It's true! Kirk, Picard, Janeway, even Sisko, kept going into situations where they knew they were outgunned without calling in any backup, because fuck logic. Archer, on the other hand, when he was going after a murderous race with help from the future, at least took a platoon of assault troops, instead of putting together the expeditionary force out of the most multicultural of his bridge officers.
Janeway was in the Delta Quadrant, there was no backup to call...
True, but she kept going places with the barest of away teams, like every other captain. It was annoying. YOU ARE IN THE DELTA QUADRANT BE CAREFUL
Think logically: You're captain of a ship, alone in another section of the galaxy. Your resources, your crew, are finite. Are you going to risk them all for an away mission? Or are you going to take the bare essentials, knowing that if the crew doesn't make it back, there are still enough people to pilot the ship and get the rest of Voyager back home?
Don't disrespect mah Janeway.
That's tactically unsound. You always have backup for troops in a war. The more filled out a unit is, the better chance there is of all of them making it home. And when you're in an unexplored quadrant of space, you should be on a war footing.
Likewise, in a war, you never risk your whole force for something not worth it. Advance parties, scouts, and small unit teams have been used for ages. Although I do agree to a point about what you're saying.
Janeway had faith in the crew she sent, often risking her own life so the crew doesn't have to. She didn't send down raw recruits, she sent trained officers, and if you read the comics and play the games, Voyager actually had an "Elite Force" for dealing with certain tasks. They were well trained, well equipped and were basically soldiers.
Of course even going by the TV show itself you can see that every member of the Voyager crew was highly trained, inititally picked because they were so good. Yes, you always have backup, a second wave, but oftentimes you can't afford that second wave, or something unexpected happens. You also saw the other ship (I forget its name) who were in a constant war scenario, they suffered heavily because of their attitude towards their situation.
I'll be honest, I've not seen all of Voyager. I got bored about at the end of season 1. I just wasn't a fan of any of the cast, frankly. It's my least favorite Trek. Enterprise>Next Generation>Original>DS9>Voyager.
Fair enough, I find the first season of most "Trek" shwos are shaky. Voyager was my favourite though, there's a few fantastic episodes in there, including the one I mentioned about another ship lost in the Delta Quadrant.
Honestly I agree with Voyager being my favourite Star Trek series but I gotta say its because of how the characters interact with eachother. In most Star Trek series the characters act like a sort of a family they have fun together and they ocasionaly fight but at the end of the day they do care for eachother. And even the most Cold characters sometimes joke around in their own way (For example Tuvok). The first seasons usualy are a bit shaky because it takes about a season to create the bonds that you feel exist between the characters. Other shows that have done this pretty well as well: Firefly, Stargate Atlantis & TerraNova. In more modern shows like Stargate universe all the characters do is hate eachother and try to kill eachother.
