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.
But this was nothing new, it happened to Kirk and Picard.

All the Starfleet-Maquis 'tension' never came to anything and fizzled out after a couple of years.
Realistically, the tensions wouldn't have lasted more than a season and a half anyways.

They took to firing at every alien and ship they encountered, rarely making any friends along the way,
Yeah, mistake.

though despite getting their asses kicked on a regular basis the ship was always pristine, fully functional and they had all the creature comforts.
So the ship is easier to maintain than everyone assumed?

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.
The show lacked a plot beyond "Lost in Space". If it had one, then there'd be more room for that stuff.
