Re: Why was Kes written off the show?
I'm kind of surprised they didn't consider dumping Neelix
He was the only truly "alien" looking cast member and besides Kes and until Icheb, the only DQ native. Neelix was also a flawed hero which added more depth to his character. It was this lack of dramatic depth IMO that made Kes hard to write for.
