Re: So many horrible characters aboard the Voyager
But one good thing about the Maquis, is that they can reasonably be expected to be more reconciled to not getting back to a Federation prison more quickly. Having half the crew with mixed feelings about getting home kept the tone much lighter I think.
Kim was the designated angster about not getting home. Given how unpopular this was, it is really hard to understand how people can say/assume/imply that the entire crew should have been more like that.
Morals are what you do to other people. Other people, what we call society, are essential to human happiness. Therefore, morals are the path to happiness. My morals, your happiness; your morals, my happiness: It's a fair trade.
