The Bajoran Resistance was a Bajoran armed resistance movement that was formed on Bajor during the occupation by the Cardassian Union in the 24th century.

HistoryEdit

Although there had been no resistance when the Cardassians arrived in 2318, years of slavery, torture, and oppression led many Bajorans to fight back against the occupation forces. One Resistance tactic was to land their ships on asteroids around Bajor and ride them to their targets, undetected as anything other than asteroids. Different resistance cells were established which would operate independently and work to raid and sabotage Cardassian facilities and force them from the planet. The Cardassian response to the rising terrorism was to execute all suspected resistance members and make an example of them, but this only made matters worse. The Resistance was in operation by 2333 and had began guerrilla attacks against Cardassian military units. The Prefect of Bajor, Gul Monor, was concerned a similar group might be formed on Raknal V, the centre of the Betreka Nebula Incident. Monor also condemned the Cardassian Central Command for believing that the Bajoran people's religion would discourage the Bajorans from attacking the Cardassian forces.

Several resistance cells were established, which would operate independently and work on raiding and sabotaging Cardassian facilities in an attempt to force them out of the planet. One of these was the Shakaar resistance cell which Kira Nerys was part of. The Cardassian response to the rising terrorism was to execute all suspected resistance members and make an example of them, but this only made matters worse.

By 2369, the Cardassians were forced to withdraw from Bajor due to a combination of political pressure from the Detapa Council and the Federation and the strain on their resources from fighting the Resistance and Starfleet after an unrelated string of border conflicts in the 2350s and 2360s. With Bajor now free, many resistance members returned to normal lives on Bajor or joined the newly formed Bajoran Militia, but some extreme segments, such as the Kohn-Ma, continued to fight against the Cardassians for some time after.

By the 2390s it had become traditional for serving members of the Militia to salute any former member of the Resistance, regardless of the former fighter's current station or rank.
