"I would order them to go out and kill Bajoran scum. And they'd do it – they murdered them! And they came back covered in blood. But they felt clean. Now why did they feel that way, Major? Because they were clean."
- Aamin Marritza, describing the Gallitep labor camp, while impersonating Gul Darhe'el (DS9: "Duet")

A genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group, perpetrated for ideological, religious, or political reasons.

Methods of genocide might include:

  • Murdering members of the targeted group outright
  • Forcing the group to live under conditions that will eventually lead to their death through starvation, exhaustion, illness, or injury
  • Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group, for example, forced sterilization

One of the best known examples of genocide occurred during the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor. The occupation began a conquest for natural resources. The Cardassians treated the Bajorans as slave labor and interned much of the population in labor camps. However, over the course of forty years, the Cardassians' disdain for the Bajorans led to them deliberately imposing such conditions in these camps that the Bajorans interned in them quickly died. By the Occupation's end, millions of Bajorans had died in these camps, although the exact count is uncertain. (DS9: "Duet")
