Re: VOY Greatest Contributions

In my opinion, Voyager's greatest (?!) contribution was in poorly written stories that took Star Trek far enough off the rails that no more really good Trek could be made without a semi-reboot of the franchise. Which resulted in the excellent movie earlier this year.

So, um, right on, Voyager! Yeah....
Ha! Not sure I would say greatest, but I can't in good conscience completely disagree.

As for what I do think VOY's greatest contributions are:

-the doctor. Picardo was a god among men in that cast.

Species 8472 (before the writers immediately turned around and neutered them)
-Uh...I'm sure there are others. I WOULD say a female captain TV show lead, but she was kind of a pretty bad character ultimately. She could be a delusional loony, an idiot, a brilliant leader, a badass, etc....depending what writer was onboard and what the script required. Every episode was a damned roulette. Will Janeway be crazy? Stupid? Cool? Place your bets!
