Gateway Freedom Fighters

The Gateway Freedom Fighters are Federation born colonists who reside in the Gateway Sector. Discontent with Sindareen and Cardassians occupation of their home sector, the Freedom Fighters take military action against both alien races. Similar to the Maquis (former organization that opposed the Cardassians), the Freedom Fighters gained sympathy from surviving Maquis members, some of which joined the Freedom Fighters’ cause.

But unlike the Maquis, the Gateway Freedom Fighters seek assistance from the Federation of Planets, particularly military support. However; due to the volatile situation in the Gateway Sector, the Federation opts for peace with the other two nations, establishing a compromise. The Gateway Sector colonists feel there should be no compromise and want both the Sindareen and Cardassians driven out of the Gateway Sector, thus taking military action in their own hands.

The Federation has taken responsibly for the Freedom Fighters’ actions, and does not condone their behavior. The Federation considers the Freedom Fighters an internal security problem and will deal with it accordingly. However, because the Freedom Fighters actions are against the Cardassians and Sindareen, both governments feel they have viable claims to “handle” the Freedom Fighters themselves, using military action against them in necessary, thus creating a Mexican Standoff between the three governments.
