The Orb 27: It's Easy To Be a Saint In Paradise / by Trek fm

The Maquis.

They were created for Voyager, but it was DS9 that really fleshed out the story of this group of settlers caught in the middle of a conflict between the Federation and Cardassia. In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing examine how governments forget the little people when making concessions to enemies, how the blind eye of the Federation Council led to an insurgency that cost the lives of many innocent people, and how the Maquis found themselves in a position of real life that was beyond the imagination of the decision makers sitting comfortably back on Earth.
