Interesting juxtaposition, Xena & Voyager. Both series featuring strong female roles and diminished male personalities. The male roles in Xena were either idiots or evil hunks. Made Voyager's male incompetence look respectable by comparison.

(Seriously, Chakotay can't figure out giving the Captain a physical after being interrogated by aliens until after she acts strangely)? I know, I know, no plot point; but sheesh, how strong can female roles be if they need male roles to first be weakened?
