).

"The Land and the People are One."
Ancient Bajoran proverb. (DS9 episode: "The Storyteller")

Bajor was the homeworld of the Bajoran people and capital planet of the Third 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 orbit of the Bajoran star system in the space of the galaxy's 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 Endalla, the innermost moon, followed by Derna, Penraddo, Jeraddo and the outermost moon Baraddo. (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")

In addition to its normal parallel universe versions, Bajor also had a counterpart in the antimatter universe. When Benjamin Sisko, now one of the Prophets, used his abilities to free both counterparts of the scientist Lazarus from their eternal combat, the positive matter Lazarus was deposited on matter-Bajor, and the antimatter Lazarus was placed on the antimatter universe's version of the planet. (TOS - Strange New Worlds 10 short story: "Reborn")


Emblem of the Republic of Bajor.

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

In the 15th century, Bajor's level of technology was analogous to that of Earth in the 23rd century. (TTN novel: Sword of Damocles)

Bajor had at least one extrasolar colony, Pillagra, which ultimately made first contact with the Federation (in the form of Captain James T. Kirk's USS Enterprise) in 2270. (TOS novel: Allegiance in Exile)

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")

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)

In 2377, Bajor was threatened with destruction by the Ascendants. An Isolytic subspace weapon was detonated near the moon Endalla, destroying the Ascendant fleet and saving the planet. (DS9 novel: Ascendance)

During the Borg Invasion of 2381, there were concerns the Borg would target Bajor; however, no such attack took place, and Bajor was left alone. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

Alternate timelines and realities

In an alternate timeline in which Captain Sisko became trapped in a subspace field in 2372, Bajor took the Emissary's apparent death as a sign from the Prophets that the Federation would be unable to protect the Bajoran people from the Klingon Empire. Consequently, the Bajoran government entered into a mutual defence pact with the Cardassian Union in 2373. (DS9 episode: "The Visitor")

In an alternate reality, Bajor had overthrown the Cardassian Union prior to 2370 and became increasingly aggressive towards the Federation. (TNG episode: "Parallels")

In another alternate reality, the Klingon Empire had conquered most of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants prior to 2380. Once the conquest of Bajor was complete, it planned to invade the Gamma Quadrant through the wormhole. (TNG novel: Q & A)
