    I'm putting together something about Voyager, can someone help me out? I need to know how many times Voyager made use of the main deflector to escape or fix or for whatever plot reasons

    Yawn...

    Yes, Voyager overused the main deflector for lots of technobabble solutions.

    Blah, blah, blah...

    TNG/DS9 used technobabble to enhance the plot. VOY used technobabble AS the plot. So yeah...

    What are you going to make?

    "This show that finished over a decade ago used the main deflector too much".

    Wow.

    Aren't there better ways of spending your time? And this is coming from a man posting on a Star Trek forum.

    Research usually doesn't involve asking everyone else to do the work for you.

    Yeah. That too.

    But since you've caught me in a festive mood:

    Scroll down to the Voyager bit and it tells you what you need to know.

    Merry Christmas.

    No, i was wathing DS9 Tears of the Prophets today and they won the First Battle of Chintoka buy using the Defian'ts deflector. It was the first time they'd done so since season 4 fighiting the Dominion in a gas giant, just got me to thinking that Voyager always escape with the deflector dish. 11 times by the way. Thanks fo your help

    Eleven times? I had no idea it was that many! It's the swiss army knife of spaceship parts.
