Encyclopedia > Maquis (Star Trek)

In the fictional Star Trek universe, the Maquis were a resistance movement made mostly of humans that refused to give up the colony planets that they lived on after they were ceded to the Cardassians as part of the treaty to end the war between the Federation and the Cardassian Union. They commit terrorist or revolutionary acts against the Cardassians (the Maquis usually avoided attacking Federation ships directly, preferring to warn them to get out of the way). The Maquis were almost entirely wiped out by the Dominion. Exceptions were the Maquis who had joined the crew of the USS Voyager, and a few members of the movement who had been captured and were in Federation prisons.

Some critics feel that the Maquis was a "cheap" concept, which took the custom of Star Trek having modern day political parallels too far. To some, the fact that the Federation would've willingly relocated the inhabitants of all of the ceded planets to any of several thousand planets still under Federation law, where they could've easily recreated the societies of their home colonies, made the Maquis decision to wage war on behalf of occupied planets instead of accepting freely offered homes on others appear rather petty if not downright irrational. In effect, they were endangering peaceful relations between the Federation and the Cardassians, and thereby the lives of billions, rather than accept painless and potentially beneficial relocation from planets that had been uninhabited until the Federation colonized them in the first place.


In the novelization of the last episodes of Voyager, it was revealed that most of the Maquis contingent on the ship had accepted a Federation offer of full amnesty, and had opted to rejoin Starfleet and fight against the Dominion. This obviously is not canon, but gives an interesting view of the final fate of the Maquis.

The Star Trek Maquis were likely named for the French Resistance group who countered the Nazi occupation (see Maquis (WW2)). A later Voyager episode The Killing Game, may seem to some to confirm this. The episode is set in World War II France and features the French resistance prominently.
