Re: Did Voyager get better or worse when Kes was replaced with 7 of 9?

Seven stories about the Borg and regaining her humanity were easier to tell, and easier to find.

Borg stories almost write themselves and in truth don't have to be very good.

They could write worse stories that are better received because Borg is preloved.

This was an opportunity to become very lazy.

It was too hard to write exciting Ocampa stories because no one cared, and the stories actually had to be good on their own merits and not inheriting some magical legacy secret handshake roufie to borggoggle ratbristle into mink pelt.

There was a writer, who claimed that to write a good story, you must always kill off your favourite charcater first.

No idea who the hell that was.
