Chakotay especially was under-used and not presented like the pirate he should have been.
Chakotay was anything but a pirate. He was a man of conscience who left Starfleet and joined the Maquis, not for personal gain, but because he believed it was the only way to protect his homeworld and his tribe. He embraced the ideals of Starfleet; he simply felt that Starfleet itself has fallen short of them.
What I'm sying is I felt he should have been more of a free spirit. Ethical, more, and non-selfish, yes but also more willing to stand up to Janeway when he felt she was wrong. He left Starfleet because he felt starfleet had lost its moral compass and had betrayed his people. i wanted to see him stand up to Janeway more, at least in private. There could have been some excellent debates between them such as whether or not to go after the omega particle but instead he always seemed to be a yes man.
