Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?
But the Federation/Starfleet would have thousands of industrial replciators to call upon. It was likely DSN itself was equipped with at least one industrial replciator in order to serve as a repair facility.
It is highly improbable that Vouyager would have an industrial replicator to replicate all those parts and hull plates they needed week in week out.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
