Orb of the Prophets
The Orb of the Prophets are devices that feature in Star Trek.
Over the course of 10,000 years, nine of these Orbs appeared over the skies of the planet Bajor with their existence shaping the theology of the Bajorans civilisation. Five of these relics were found within the Denorios Belt situated within the solar system. They came to be regarded as sacred relics known as the Tears of the Prophets with it being believed that they came from the Prophet's Celestial Temple. (Episode: Emissary)
During the Cardassian occupation, they managed to recover 8 of the Orbs that they began to study but were unable to discern their true nature. Unknown to them, one of the Orbs which was the Orb of Prophecy and Change was kept secretly in the hands of the Bajorans. (Episode: Emissary)
Contact with the Orbs could lead to a person having an experience from their past being relived by them. (Episode: Emissary)
