As I recall from reading it on this forum which means nothing as to its truth Year of Hell was originally conceived to be an entire season.
That would have been so so excellent.
It would indeed. I'm a little unsure of the idea mooted that Tuvok would become an amputee as well as blind, though.
Spock had his brain removed and put back in his skull with no side-effects. I'm sure they'd find some alien doctor who could easily fix Tuvok's sight as soon as they could.
Of course, even if they waited a long time and had the explanation make total sense, the audience would still say it was a reset button.
