Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
^ Thanks. I looked at the synopsis for that episode and came away with a very different interpretation than you apparently did. All that episode tells us is that, despite everything he's experienced, Harry isn't ready for the 'responsibilities of command'; that doesn't automatically equate to his character not having grown.
Have you watched it? Kim is shown to be just as green as he was in "Caretaker". There was literally zero growth over 7 years,
