Well i dunno if stereotypical is right...but he had decent character development not the most popular character anyway.
He was always gonna be second to Janeway because they needed a strong female capatain he was no gonna be expressive or as dominating as people thought.
but i think the fact that hes culture was ruined,the way they expressed it in the show was limited,but i wouldn't think an Indian episode would have made a difference.
They had an "Indian episode." It was "Tattoo."
It was a disgusting New Age mess.
I never enjoyed that episode...
