    Wasn't species 8472 a greater threat then the Borg were, though?



    Quote:
    As I recall when they first appeared at the start of the episode they blew away 3 borg cubes....

Did that make them a threat to the whole quadrant though? Did they know enough about 8472's motives? Was an invasion from fluidic space imminent? If so then maybe it was necessary. I thought Janeway only did it so she could get a free pass through Borg space. Arming the Borg against their one natural predator seemed like a good way to make the Borg invincible, though.

    Also children on the ships is such a bad idea. ALso when they assembled the fleet for the Battle/Massacre of Wolf 359 they didn't take any time to offload civilians and children to some colony world first.

They probably didn't have time. Wolf 359 was their last chance to stop the Borg from destroying Earth which held a lot more children and civilians.

    Also in Generations did all personnel really get to the saucer section in time before they had to split from the star drive section?

Who knows, but hopefully.

Again, children on local survey vessels don't seem like a problem, but out on the frontier it doesn't make sense. I was just watching TNG's "The Bonding" and Picard even wonders why he has kids on board after the kid's mom is killed on duty and he has to be the one to break the news. Not that having the kid back on Earth would prevent his Mom's death or make it any less tragic for him.
