[be]cause it was armed with 14 phaser arrays and had 4 torp launchers lol,galaxy class has 12 arrays and 2 launchers. ur gonna say a galaxy can fire more maybe ...
We've seen the Enterprise fire ten torpedoes at once, out of a single tube, indicating that her tubes possess a larger diameter.

And the number of phaser strips has to do with covering firing arcs, and nothing to do with fire power. You can fire from a single "spot' on one strip with 100% of available power, or ten spots simultaneously with 10% power. If the Voyager possessed 120 strips, that would not give her 10 time the fire power of a Enterprise.

coz voy was always using torp as a last resort since they were 70 years away from the nearest starbase
And apparently had the manufacturing ability to make more.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Voyager fired them one at a time.

Hey, remember when the Enterprise's chief medical officer (while in command) did that for the first time, years before Voyager did?

While the Enterprise's shield survived an attack from a Borg full size cube.

Verbal statements by the production staff, while interesting, are non-canon.

Hardly, the Enterprise greater size requires a larger warp field enclosure, and therefor greater power generation. Power that if feed into the weapons system (or other systems) would exceed Voyager generation capacity.

Owing to it small size and weight, Voyager is faster, and likely more maneuverable. Because of it's small warp field envelope, Voyager's warp core can produce less power and reach higher speeds. But that also mean less power for all those phaser strips.


Yet in spite of this "fact," the Enterprise can cruise for long periods of time at warp speed, while the Voyager for some reason is frequently seen in the middle of interstellar space traveling at impulse speeds (no pretty streaky lights).

The AIM 7 (sparrow) missile has a 88 pound warhead, a AIM 9 (sidewinder) missile has a 20.8 pound warhead.

Simply having a higher number, doesn't automatically indicate a more powerful weapon. The Voyager torpedoes might carry a different model number, because her torpedo tubes are smaller.

If Voyager can carry them, likely other Starfleet ships can carry them as well. Various types of US Navy submarines carry the same model of torpedo.

Would Picard, Kirk or Sisko have fallen for the same trick?

Yes, quite old.

stated on screen to be explorer type ships
the majority of Starfleet starship are "multi-mission.

all of those things require a lot of power and drain to keep them active
We've seen LaForge divert power, and turn off unnecessary systems before.

you just hate the show admit it ur turning this into TNG vs VOY not worth my time.

<<Owing to it small size and weight, Voyager is faster, and likely more maneuverable. Because of it's small warp field envelope, Voyager's warp core can produce less power and reach higher speeds.
