Re: I liked the Borg more before the Borg Queen and Q before Voyager.

I dunno. The Borg should have been the primary antagonist. Ideally, the Borg "arc" (term used loosely) would've been VOY's Dominion War. In theory, VOY could have been even better than DS9.

But just a general low quality kept that from ever happening.

In my mind, there's a nebulous concept of a perfect Voyager that plays out a lot like Star Trek: Battlestar Galactica, except the Cylons are the Borg, and Tom Zarek is Chakotay. It's weird to think, given the wholly different atmosphere, themes and competence level, how similar in the basic story both shows were. (Except with one you didn't know it was bad until the last forty-five minutes of the series. So, hey, I guess Voyager wins points for straightforwardness and honesty.)
