Rewatching TNG on blu ray is really eye opening. I can see exactly where Voyager went wrong. There's a natural sense of development in TNG. It's subtle and very gradual, but it's there. By the end of the second season the cast has developed more than the cast of voyager developed over the course of the entire show. There are wonderful character moments in almost every episode. The characters learn things and then grow.
Granted I've only watched 5.5 seasons of Voyager, but I can surmise that very little changed in the last 1.5 seasons. What a disappointment this show was!!! I don't think I will ever return to it, sorry to say.
