Has Ben Maxwell appeared in any novels? Can't recall.
Sadly, no. He appeared only on screen on TNG's "The Wounded." Excellent episode, BTW. It's a shame that he was not brought back on DS9 as a Maquis Officer or at least a Maquis sympathizer.
Hard to be a Maquis while being incarcerated in a Federation prison...
Very true. I had hoped that once the Dominion War was declared, Starfleet would've realized that Maxwell was right and they would've commuted his sentence. A pact could've been formed with the surviving Maquis, etc. We might've seen Tom Riker again. Still, I have no complaints about DS9 and the way the writers handles the DW arc. It was excellent television.
