Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
VOY had an actual goal to obtain(getting home) and obstacles to over come(two different crews alone and cutoff from starfleet) so an amount of continuity and serialization was to be expected.
An expectation that they did in fact deliver on, albeit in a different fashion than they had originally intended.
