It would've been a lot easier to take her seriously if they didn't have her parading around in a outfit that set women's rights back 200 years.
Seven was an example to not judge a book by it's cover.
Seven was intimidating to men. Seven showed a beautiful woman with great self esteem, successful in her career and didn't need a man to protect her or define her. She showed that you can be a head strong woman without being labeled a Lesbian, as many did when it came to Kira or flaky like Dax. Seven showed us, regardless of how you look it's what inside that counts. If anything, Seven is pro-women's rights.
But, in season 3 the show had gotten terribly stale and they were reaching for story. They had dinosaurs evolve into a super-race, for chrissake.
That was one of Voyager's best eps. IMO.
It's paying homage to "Planet of the Apes" and the debate within it of Evolution vs. Creation. The concept of Dino's evolving into humanoid like species is no more reacting than believing Apes can evolve into a humanoid like species and be a more advanced and dominating species on Earth. The Voth Queen = Dr. Zaius, in the fact that she's covering up the truth of evoution in what she believes is protecting Voth society. Gagan = Zera, the scientist that has discovered scientific truth with Chakotay = Charlton Heston's Astronaut George Taylor.
