In the alternate mirror universe, the Maquis were a highly-organized resistance movement that strongly-opposed the Terran Empire in the late 23rd century and for much of the 24th century. Made of Terrans, Romulans, Remans, Klingons, Cardassians, Bajorans, Betazoids, Trills, Orions, Vulcans, Andorians and other species who felt betrayed in some way by the Empire.

History[]

Established by Sarek of Vulcan and Marlena Moreau in the late 2280s, the Maquis' goal was ensure that Spock's plans to reform the Empire into a republic, thus granting the citizens of the Empire the right to vote and question their superiors creating a free society akin to the primary universe's United Federation of Planets. Although Spock died in 2277 shortly before he attempted to assassinate Empress Sarah Sato and declare himself Emperor, Marlena vowed to continue with her husband's work.

The movement started in a very limited way, with raids being launched from Vulcan against Terran cargo convoys and supply runs. However, the Maquis were forced to move off planet at the behest of Sarek and the Vulcan High Command who feared that the Terrans would launch an attack against the planet. In order to ensure the survival of her movement, Marlena had the movement split into various cells which would spread out across the Empire and launch attacks while hiding in various nebulae, asteroid belts or hollowed out moons.

By the mid-2290s, the Maquis was made up of members from various species, including disheartened Terrans, Klingons who were disgusted with the recently formed alliance between the Terrans and the Klingon Empire and Romulans who was sick of their leaders neutral ambivalence to the Terrans. Unfortunately, Marlena was killed during a raid on Rigel IV in 2298, but Sarek continued to lead the resistance with the various cell leaders forming a "ruling council".

Over the next forty years, the Maquis' ranks began to swell as military officers who had managed to escape from the invasions of Cardassia and Romulus defected and brought any warships they could get their hands on. With the collapse of the Romulan Star Empire, members of the Tal Shiar and the Obsidian Order formed a new intelligence agency which worked to give the Maquis their best advantage over the Empire.

In 2371, Captain Kathryn Janeway ordered Lieutenant Commander Typhuss James Halliwell to spy on the Maquis for the Empire. In early 2377, Lieutenant Commander Halliwell was discovered by the Maquis as a spy for the Terran Empire. Captain Janeway and Voyager went to rescue Typhuss from the Maquis. Three hours later Voyager rescued Typhuss from the Maquis.

By the 2370s, the Maquis was a huge force to be reckoned with across the Alpha Quadrant as was regarded by some as an empire in its own right. By this time the Maquis were bold enough to actively board and capture Imperial Starfleet vessels and repatriate them into their own fleet.

Their boldest capture came in 2374 when Captain Selok with support from Intelligence operatives engineered the capture of the prototype Prometheus-class warship, the ISS Prometheus. Following their safe return to Maquis territory, Selok had the Prometheus made the Maquis flagship renamed her IRS Enterprise in honor of Spock's old starship command. Over the course of the next five years, the Enterprise led numerous raids and campaigns against Terran Imperial targets, including Cestus III and Sherman's Planet.

In 2383, Shakaar Edon took over as leader of the Bajora cell after Major Kira leaves with Captain Kira to go to his universe, to be free. In 2384, Kira requested to return to her universe to get Seska, Ezri Tigan and Jadzia Dax, so they can be free from the Terran Empire too, Kira and Typhuss were able to bring them back to the primary universe.
