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....
Like every other Trek show there were some well-written stories along with some not so well-written ones. You're also forgetting Voyager was followed by Enterprise.
Reboots are a fashion in Hollywood now thanks in part to the success of nuBSG. The idea that Voyager contributed one way or another to a Trek reboot just doesn't hold water, imo.
I'm certainly less inclined to bash Voyager now, it is not nearly as bad a show as many people make it out to be. - TheGodBen
