Since I have some sympathy for the Maquis, I 've often thought about that.
I think that I would have followed Chakotay's example in this case. Mostly because there were no other options. Both Voyager and the Maquis on Chakotay's ship were stuck in the Delta Quadrant and just had to co-operate to get home.
I would have tried to do my best of the situation, however me being me would probably have made me end up in Tuvok's class as well.
