For me Seven really ruined the series.



As a gay man, Seven as sex appeal was never going to work for me, but I can appreciate an attractive woman. Jeri Ryan is good-looking, with a very curvy figure, but when you have someone like that parade around in catsuits it kinda cheapens the character and continues stereotypes of "sexy sci-fi chick".
I think MANY women are very sexy and I enjoy watching varying women characters for just that reason. 7 is my favorite Trek character but you know I never found her sexy at all. Beautiful, yes. Jeri Ryan is a rather unusual looking woman, not at all generic despite the Barbie elements some decry. Unusual in a way that works very well with science fiction.
