Re: The Maquis or the Federation?
if Sisko's numerous colonists about those in the DMZ still being "Federation Citizens", why did the Federation not step in and protect the interests of their citizens once evidence of Cardassian violation of the treaty came to light?
IIRC, the colonists rejected Federation aid. They didn't consider themselves Federation citizens anymore. Eddington said they were about to declare independence.
