I think Mulgrew was wrong too, but if you look at very early interviews, she wasn't so against a romance with Chakotay. So you say what happened? And nobody knows for sure, personally I think once Jeri Taylor was gone and the Three Bs had their way with Voyager and any question of romance was out, she changed her tune, or she was more open to J/C when Jeri Taylor was in charge.
I even understand why she thought it could be wrong, but bottom line. On a starship that was looking at a 70 year journey (yes I know they had got it down to around 35 at the end), you cannot make me believe that only one couple got married, had an affair, or a relationship; and that there was only one baby born.
A lot of guys are always harping about how Voyager was always clean and neat. You know that doesn't bother me at all. But there should have been children, and that's the one that bothers me.
