Re: Was Lt. Carey screwed over in Voyager?
I think allowing us to have more insight into how secondary characters felt regarding developments aboard the ship might have done a lot to address concerns that tensions between Starfleet and the Maquis died off too quickly.
By no means am I endorsing the idea of more Starfleet defiance a la "Prime Factors", but just to see that everyone wasn't in agreement all of the time, even (or perhaps especially) if that never reached the command level, would have made me appreciate the show a bit more.
Oooh, look at me and my long sentences.
