Name: Maquis 789
Captain: Cal Hudson
Background: Cal Hudson met up with the Defiant at the request of Benjamin Sisko when his son (and several of his crew) had gone missing on Maurer IV, near the Badlands. Hudson confirmed to Sisko that there had been a splinter group of the Maquis attempting to buy weapons from a third party, which turned out the be the Romulans. Hudson and 789 posed as the buyer and met up with a Romulan cargo ship at specified coordinates. The Romulans sussed out that they were being set up when they picked up Defiant’s antiproton scan and a support warbird decloaked. That warbird claimed to be engaged in rescue ops on Maurer IV, which Sisko would aid. The warbird later briefly engaged the Defiant before standing down, instead opting to beam out the crew of the cargo ship and destroying it. Sensing their involvement at an end, Hudson order his ship to return to the badlands.
