Re: What would have improved Voyager?

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?
Star Trek that appeals to the Xena crowd, wasn't that Andromeda?

I take the original point though. TNG's first two seasons really do it no favours. Whilst there are some episodes of Voyager that I like though, there's nothing approaching the likes of The Offspring, Measure of a Man, The Inner Light etc. Voyager, to me, mostly seemed to be quite bland, occasionally raising itself above it's average, and occasionally dipping to trawl the depths.
I am a Ranger. We walk in the dark places no others will enter. We stand on the bridge and no one may pass. We live for the One, we die for the One.
