I never really liked Guinan, but that could be because I never really liked Whoopi.

Re: What about Guinan?

Upon reflection, it would have been very interesting. Maybe seeing her and Seven interact given her apparent hate of Borg, and with Seven trying to regain her humanity would have lightened that hate much like Hugh did.

Re: What about Guinan?

Sorry, but I see no room for Guinan on Voyager.

They already had Neelix who was cook, morale officer, guide and "listener".

They also had Kes, who also was a good listener and who could have interacted with Seven and helped her to regain her her humanity but was dumped when Seven arrived because those in charge didn't want more than 9 main characters.

So I can't see how Guinan would have fitted in.

Re: What about Guinan?

Who would really leave the luxury of the Enterprise to work on a tug boat like Voyager? Wasn't it bad enough they kept bringing back a nobody character like Boothby in uncreative ways?


Q, Riker, Boothby, Barclay, LaForge & Troi, wasn't there enough TNG cast on Voy. without adding Guinan?

Purhaps a personal quest to find more of her people?
Granted not exspecting to be sucked into the Delta quadrant.

Although you say that she wouldn't expect the Voyager to get pulled into the DQ, Voyagers initial mission was simply to head out to the Badlands and locate the Maquis under Commander Chakotay and bring them, and Tuvok, back to Starfleet. Beyond that would assumedly have been general Starship exploration.

Guinan wouldn't also be needed as initially Voyager didn't have a Bar, only a wall with Replicator units on it.

Voyager never did have a bar, except for those on the Holodeck.

Without Neelix, what would Barclay have named his cat?

Sandrine's wasn't on the ship, except as a Holodeck creation.

There's another good reason for preferring Neelix to Guinan. Leola root stew notwithstanding, we never saw any evidence on TNG that Guinan could cook -- not even so much as putting together a peanut butter sandwich!

Re: What about Guinan?

I would rather have Neelix, he knew the surrounding space, he had ton's of contacts in that sector. He was probably a better cook and last but not least I HATED Guinans huge hat or whatever she wore on her head, it drove me crazy : )
