I won't argue who the better author is. My point is killing Janeway was not wise. That act didn't help the franchise and only pleased the more fanatical Janeway haters. There was more gain in not killing Janeway than killing Janeway. Same was true for Kirk, Data, and Tripp. THAT is my point.
Hell, I'd say DS9 would have been better if they didn't "kill" Sisko.
