For the mirror universe counterpart, see Les Misérables (mirror).

Les Misérables was a novel by the French author Victor Hugo which was published in 1862.

The Picard family owned a rare print copy of Les Misérables which was kept at their ancestral home in La Barre. Jean-Luc Picard showed the novel to Jake Sisko in 2372. (DS9 novel: Trapped in Time)

Les Misérables was one of Michael Eddington's favorite novels. In 2373, Eddington compared himself to Jean Valjean and Benjamin Sisko to Inspector Javert, the policeman who pursued Valjean for simply stealing a loaf of bread, during Sisko's pursuit of the Maquis leader. (DS9 episode: "For the Uniform")

Captain Sisko later reflected that Eddington's capture may have destroyed his illusion of being like the character in Les Misérables. (DS9 novel: The Badlands, Part IV)
