It's because Kes was a frakking puppy.

Re: Much love to Kes

Exodus waxes laconically...
I doubt very much there'd be a "Poor Garrett Wang got let go and fell into depression" post anywhere here, as if he is any less a person that Jen Lien is.
Read his twitter feed and say that again.

Jennifer was probably lucky in a way. If she'd lasted through the entire run, and the Doctor hadn't found some way to extend the 9-year lifespan, she might have spent the entire 7th season wearing old age make-up.

She already had the early morning chair for her ears, until her allergies got bad.

Re: Much love to Kes

Wang's FB and con talks tell enough of a story

(and it was more about Wang than twitter.. though I'm obviously guilty of the former)

But I still think Harry Kim is cute.

He looked fine when I saw him about a year ago.

He does believe in aliens, Area 51 and government conspiracies though..

Re: Much love to Kes

You still aspire?

Wow.

Oh?

You do understanding that aspiration is different from perspiration, right?

It took about two years after the firing before Jennifer came up with a political correct statement about "contract not being re-newed". Before that, we only had the very vague and changing explanations from those in charge about why it was so necessary and beneficial to dump Kes.

And when did they take the upfront pictures for season 4?

What I've found out from certain reliable sources, it came as a surprise for Jennifer that she had been dumped and she was very depressed over it, something which is visible in the two first episodes of season 4 where her acting is not at the very best.
Who are these "reliable sources" because I know for a fact an actor under contract(unless they're disruptive on the set) can't be let go without going through their agent weeks or even months before. Actors sign contracts which are legal and binding. Actors have agents and don't deal with contract negotiations.
What I've been told from different sources, at least one of them what I consider reliable, it came as a surprise for Jennifer that she would be dumped. Now, I don't have the exact data or details when she was told that she was no longer a member of the cast but it must have been somewhere between the filming of season 3 ended and the filming of season 4 started. What I do know from different sources is that she was very depressed during the filming of "The Gift" and that the other actors weren't happy over the situation either.

I also read somewhere, I think it was mentioned on this forum that Ethan Phillips was so sure about being axed so that they actually planned a goodbye party for him. Obviously the decision about who they were going to axe came at a late point in the preparations for season 4. As for contracts or so, I remember a case when a certain hockey player didn't get his contract re-newed until one or two days before the series started.

TPTB have given reasons for letting Jen go, if the fans can't accept it then how does that make the TPTB the ones creating conspiracy as if it was personal?
The point is that the reasons they gave us were vague and changed all the time. First it was "Jennifer left of her own free will", then it became "oh we do actually axe her because we weren't able to come up with stories for the character", all that spiced with comments about how "Seven saved the show". Not to mention the wonderful word "mutual agreement" which is always used when there is foul play.

When Sasha Alexander left NCIS, there were clear statements from both the producers and the actress herself why she was leaving. (She left because her family lives in Europe and she couldn't stand to be away from them for such long periods). All playing with open cards, no BS about writers not able to write for the character or "mutual agreement". Honestly, I hated and still dislike that they killed off Kate (her character), they could have let her leave on some other mission or so. But they were at least honest.

"Poor Garrett Wang got let go and fell into depression" post anywhere here, as if he is any less a person that Jen Lien is.
If Wang had been axed instead of Lien, they would probably have been some angry Kim fans somewhere ranting about it.
