Re: Why did Chakotay Choose to be with seven instead of janeway?
Well somewhere along the way they changed their minds and it seems less natural because of it. IMHO, I don't find it completely unnatural given that there are plenty of people that can't stand each other at first that become great couples.
I believe at the the time Ryan and Beltran were wondering if anything was going to come from "Natural Law" the plan was that "Human Error" would be the start of a tragic arc for Seven's character that would end with the death in the finale. When they backed off from that plan they needed something for Seven to do an so the "romance".
I'm certainly less inclined to bash Voyager now, it is not nearly as bad a show as many people make it out to be. - TheGodBen
