Re: Writing Janeway out of the series -- what are your thoughts?
It's just my personal theory, I've not seen it stated anywhere. We know Beltran was unhappy in the later years because he wanted a more prominent role in the series. I've always thought they gave him the romance to appease him. A larger role, as Captain, might have satisfied him greatly.
