Is Neelix really supposed to be a survival expert?

Is Neelix really supposed to be a survival expert? He doesn't seem very good at it:

Well, even as a guy who doesn't like Neelix, sfdebris is hardly an objective source, however funny he may be.

Neelix just always struck me as the guy who talked up his resume constantly to land him a job he has no idea how to perform. Basically he BS's his way through life.

Sfdebris may not be objective, but he does have a point. After everything that happened during Basics, the fact that Neelix was not at least confinned to kitchen duties or just booted off the ship is mind boggling.

Not that I disagree, but Janeway's pandering to Neelix for whatever reason isn't even the worst of her command decisions. Personally I wouldn't have trusted him to even cook my food after that crap he pulled in Caretaker with lying to the crew and getting them captured to rescue Kes from the Kazon. Did it not even occur to him to just ask and the good guys would probably have helped him?

Yah he's a survival expert of himself.

He was marginally better than nothing as far as being able to give Janeway one sentence descriptions of new races for at least a chunk of the Delta quadrant.

Re: Is Neelix really supposed to be a survival expert?

No he didn't.

The little kitchen rat ran.

Good riddance he said!

Earth he said.

Constantly picking fights with the Borg he said.

frack that he said.

I found me some prime space cooze he said.

And she has a beard, like a woman is supposed to he said!

All these bald faced women for 7 years thinking they're pretty he said.

Irrational, delusional slappers he said.

Seven years without a hard on he said.

How the hell did I stay on that ship so damn long he said.

He survived 6.9 series.

Same as Joe.

That's why he's so great in The Cloud. Way he marches into Janeway's office and rants about how they're always going round poking in some new phenomena without regard for the consequences. What happened to that tart Neelix? I miss him.

Janeway probably did castrate him after that little display. That would explain why he spent the next six seasons doting on Janeway.

I bet they can download a library like Tom Paris slept with my wife race or others. At least a library cannot destroy Voyager with cheese.

By the way sfdebris a fair reviewer he gave high ratings to good episodes.
