Re: So many horrible characters aboard the Voyager

I find VOY very irritating as they missed the mark on so many things, including the characters.

The crew accepted their situation too easily, with no major morale or emotional problems being lost and in all likelihood never seeing their families and loved ones again. All the Starfleet-Maquis 'tension' never came to anything and fizzled out after a couple of years. They took to firing at every alien and ship they encountered, rarely making any friends along the way, though despite getting their asses kicked on a regular basis the ship was always pristine, fully functional and they had all the creature comforts.

They had it far too easy, they could have been on a deep space mission in the alpha quadrant for all the peril they faced, as it was always pretty obvious they would make it through--even more so after Borg tech saved the day every week.

The PTB never took any chances or risks, favouring the reset button over any real character development or something that would upset the status quo.
