Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?

Those bad boy examples (with certain exceptions in Starbuck's case) are all personal flaws or character traits.

Would they have released Tom if he'd screwed his way across half a quadrant like Curzon? Sure.

Would they have released Tom if he'd been an alcoholic but was now sober? Sure.

Would they have released Tom if he was an erratic nutjob like Starbuck? Possibly, if he'd kept that to his personal life and showed a lot of line toeing when it came to authority.

Any of those would have made the Bad Boy label believable.
