In 2369, following the Cardassian withdrawal from the
Bajoran Sector, Sisko was promoted to Commander and assigned as commanding
officer of Deep Space 9. The old Cardassian station, built during the
Occupation of Bajor, was transferred to Bajoran control and the Bajoran

Kai Opaka told Sisko that he was the Emissary of the Prophets, the
religious leader promised by the prophets as the one who would save Bajor
by finding the Celestial Temple of the Prophets, which he did in 2369 with
the discovery of the Bajoran Wormhole in the Denorios Belt in the Bajoran
System. The station was then moved from orbit around Bajor to the mouth of
the wormhole, which connects the Alpha and Gamma Quadrants.

Cardassia, proving that the Bajorans did the same 800 years prior. In
