I am really going to miss you folks when I finish this show and this thread disappears.
Glad you ended up liking the show, even though it took five years to get to your favorite seasons, 6 and 7.
I still think VOY seasons 4-7 was pretty much the same thing. The show found its identity when Seven arrived and it stopped changing.
TNG was the same way. Every season after season 3 feels like a sequel to that year. Season 4 was S3 part 2, Season 5 was S3 part 3, etc...
