Bajorans are a humanoid species primarily residing on the world of Bajor which is located on the edge of Federation and Cardassian space. Bajorans are a playable race in Star Trek Online, and belong to the Federation faction.
Bajorans appear nearly identical to Humans except for several distinguishable horizontal creases across the bridge of their nose. There are, however, some internal differences.
Bajorans are very spiritual people. Their beliefs center around the Prophets (who reside in the Celestial Temple or Bajoran Wormhole, and are therefore sometimes referred to as Wormhole Aliens by non-Bajorans) and their adversaries, the Pah-wraith (outcast Prophets, now resident in the Fire Caves). Some Bajoran shrines and monasteries are in possession of Orbs, which are artifacts of great power created by the Prophets; coming into physical contact with an Orb often triggers visions, even among non-Bajorans.
Bajorans typically wear an earring on their right ear as a symbol of their beliefs. This earring also carries the symbol of their family name and their D'jarra. D'jarras were a vital part of their social hierarchy before the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. This practice was abandoned once the Bajorans sought acceptance into the Federation after regaining their independence from the Cardassians.
Bajoran names are traditionally given with their family name (surname) preceding their given name. Those who hold a religious or military title are commonly adressed by their title followed by their family name (surname) only, except on formal occassions, when their entire name is used. Bajorans do not use a third or "middle" name.
Bajorans have had space-flight technology for at least 850 years. There is evidence of at least one Bajoran vessel of that time; a solar-sail craft which was accidentally accelerated to warp speed and crashed on Cardassia. This incident was covered up by the Cardassian government until it was recreated by a replica vessel under the command of Benjamin Sisko 800 years later, in the 2360s.
Clothing and Equipment
The Bajoran Militia uniform is available in the C-Store for use by Federation characters; this pack also includes a Bajoran combadge, rank insignia, belt, and boots. The Deep Space Nine bundle includes a Bajoran Militia phaser pistol and a Bajoran Militia phaser rifle.
Bajoran religious figures (known variously as Prylars, Vedeks, and their religious leader, the Kai) also wear distinctive clothing. The Deep Space Nine bundle includes the robes and headdress traditionally worn by Bajoran Vedeks. A Bajoran religious badge is also available from the First Contact Day Badge Box.
- Species trait: Bajorans are a deeply spiritual race dedicated to their gods, the Prophets. Their spiritualism and creativity inspires them to find new and improved ways to heal themselves and their allies.
