Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
You really can't compare TNG, DS9, and Voyager to one another because they're entirely different. TNG is almost wholly episodic, DS9 is heavily serialized, and Voyager is a hybrid of those two formats that, as I have noted, is analogous to a 'serialized procedural drama' such as Bones.
