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).
But Kes is all fluffy and innocent and kind and wise and empathetic and sympathetic and selfless and full of encouragement and care! She couldn't stab Neelix in the back with an affair, she just couldn't.. which is why she is so boring.
