Re: When did voyager go wrong?

From what I understand, the reason Chakotay is a bunch of stereotypes is because Michael Piller and Jeri Taylor got taken in by a con man who presented himself as a Native American expert, instead of them going out to recruit actual academics.

IIRC, in Fade In, Piller explains the whole Maquis in uniform thing at the end of Caretaker as a result of audience focus testers hating the conflict in DS9.
