One of the things I liked about Voyager, was the way the seasons changed. The first year it was a journey of 70,000 light years which began with the first order,"Engage." Then slowly, over the first 2 years, reality starts to settle in... running out of supplies, running into enemies, discovering enemies within their own midst.
By season 3, shortages and futility are just another factor in normal living, and they all start to have fun with their predicament. By season 5, however, everyone is just TIRED and they discover the truth in the old saying, "We have met the enemy, and the enemy is us!"
Season 6 & 7 heals old wounds and we see our crew become the professional wayfarers that they are. Seeking out new worlds, and new civilizations, as they try to boldy go where they haven't been for many years. Back home.
Enjoy the ride, I certainly did.
