On the ship's first mission, which required it to find and capture a Maquis vessel that disappeared into the treacherous Badlands, the crews of both Voyager, as well as the Maquis ship it was pursuing, were swept clear across the galaxy and deep into the Delta Quadrant.


Perhaps you would like
"Worst Case Scenario" is the 67th series and 25th and penultimate episode of the third season of Star Trek: Voyager.
Plot

a fictional holodeck simulation in which an unnamed crewperson follows Chakotay as he leads the Maquis crewmembers in a mutiny, taking Voyager out of Starfleet control.

The Maquis and the USS Voyager
When the Maquis crew of the Val Jean and the Starfleet crew of the USS Voyager merged to create one crew in the Delta Quadrant, thoughts of a Maquis mutiny were constant initially.

When B'Elanna Torres attacked Joseph Carey in 2371, a number of Maquis crewmembers, including Seska and Jarvin, were in support of a mutiny if Chakotay was to perform one. This did not go forth. (VOY: "Parallax")
And why didn't it, Chakotay seemed to cowed right from the start by Janeway. For a terrorist Chakotay seemed very passive.

Now Worst case Scenario was a good episode, but here is the problem, it was set in the Holodeck instead of the real world. Its like the Maquis federation tensions had become such a non issue by season 3, the only to explore it was through the Holodeck.

You are just quoting the story bible as a answer to my question, but really how often did Maquis-Federation surface in a way that wasn't contrived, that didn't involve the Holodeck or brainwashing or something. The Maquis didn't have nearly enough of an impact on the series to justify their presence in the first place.
