From the Maquis perspective, the Federation abandoned their colonies.

There should have been a lot more resentment among the Maquis than we saw.
This is as assumption too, you have a group of people with a lot the same background facing a common enemy. That can level all kinds of differences in a hurry.
Of course it's all assumption.

As are your assumptions that they'd all get along hunky dory.

However, mine is based on an understanding of history. There's still a lot of resentment in Indian Country over broken treaties--a hundred years later. That's not an assumption. That's fact.
I agree with most of what you have said, except the last part. Again you are assuming that those resentments are still festering after another three hundred years and that isn't very realistic. However this is also an assumption based on history.

Look at it this way, the British and the Scottish have been at odds dating back to Robert the Bruce in the 13 hundreds. However when Germany threatened them in the middle twentieth century, they had a very common enemy and banded together. Heck even the Americans bonded with the English at the same time and our argument with England was less than two hundred years old.
