Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
You're equating Voyager not re-encountering certain alien species more than once with the ship having left said aliens' territory behind, which I don't think holds much weight.
BTW, I consider Seasons 1 and 2 to be comprised of 20 and 22 episodes respectively, which equals 44 eps, plus Basics P2, which equals 45.
