In "Year of Hell" did VOY get any help, find any repair stations, or were they just getting blasted by the Krenim the whole time until they fought the Timeship at the end?
Gary however, mentions them finding repair stations and making deals for ore/resources.
These two cannot co-exist if the entire series was just 7 Years of Hell.
And you're the one who keeps dodging the "spoonfeed" thing. DO you think the audience needs to be spoonfed everything, or not?
