One of the points where Voyager approached distinction, in terms of the drama it brought to the table, was the flirtation that Tom and Kes had. I consider it a missed opportunity that VOY couldn't bring itself to depict Tom and Kes having an affair, at least outside the fig leaf of an alternate future. Flawed characters, thy name is not Star Trek.
Neelix doesn't deserve to get stabbed in the back like that.
Of course he doesn't. That's drama. I'll eat my shorts if there wasn't a person who watched Voyager
who cheated on his or her partner/spouse (with ketchup and mustard to help them go down).
