Re: When did voyager go wrong?

What? When was "no repairs ever" a premise of the show? Clearly repairs were made between episodes, as evidenced by the nearly complete destruction of the Bridge in "Deadlock".
And everyone always got mad whenever that happened (repairs to the ship), which means they didn't want to the ship to ever be able to do repairs.

Again, clearly that wasn't the premise, since the pilot episode itself had Neelix and Kes offer support, and they're definitely not Starfleet. Not to mention the other episodes where the stop at alien space stations for resupply.
Why do you think the audience keeps complaining about how Voyager abandoned its' premise in the pilot?

But the Species 8472 aliens weren't unstoppable for Janeway and her crew, so why not let the badass aliens take out the Borg, then Janeway can stop the badass aliens.
They wouldn't have been able to stop them without the Borg's help in the first place.

You don't know that, you're just feeling persecuted.
I DO know that, because TNG did similar things and no one minded. They introduced the Borg, did one big story and a few minor ones and no one cared. VOY introduced various other aliens like the 8472, did one big story and a few minor ones and all it gets are complaints.

Were they out to destroy all life in our Universe, or were they just intent on killing all Borg?
All life. Otherwise the one that spoke to Kes wouldn't have said "The Weak shall perish".

Until Janeway and company stumbled into the fight, did the big badass aliens even know there was more than one species in this Universe?
Yes.

Ah, but in that episode, no one is blowing up planets. The scale is quite different - the characters are working together against a common enemy (same premise), but there's more character interactions and the scale of jeopardy is different.
No, it was made clear that if not stopped the renegade Jem'Hadar would've conquered the entire Dominion in a year and then gone after everyone else. That's why Sisko helped.
