Well it could have been worse. If Harry had been axed, we might have gotten Bob the Hot Borg Boy.
Why? I mean Janeway-Female, B'Elanna-Female, Kes-Female Vs Chakotay-Male, Tuvok-Male, Paris-Male, Kim-Male, The Doctor-Male, Neelix-Male. 3 Females Vs 6 Males. Seems to me VOY could have used some more ovaries. If Harry goes there is still plenty of sausage to go around.
I thought Janeway/Seven was the most popular couple on the show?
Sure.

Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

Trek casts always leaned testosterone heavy. Replaced cast members were always same gender. The only exception might be Wesley/Ro, but she wasn't regular cast. I don't think Voyager would have changed the balance if Harry had left. They might not have replaced him at all, as they could have slid Neelix into the position.

Yes, this is absolutely true.

I would have loved an all female crew.. but it's easy to just ignore people like Harry and Tom and pretend you have one anyway.

I wish they would do the "Friends" approach with main cast, 3 males - 3 females, everyone is somehow connected, Seven would be Phoebe.

That's giving me a rash just thinking about it.

Janeway as Monica, Seven As Phoebe, Kes as Rachel, Tuvoc as Ross, The Doctor as Chandler and Tom as Joey...forget Harry, Chakotay & Neelix. Maybe Neelix/Gunther in the mix.

Seven would be Ross In many ways the smartest one in the room, but still clueless as to what's going on around her.

Okay, I don't remember that scene. Is it genuine? The copyright on it makes me wonder if it's photoshopped.

It's photoshopped.

I think Seven is from the ep where she was channeling her former selves, (Infinite Regress)

http://images5.fanpop.com/image/phot...07-400-294.gif

and the pose was when she was a little girl playing kotiskot with Naomi.

The Janeway pose is easier to recognize.

http://trekcore.com/gallery/albums/j...rpoint_203.jpg

Its from "Counterpoint", and she's "stretching" in the mess hall as she and Kayshyk "brainstorm".

As they should be

Re: Why was Kes written off the show?

This imaginary love affair you're conjuring? Is it about the characters or the actresses?

Because I heartily await your Warehouse 13 Slashfiction that concludes with Pete walking in on his Mum and his wife doing it.
