As I discuss at length in my book "Gender and Sexuality in Star Trek," VOY is full of rich, and resonantly explored, queer subtext. I also do not see it in any way, except perhaps for some of the earlier plots, as "a formulaic 'TNG-lite' show," as Christopher does. I thought VOY daringly explored dynamics of gender and queer desire.
"Daringly?" When it didn't even have the courage to go through with a lesbian kiss as DS9 had already done a year or so before?
And your last two sentences are a complete non sequitur. I wasn't talking about whether or not there was GLBT subtext, I was talking about whether UPN wanted to allow serialization, deal with the practical consequences of the ship's stranding, etc.
