For instance, who do you think was (a) best suited to being in the Maquis, and (b) did the best job of it? And an added supplemental bonus question, for the hell of it, is there another character you think would have done well as a Maquis?

I chose Eddington because he was able to fool the entire command crew of Deep Space Nine including Odo. They should have done an episode or 2 from the Maquis point of view.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

This is a difficult one , and part of that is the question ? The most lethal Maquis were Michael Eddington and Kassidy Yates . But , the best Maquis were probably Chakotay and B'elanna Torres because of their level-headedness and skills . Though , my favorite Maquis is Tom Riker (and Ro Laren)!

LOL... I don't think it's surprising that I chose B'Elanna, but I also think Eddington was great!

Thing about Chakotay is that two of his close confidantes (Seska and Tuvok) turned out to be spies for two different factions, and he never caught on.

On Voyager he asks Tuvok I think it was, "Was anyone onboard that ship working for me?" That about sums up his Maquis career.

Chakotay had to be the worst Maquis.  I think a good resistance fighter has to be one that uses subterfuge well, Eddington and Tom Riker, for instance.  They need a good poker face, Cassidey Yates.  Chakotay's Mike Tyson tattoo makes him stand out too much to be an infiltrator.

The Maquis on VOY were awful


They were either boring (Chakotay), psychopaths (Suder, Jonas, Seska), suffering from permanent PMS (Torres) or complete morons (those fools from "Learning Curve").


The best Maquis was Michael Eddington, by far.

Eddington was the best.  I feel like he really had the most conviction of any of the Maquis we've seen.

You all know the term Maquis translates roughly as The Bush don't you?

"Maquis" means "bush?"


No wonder I find the Maquis so appealing.

Yes. The name is taken from the French Resistance fighters of WW2. These guys often fought on rough terrain covered with scrub and bushes. Hence the name. The strict pronounciation would be the thicket - but it amounts to the same thing. These Maquisards operated in conjunction with the British SOE (who supplied them) and were very brave freedom fighters - putting paid to the notion that the only French war industry at the time was making white flags. During D-Day they helped slow down the German mobilisation for defence ...
