Jean Valjean was the main character in Victor Hugo's novel, Les Misérables.

Michael Eddington compared himself to Valjean and Benjamin Sisko to Valjean's nemesis Inspector Javert. Javert pursued Valjean for a menial crime, just as Eddington believed Sisko did of him. (DS9: "For the Uniform")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 450), Jean Valjean was the namesake of the Maquis raider Val Jean. According to the STE, the ship's name is a typographical error, as it was incorrectly spelled as Val Jean.
