After watching a few seasons of Star Trek Voyager, it seems like crashing shuttle crafts becomes somewhat of a theme. You quickly get to the point where you start to wonder how many shuttles can fit in the shuttle bay of such a "small" starship", especially with Neelix's large shuttle sharing the space.
The accepted answer to this question: How many shuttles does Voyager have, not including The Delta Flyer determines that Voyager had to have had,
[...] up to 8 shuttles at any given time, with up to 17 built during the show's run.
So if crashing shuttle crafts was a regular occurrence, and the crew of voyager had to construct at least 17 new shuttle crafts to replace all the one's they had destroyed. How come you never here the captain or the crew talking about constructing new crafts? Or finding components and materials to build crafts? Or even salvaging what's left of a crashed shuttle so they can use it as spare parts to build the next one?
