Re: Should Chakotay have been more of a "bad ass"

No! No! And no again!

Chakotay was good as he was.

In fact, we do have two possibilities:

1. A Maquis Commander who realize that the best chance for him and his Maquis fellows to get home is to join Voyager, play by the rules and have a decent chance to come home in the future.

2. A whiny crybaby who ruins all possibilities for the Maquis on the ship to have a possibility to come home and maybe be paroled when they do arrive home.

We can also compare the both crews on Voyager with the horrible mix of people on the starship Destiny in Stargate Universe:

Voyager: Two crews led by a smart Starfleet Captain and a smart Maquis commander who realized that cooperation between the crews is the only way to survive and get home.

Destiny: Two crews, the military and the civilians who spent most of their time arguing, fighting, manipulating and whining, led by persons who were hardly capable of commanding and steering a tricycle.

No surprise that Voyager managed to get home and Destiny didn't.
Who'd let that cat in here?
