Re: What would have improved Voyager?
This boils down to the talent behind the shows less than the shows themselves. They were quite content to let the people behind Farscape and Battlestar Galactica do their own variety of space opera; I wouldn't be surprised if they had the same leinency if they had Star Trek: Voyager - and the Voyager staff weren't half bad, especially compared to some of their other programming.
Well, just like the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootie Pop, the world may never know.
