Re: What would have improved Voyager?
I don't think there's any doubt that Star Trek fandom certainly has its 'fringe' element that takes the show far too seriously.
At the end of the day, it's just a show, and anyone who takes it sufficiently serious so as to generate hate mail clearly has a screw loose.
Yes & no.
I think shows like Trek require a certain type of feedback from it's fanbase to see what is working for it & what isn't to some degree. However, it's when that feedback comes in the form of harrassment then we've got a problem.
