When I buy a book with the title of Star Trek Voyager on the cover I expect it to have Janeway in it. She is the "Batman" to Chakotay's "Robin"
But it's not Star Trek: Janeway, it's Star Trek: Voyager. The Star Trek format has proven time and again to be bigger than the characters that inhabit it or else series like The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise would have never been possible.

For this reader, the death of Janeway gave Voyager a sense of growth that it never had before. Beyer had done an incredible job of both looking back and moving ahead all at the same time.
No. It didn't. But watch the show. The credits read "starring" Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway and then goes to also starring Robert Beltran as Chakotay. She was the series lead and to a lot of us that means something.
