For the Federation-born colonists organized against the Cardassian occupation, please see Maquis.

Maques was the senior diplomat of a Cairn delegation on the USS Enterprise-D in 2370. He was a widower and raised his daughter Hedril alone.

Lwaxana Troi taught him verbal communication so that he could better interact with non-telepathic species as the Cairn used telepathic means as their forms of communication. She also tried to spark some romantic involvement between Maques and her daughter. Maques helped Lwaxana confront a painful memory from her past, one that was causing brain damage and killing her. (TNG: "Dark Page")

Maques was played by Norman Large.
According to the script, Maques was pronounced as "MAKE-wheeze".
