Re: Should Neelix/Kes have stayed together?
I didn't get the impression Sam was a negligent mother. I did get the impression the producers didn't want to pay her actress every time they wanted a cute kid in their story.
Actually the actress that played Sam Wildman was branching out her career from TV actress to TV writer during the time. She was writing and developing her own TV show, which paid off. She was the head writer and creator of the series "My Boys" about a woman sports writer who all her friends were men.
