Re: What if Voyager didn't have its aeroshuttle?

Good point. Really, the aeroshuttle is one of Voyager's missed opportunities.
I suppose you could imagine it had systems that being cut off from home they couldn't afford to risk loosing sending out on away missions (especially the frequency they lost shuttles!)

Perhaps an ancillary computer core, independent life-support systems or a secondary warp core, that could all be used as backups, if they had problems with the primary systems. So a should be disposable system that took on a more important role in the Delta Quadrant.
