Put your answer in the top left hand margin. Cool?

If Voyager had a fleet of moderately armed vessels support they could have explored more better and kicked ass instead of getting it's sack handed to it every week to build unrealistic dramatic tension.

Besides, it only took one day to build one of these buggers, so why not have the replacements for the frakked up ones already in service to the mission?

I mean, they went through almost 40 shuttles.

bad, bad pilots.

They should build one to replace the shuttles Chuckles destroyed. Also these replacements should have anti-Chuckles technolgy at the helm to prevent future mishaps.
Is it just me or do the controls of the flyer change? When its Tom pilioting its the sticks and switchs. Other times its panels infront and the switchs and I swear at one point it's just panels.

Perhaps they are changeable.

Infinite.

After all, they had the ability to infinitely repair any damage to Voyager itself. They should have also, therefore, had the ability to build countless Delta Fliers.

As for the controls. I think the original Delta Flyer had sticks and switches based on Paris' Captain Proton program. When it was destroyed in "Unimatrix Zero" they rebuilt it, but with standard Starfleet panel controls. Right?

You're right, they could have built a freaking armada and conquered the delta quadrant with the apparently infinite supplies they had.

Re: How many Delta Fliers should they have Built?

If it takes three days to build the most advanced Federation shuttle we have ever seen, than why not just build a Defiant with borg upgrades?

actually, why doesn't DS9 have enough parts and resources to crank out more Defiant Class ships.
