Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?
She seemed to have an understanding but I wouldn't trust her to advise someone out of a box.
Which is more than Troi had going for her. Without her empathy she had nothing. Witness every time she tried counseling Data, it pretty much backfired. Not to mention Kes could read an encyclopedia in a day and retain that information since she became a medical expert in the space of a year easy enough.
