Re: Why were so many characters on Voyager underdeveloped?
Guy Gardener wrote:
Seska 13 episodes in 7 years
Hogan 7 episodes in 2 years (More like one, but basics crept into season three.)
Jonas 5 episodes in 1 year.
Naomi (scarlet) 17 episodes in 3 years.
Naomi (Brook) 2 episodes in one year.
Icheb 11 episodes in 2 years.
Garak 47 episodes
Nog 37 epiodes
Weyoun 36 episodes
Dukat 32 episodes
It's just a different paradigm.
And from the Original Series at 79 episodes (3 years)
Lt. Kyle 11 episodes
Yeoman Rand - 8 Episodes
So some of the recurring characters in TOS which had hlaf the number of episodes appear almost as often as characters in VOY
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
