This included setting up the milice, an adjunct police force which had the primary mission of tracking down and arresting the rebel maquis who were still resisting the German occupation with the help of the British.
In early episodes, there was significant antagonism between the Commander and Lt. Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill), the Starfleet-Maquis convicted traitor who was assisting Voyager in tracking the Maquis ship.
When both the Maquis ship and Voyager are seized by the enigmatic Caretaker entity and thrown to the far side of the galaxy, Torres is taken from the ship for various medical tests.
Captured on his first mission for the Maquis and convicted of treason, Paris is sent to a Federation prison, which is where he is when the viewers of Star Trek: Voyager meet him.
Janeway's task to hold her crew together and to integrate the Maquis and battling the Borg as they tried to return from the Delta Quadrant, gave her a unique perspective.
Maquis crewmember's distaste with Starfleet compelled Chakotay to settle things 'the Maquis way', which involved beating the stuffing out of the complainer.
When you first hear that Voyager's Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) makes a Maquis rebel leader her first officer, you don't see how that could possibly work.
Scierophyllous formations, e.g., garigues, maquis, and forests I
The great mass of the vegetation, however, is of the low-growing type (maquis or garrigue of the western Mediterranean), with small and stiff leaves, and frequently thorny and aromatic, as for example the ilex (Quercus coccifera), Smilax, Cistus, Lentiscus, Calycotome, &c. (2) Next comes, from 1600 to 6500 ft., the mountain region, which may also be called the forest region, still exhibiting sparse woods and isolated trees wherever shelter, moisture and the inhabitants have permitted their growth.
On the lower slopes of the mountains and on all the parts left uncultivated the prevailing form of vegetation consists of a dense growth of shrubs with thick leathery leaves, such as are known to the French as maquis, to the Italians as macchic, and to the Spaniards as monte bajo,2 shrubs which, however much they resemble each other in external appearance, belong botanically to a great variety of families.
