So, re-reading the prologue of Fearful Symmetry, I saw another vista in the text of an alternate universe worth speculating on, the celestial union. I wonder, how it might have come to be, a spiritually minded, Bajoran centered Alpha Quadrant. An interesting contrast to the secular earth dominated federation. Anyway, thoughts on how this Celestial Union came to be? Bajoran conquest, or perhaps proselytization of the Alpha Quadrant? I find the concept really riveting and fascinating. Disclaimer: This is not a story idea, and any speculation should not be taken as ideas given. Anyway, thoughts, speculation, suggestions on how this Celestial Union came to be, and what it might be like as a polity?
