Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Do you watch Homeland?

You're like Homeland.

Season 3 had 14 writers, or teams of writers, before the producers rewrote everything.

André Bormanis
Andrew Shepard Price, Mark Gaberman
Brannon Braga (by himself) x3
Brannon Braga, Joe Menosky (together) x6
Clayvon C. Harris
Geo Cameron
George Brozak
Harry 'Doc' Kloor
Jeri Taylor x2
Jimmy Diggs
Joe Menosky (by himself) X 3
Kenneth Biller x5
Lisa Klink x6
Michael Piller
Michael Sussman
Ronald Wilkerson, Jean Louise Matthias
Shawn Piller

Any continuity was accidental.

Episodes are farmed out to strangers under oaths of silence, written out of order and produced out of order and filmed out of order and then aired almost randomly.

Brannon and Joe each wrote nine episodes, and not completely the same nine episodes... Considering their power, the only thing stopping them from writing a linear progressive story throughout the course of many stories was the network yelling at them not to.
