Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
The fact that they had the same set used in multiple episodes is hardly a mark of continuity, that's like saying it has continuity because the bridge is used in every episode. Sets can be expensive to build so by featuring it in multiple episodes they can spread the cost.
And I don't think many are arguing that VOY didn't have any continuity just that it given it's premise it should have had more.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
