Story: Preemptive Strike
Written By: Rene Echevarria
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
The Maquis were first created in DS9. I’ll explain more about them in their debut episode from that series later. All you need to know is that they are a dissenting faction of the federation opposed to the Cardassians.
In the end she makes her choice…the Maquis. The final moment of a disappointed and hurt Picard reflecting on her decision is fantastic. What a great episode to finish up the season before the big finale.
