Bajor's architecture looks a lot like a frenetic elaboration/multiplication of the Shrine of the Bab, and the Bajoran religion centers around "prophets" who are more than merely human. At the same time there are Tibetan Buddhist strains too, like the office of Kai (the Dalai Lama?) and the whole theme of a religious people trying to escape the subjugation of a military-led empire (the Cardassians). Sisko is the Emissary, maybe that is like the office of Guardian in the Baha'is?
