Re: Why were so many characters on Voyager underdeveloped?

And leave the chief engineer as a guest character? TNG tried that in its first season, and it didn't work. Kim was more or less extraneous, though. I have a hard time thinking of what he did on the bridge that couldn't have been performed by someone else. His most important function was being Tom Paris' best friend, and that didn't require him to be in every episode.
