And honestly, it would be one seriously lame show if they did nothing but fly through space ignoring everything around them except whenever they needed to stop somewhere for supplies. This is Star Trek, investigating weird stuff is what they do.
What I was trying to get across was that some of the Maquis should have been angry that Janeway was wasting time and resources stopping at random planets and studying spacial anomalies. I like those stories just as much as the next guy, but from the standpoint of a Maquis that kind of stuff should have looked like a waste of time. All of the constant delays that Janeway was responsible for should have created more conflict than it did.
