Wormhole, Bajoran

Discovered on Stardate 46379.1 by Deep Space Nine science officer Jadzia Dax, the Bajoran Wormhole was the first and only completely stable wormhole known to the Federation, with either end remaining at a fixed point in space.[1]

This “tunnel”, approximately 90,000 light years long, connects the Alpha to the Gamma Quadrant with the same time coordinates, providing virtually instantaneous and reciprocal access. The wormhole is not actually of natural origin, having been artificially created by a race of aliens who lived there, and were not subject to time in a linear fashion.[1]

In the Bajoran religion, the wormhole was worshipped as the Celestial Temple of the Prophets, its builders, who sent out Orbs as contact devices. Following the discovery of the wormhole, Deep Space Nine was moved from Bajor‘s orbit to be closer to the phenomenon.[1]
