Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

I still disagree with the term 'serialized procedural' when applied to Voyager, but even more troubled that it's being compared to programs that didn't appear until 10 or more years after its premiere. Voyager is an episodic show, certainly not to the extent of TOS, but it does have a casual sense of continuity with isolated events. that are occasionally referenced. A plot point in Episode A might be referenced in Episode D, and so forth. The introduction of Seven began a Borg arc within the show, delivered in bits and pieces, until the finale.

I'm mostly familiar with the term serialization as it applies to daytime soap operas, and I don't see Voyager anywhere near that level.
