Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

Kes was boring after a while. They did everything they could with her. Apart from actually aging her out and making *that* a story, there wasn't much left that warranted keeping her on another season.
Also that's just your opinion. Clearly Biller, an actual writer on the show, disagreed. And I'm pretty sure I read somewhere Menosky felt there was a lot more juice left in the Kes character too.[/QUOTE]

I guess you went back and added this last bit because it wasn't there when I replied earlier...

Again, I'm not disputing that some of the writers still thought there were stories to be told. I'm saying that as the showrunners, Berman, Piller and Taylor were well within their rights to writer her out. Myself, personally, I understand that.
