Much of what was established on TNG and DS9 suggested that the Bajoran civilization predates human civilizations by many milenia. That would suggest the emergence of homo erectus as much as 1.9 million years ago. Yet, they seemingly chose to remain in their little corner of the galaxy. At some point, they achieved a limited means of space travel during Earth's 16th Century AD and eventually interstellar travel. Based where humanity had progressed in terms of space travel as seen on Star Trek: Enterprise, the Bajorans achieved a 22nd Century level of technological development with regard to interstellar travel. Yet, seemingly they went no further based on Dukat's retrospective appraisal of the Bajorans at the beginning of the Occupation. And by extension, the Federation is technologically at least a century ahead of the Bajorans. So what are everybody else's thoughts on this.
