The Bajoran Incident

Dedication: To all Trekkies who fight for Bajor, I salute you! Let's do it together.

On 5-28-21, I became obsessed with Bajor. Bajor was the inhabited eleventh planet of the Bajoran system. This system was located in the Bajor sector, in the Alpha Quadrant. This was the largest planet in the system and had five moons, including Derna and Jeraddo. The planet was the homeworld of the Bajorans, a warp-capable humanoid species. After decades of Cardassian rule, the planet regained its independence and became affiliated with the United Federation of Planets in 2369. My mom noticed this when I drew a picture of a Kai, the Bajoran religious leader. She got angry at me, and yelled. I began to get crazed about getting rid of my “Star Trek” stuff. The iconic series “Star Trek” follows the crew of the starship USS Enterprise as it completes its missions in space in the 23rd century. Captain James T. Kirk — along with half- human/half-Vulcan science officer Spock, ship Dr. “Bones” McCoy, Ensign Pavel Chekov, communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura, helmsman Lt. Hikaru Sulu and chief engineer Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery “Scotty” Scott — confront strange alien races, friendly and hostile alike, as they explore unknown worlds. My mom was going to show someone. I cried, knowing I would hate Bajor forever now. There was no name for this event when it happened. Now, it’s called The Bajoran Incident in history, forever, officially.
