Cullah recurring never made sense to me. Here goes Voyager, headed home at maximum warp, and then, here's Cullah again in his much... slower... ship?

The only way Voyager should have a recurring guest character was if they could actually move faster than Voyager somehow.

Agreed-also, the implication is that Culluh is spending significant amount of time doing nothing but chasing after Voyager, like he's Dr. Claw trying to get Inspector Gadget or something.

YES. I mean, Cullah is the leader of his people, and in a resource-scarce area of space, and given that they live on ships without (especially ships without replicators), wouldn't that mean that he would have relationships with their regular resource providers to maintain that they couldn't have afforded to risk for chasing Voyager?

Those ships are large enough to have several farms. And I mean meat farms, not just vegetable farms. Does any one believe that the Kazon eat vegetables?

I have it on good authority that they eat dirt clods.

Neelix was the only latex alien, how could they get rid of him? And besides, like Spock was in TOS, Nexlix is the outsider, commenting on whatever the story's about, from an outsider's point of view. But yes, he was an annoying, directionless, jealous boyfriend, always trying to find some busy work to do, to keep himself out from underfoot. So while he didn't have the right personality, he had the right look. And in Hollywood, that's all it takes to keep on the Gravey Train for a long ... long time.

This is not quite correct since the role of exploring humanity was actually given to the Docbor (and later 7). Neelix was more kind of a comic relief and only a secondary Spock-a-like.
Being the outside man looking in doesn't mean Neelix was exploring humanity. He was a Alien, that alone makes one an outsider looking in on a culture foreign too you.

Voyager kept being held up, though ... what with this race not liking it when other species violate their territory ... or nebula with Made-for-TV properties that they have to drive around. These little detours can really add up ...
And Cullah would have had most of the same obstacles, and after a certain point his less advanced sensors would have lost Voyager, I would think.
Voyager would be the only ship in that part of space with a completely unique warp signature. They'd be like a big beacon of light to any DQ ships sensors. Even less advance sensors would still find it.

Only if they're stupid enough not to mask their trail or periodically change their signature.

(The Voth used a sample of Voyagers warp plasma to track the ship, despite Kathy having a two year head start.)

Even Janeway must have noticed that everyone that they had met or will ever meet in that toilet end of the galaxy wanted to kill crew after sometime after the first month.

Unfortunately Janeway has been programmed by Starfleet to believe that humans are in this galaxy to spread the wonders of humanity which will be eagerly received by those that are worthy.

Of course. We will be greeted as liberators.

Hey, don't knock the food, Christians really know how to put on a spread when they're proselytizing.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

I find the jandal wearing, scrunchy sporting, ignorant & naive walk in shadows of the righteous beliefs of 1950s purity segments of that cult to be a little alluring.

It's like time-fucking.

Using a time machine to sex up historical figures.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Yes well the unbuttoning and mussing of the brightly composed is a classic fantasy. Where I live most of the time travel involves the glorious newage 70's and if I wanted to sex these people up I would have to rid them of the stench of patchouli first.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Remember when Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory dressed up as Spock and went to a renaissance fair pretending that it was a distant uncharted M Class Planet that supported a humanoid civilization that was very similar to a primitive earth culture.

I had to Laugh when Martha Jones quipped with almost no coaxing that she once snogged Shakespeare.

Which is nothing compared to her boss...
