It's stuff like this that makes me wonder what First Officers like Chakotay and Riker do all day, rather than stand around on the bridge striking dramatic poses.
Ideally, the first officer is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of the ship and making sure that everything (including the crew) runs smoothly for the captain. Reviewing countless reports and attending routine staff meetings probably doesn't really make for great dramatic television, which is probably why we rarely (if ever) see XOs doing them onscreen.
