Not a contradiction at all i am just trying to show people that they will always accept or ignore the issues of most series but when it comes to Voyager its unforgivable they criticize it very harshly while many others were as much or more inconsistent. my main issue is with those ridiculous threads to bash the show indirectly it gets annoying.
The difference is the constant use of the reset button undermined the premise in Voyager. In TNG, the Enterprise can go to a star base for repairs, Voyager can't do that, so if the ship heavily damaged in one episode, but fine in the next, it will be glaring.
Well, if you don't mind me asking(cause I never get an answer to it) Why a much smaller ship that can land can't make repairs on a planets surface vs. one the size of a city that can't enter a planets atmosphere? Wouldn't it be logical to say Voyager is landing on planets to do any repair work? Wouldn't all the resources you need be down on a planet anyway? Didn't they land on an asteroid in "YOH" to do repair work? Didn't Seven argue they shouldn't leave it yet until they were finished?
Well that is a bit of stretch, that Voyager would be able to find a planet with the resources necessary to repair the ship of all damage and that the repair crews are so skilled it would look like no damage has taken place. A ship on its own isn't going to have the resources that ship with access to several star bases, so even if Voyager could do that, it should be a patch job rather then a completely seamless repair job. Voyager should have started to look like a patch work of different fix it solutions, rather then looking the same each time.
