Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?
The entire show is fabulous but once 7 of 9 arrived it became a gajillion times better.
Keeping Kes or dumping Kes didn't make much difference IMO. You could stick Kes in the background with the EMH and have her say sweet things to 7 and it would be neither here nor there.
