I agree and she only needed Kim's help if the job required an extra set of hands, she did not require his brain (or lack therof it). Seven's input mainly was only needed in regards to Borg tech and even then B'Elanna figured most of it out herself.

That is true.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

Yes, she is. She was basically self-thought which must be the result of a great talent.


Who'd let that cat in here?

Absolutely, B'Elanna was the best engineer.  When the rest of them had major problems they had the rest of Starfleet to rely on.  B'Elanna was on her own and managed to do amazing things.

excuse me?Fine you like her best...........but dont go making things up to make her look good.


 


9 times out of 10, for the rest of them, everytime there was a major problem they had no one to rely on.They were almost aslwasys the only sdhip or crew in what ever given sector they were in.


Scotty,LaForge and OBrien more often then any other, needed to work alone, with only their onw crews to help.....................if even that.

Stovokor yeah they did only have themselves to rely on but All three of those had a bunch more people on hand.... Voyager only had 140 and not all of them could possibly be enginners

assumptions not based on any solid facts.


The Defiant had a far smaller crew complement..........around 50 at best..........."and not all of them could possibly be enginners"

Stovokor O'Brien wasn't stuck on the defiant all the time Most of the Show was on the Station or on Bajor...... And I gurrentee that the Station DS9 had a whole lot of engineers... that and the Defiant was rarely far from DS9... so So Defiant had Station Support..... Voyager Had Absoulutly nothing other than it's 140 Crew members.......

Did you even watch DS9, the Defient was very often, very far away from DS9.And the station had a very small number of crew asigned to it before the war.


Station personal before the war numbered at 300.Starfleet personel only accounted for just less then 1/2 the stations crew those first 3 to 4 years, which means the starfleet crew on the station was only numbered at about 150 tops.


And OBrien complained about being very understaffed for at least the first  years, so he must have had under 15 guys in his department.And just about no one with his level of skill to help out.No one able to blend the Cardy tech with federation tech.


Torres on the other hand had Lt.Carry as her right hand man,who was almost as good as she was, and even 7 and Harry to help out when things got tough.

Right but Defiant wasn't there in The Beggining and the War took up the later seasons so I'll concede that they may be gone long sometimes...... And O'Brien Took his posting it wasn't foisted upon him.... He wanted a challenge....... B'Lanna had it foisted upon her... But She rose up To The Challenge...... And B'Lanna rarely needed help from the others.... I've watched Voyager and I know for a fact she dosn't need help every episode

The Defiant was NOT there in The Beggining of the series, it didnt arrive at the station till season 3.


and I'm not sure that your useing the word "foisted" the way its intended.


Bottomline, she was up for the job, pretty much in competion with Carry, she got the job because she proved to be better at it then he was.But regardless, she had far more , ablebodied help avalible to her in the forms of carry,Harry and 7.


OBrien on the other hand almost always did it alone.Sometimes with only 1 other guy,Torres almost always worked with a grew that numberd over 5
