So do I. And it was the relatively massive character development of DS9 that I was hoping for with VOY. Good actors, potentially great characters, and many were all-but ignored.
Honestly, I never expected any spin off to be anything like the ones before it. DS9 wasn't anything like TNG, much like TNG is very different from TOS even in character development. Besides Mulgrew, the cast of VOy were different class of actors than those of DS9. Much of DS9's cast were stage actors while many of Voy's were mostly TV actors from my understanding. I didn't expect the same dramatic quality. I also didn't find DS9 to be as "Americana" as Voy. was either.
