Re: What would have improved Voyager?

Voyager was quality story telling, but there is a difference between a quality story and you just not liking the story they are telling.
There's also a difference between high and low quality. We can all agree that Voyager told 'quality' stories. The conjecture is more around whether they were of a high calibre nature or not. Voyager produced plenty of 'average' episodes, but also more stinkers and fewer outright classics than either TOS, TNG or DS9. IMO.
No way bro.

Rewatch TNG. It's equal to Voyager on how many bad or forgettable episodes it had.

What Voyager was is every Trek film made condensed into an hour episode. Voyager is the type of show you pop on if you don't want the heavy intellectual drama of TNG or the dark moody feel of DS9. It was made for a sci-fi crowd that liked Xena, which was all the rage at the time. Voyager was designed to capture a crowd that normally found Trek boring & humorless.

Is it so wrong to try and make Trek cool?
