I would like to see - after regaining more of her humanity - Seven teaching Kathryn how to be a better captain based on those experiences.

I'd like to see an episode where Janeway's shame about her coffee addiction sees her charging Seven with the secret task of finding a way to use Borg nanoprobes to create a substitute for her morning coffee fix, perhaps as a means of weaning herself off the noxious liquid refreshment. Naturally, this leads Seven into an inquisitive voyage of discovery, resulting in her reaching the conclusion that caffine creates an effect not dissimilar to being assimilated, and that Starbucks is clearly analogous to the Borg Collective. Hilarity ensues, of course.

Early in S1, one of the little people onboard can't handle what's happened to them and the fact that they may never see their family again and attempts suicide. They are saved and in sickbay recovering from the effort, where Janeway tries to counsel the crewman to help them come to terms with what has happened.

Meanwhile, the rest of the main characters discuss the idea of giving up, reassessing their own thoughts on their situation, etc.

It looks like Janeway is getting through to them, but its a ruse, the the character is ultimately successful, leaving their mark on the rest of the crew, and reinforcing Janeway's committment to the emotional needs of her people.

It would be a bit of a downer, but hey life can really suck sometimes.
Before that idea can work, we (and the characters for that matter) need to really believe that Voyager will be genuinely travelling home for the next 70 years and won't fluke a wormhole or have the future captain conveniently come back in time to help em out...and as we know, that sense of being there for a very long time (the rest of their lives even) was never really that tangible in the show.....other than that, yeah i like the darker tone of the idea
