Bajor is the M-class homeworld of the Bajorans, located near the Bajoran wormhole. Bajor is the homeworld of one of the oldest civilizations in the Alpha Quadrant, about half a million years old when the first Bajoran interstellar flight was made around the 16th century.

Following the Cardassian withdrawal from Bajor, a Provisional Government was established in attempt to reorganize and rebuild Bajor. Bajor is also further divided into different Provinces, which might carry political competences, too.

There are some nationlike factions on Bajor, prominent examples are the Paqu and the Navot. One major faction that opposed the Provisional government, and nearly succeeded in overthrowing it in 2370 was the Alliance for Global Unity.

Bajor first vied for Federation membership in 2373, however this was delayed due to Benjamin Sisko's visions of the impending Dominion invasion of the Alpha Quadrant. Later that year, Bajor signed a nonaggression pact with the Dominion prior to inception of the Dominion War following an endorsement by the Emissary of the Prophets.

Following the defeat of the Dominion in 2375, Bajor was once again in the process of gaining membership into the Federation. Bajor officially joined the Federation in September of 2376.

The Bajoran Wormhole, aka "The Celestial Templa":
The Bajoran Wormhole is regarded by the native Bajorans as the Celestial Temple, home of the Prophets, and the Wormhole Entities are known. The Prophets are non-corporeal, non tempoally linear, energy beings, and appear as half-metre tall glowing hourglass shaped Orbs called Tears of the Prophets. Nine of these Orbs were known to the Bajorans as of the Cardassian invasion, though one more has been identified.
