Even so - Voyager couldn't take three hits?! We saw EXACTLY what Voyager could take in 'Year of Hell' - she was barely in one piece (and almost uninhabitable) but she was still firing torpeodes up until the very end, when Janeway rammed her into the Krenim timeship.
You sited one battle with one ship and was pretty much swiss cheeze. Firing while ship is heavily damaged is nothing special. The Enterprise-A in "The Search for Spock," fired photon torpedos out of its one good topedo launcher with the ship just having a crew of five. Hey, I got the Voyager series on DVD, all 7 seasons. Go watch it again, and listen to the battles, noticing Tuvok yelling the shield status after taking hits and the shields droping. The ship was trashed in almost every major battle with the Kazons. Even Freighters and waste dum ships has given Voyager a hard time. The were several times where the crew would have to gather raw materials to rebuild the interior of the ship. The ship is not destroyed because the show must go on. None of the Enterprises were trashed in the shows, TOS or TNG. You can't count the alternate realities or time loops that they had to escape from.
