Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?
Kes seemed to have a general understanding how people ticked even if she didn't have much life experience. I'm not saying she'd be a good counselor, but she'd be better than Troi who didn't have anything to go with beyond her empathic abilities.
