Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

So basically you're saying "If you can do any better, prove it?". Well that's not very constructive and kind of childish.
You're acting like we're being outrageous by daring to even question the story that "Kes was difficult to write for and wasn't working so we ditched her" since we weren't there in the writing room.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with questioning the choices of writers or producers of a TV show, they're not Gods after all and sometimes they do seem to make choices to make lives easier for themselves even if it means sacrificing quality. God knows they did that with Voyager and its magical healing abilities/reset button/unlimited supplies nonsense that causes this show to draw criticism from so many people.
Its not unreasonable for any of us to say that we don't buy the official line that she was such a difficult character. I agree with sfdebris who said that he didn't buy Kes being booted off because the writers didn't know what to do with her, because the writers didn't seem to know what to do with most of the characters, even the fraking captain.
