Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?
Also if their goal was to increase ratings and make more money, they didn't do such a great job with that. Adding Seven was clearly a good business decision, as it briefly increased their ratings. But Voyager's constant focus on short term ratings grabbing over quality writing and long term fan loyalty was clearly a poor business decision.
I do believe that I'm not alone on this board in thinking that the stories improved when Seven came on board or that Jeri was a fine addition to the cast.
