Re: Federation Versus The Romulan Empire

Actually, the Maquis would be just the sort to be prepared to flee at a moment's notice - they know they are being hunted, after all.

And the population of the planet apparently was quite low, as is typical of colonies in DS9 and TNG: Eddington said that Sisko's actions would turn hundreds of thousands into refugees if Sisko eliminated every Maquis colony out there! Since there apparently are more than two such colonies out there, we're talking about populations numbered in mere thousands...

"Nobody died" might thus be a good approximation, although I suspect there would have been some less hardy individuals, like kids and grannies, who either died of Sisko's toxins or were trampled to death in the evacuation.
