The French Resistance was an underground movement opposing the German occupation of France during World War II.

In a holoprogram set in the French village of Sainte Claire in September 1944, several characters, including Brigitte, Mademoiselle de Neuf, and two more (a bartender, played by Tuvok, and a baker acting as courier, played by Neelix) were members of the local Resistance movement, which was led by Katrine.

The resistance had been scrutinizing German troop movements since the Occupation, focusing on doing this and remaining undetected as opposed to more violent tactics. They used the restaurant Le Coeur de Lion as a base, and relayed information to the Allies via radio from there. The cell received messages from Allied High Command via messages encrypted in British radio transmissions, decrypted using code keys physically smuggled in.

They had also hidden weapons across the city, the guns mostly stolen from the German Army and the explosives bought on the black market. (VOY: "The Killing Game, Part II")

When US troops attacked the city, the Resistance was supposed to disable German communications and help the Americans free Sainte Claire. (VOY: "The Killing Game", "The Killing Game, Part II")

To Commandant Karr, however, Katrine claimed that the Resistance may have been active in Paris, but not in a small town like Sainte Claire. (VOY: "The Killing Game")

One part of the French resistance was called the "Maquis," a name which was adopted by the 24th century movement.
"French Resistance" was, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 285), the name of the holodeck simulation program in "The Killing Game".
In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel Trapped in Time, the French Resistance help Miles O'Brien, Jake Sisko, and Nog find a Changeling posing as a Nazi officer.
