Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

Now that 4 of the 5 Star Trek programs are on Netflix, I started watching a little of each again. I'm starting to think Voyager might have been the best of the lot.
Anyway, I'm old enough to have seen reruns of TOS in the 70s and 80s and first run episodes of the later shows, some of which I watched more than others. But I also like the Abrams reboot. I think it turned out much better than a lot of people expected.
It's interesting, but Voyager plays really well in the wake of the Abrams film. In the first episodes, the marquis and starfleet crew members butt heads and argue. The no-infighting rules that TNG had to follow seemed to have been jettisoned by Voyager and obviously by Abrams in his version as well. Plus, Voyager is a nice contrast since it has more female cast members.
