The Second Battle of Bajor was the opening battle of the Dominion War, in which the combined forces of the Dominion and the Cardassian Union, led by Gul Dukat, launched an assault on the Federation-held starbase Deep Space 9, in orbit around Bajor. Although the station was captured by the Dominion, the battle was a strategic victory for the Federation because they successfully mined the Bajoran Wormhole, preventing the Dominion from sending reinforcements to join the war from the Gamma Quadrant.

Also, the Dominion's diversion of forces away from their front lines to attack the station enabled a Federation-Klingon fleet to destroy vital Dominion shipyards.
