Anyone miss Janeway-B'Ellana once Seven came along?

I loved loved loved Seven, but did anyone else miss Janeway's relationship with B'Ellana once Seven came along? Actually now that I think about it, I just missed B'Ellana in general.

YES!! I did!

Barge (?spelling) of the Dead was a great re-hashing of their relationship. It made me feel they will always be close.

Re: Anyone miss Janeway-B'Ellana once Seven came along?

I just miss season 1/2 B'Elanna entirely. I know it's an inevitability, but she became boring as she mellowed over the years.

I know this would make her easier to be around for the crew, but as an audience, it's less interesting.

She reminds me of myself really.

Re: Anyone miss Janeway-B'Ellana once Seven came along?

No.
Be"lanna was Janeway's independent "daughter".
She didn't need to be mentored or nurtured like Seven needed.
I liked that J/B weren't gossipy like Troi/Crusher or Kira/Dax.
Plus, we've seen compassion causes Be'Lanna to be uncomfortable.
I think if they kept a tight bond on J/B relationship, the hug in "Barge.." wouldn't have the impact it does. The hug had impact because they weren't openly affectionate toward each other.

BOTD was awesome, but then again, so was "directive 36 a" from Unimatrix Zero part 1.

J/T never died, it just went underground as P/T matured.

Agreed. One of those scenes I wish to have seen more of.

I missed a lot of the other characters after Seven arrived, including the Janeway and B'Elanna confrontations.

Everyone does. Seven stole the show. She's like the Grinch. =) I always felt that Janeway and B'Elanna's relationship was more like sisters. Granted I have no sisters, but watching my mom and my aunts interact with one another it reminds me of that. Much more fun to watch than Janeway trying to mother Seven and make her more human. What I missed most though was Chakotay, he who helped everyone and was always there for Janeway just kind of faded away into his chair on the bridge in season's 5-7. OK, my short rant is over.

If it was a statement, it wouldn't have had a question mark Exodus.

I think I was asking a question. I think. I have the flu so my brain is on the fritz. So let's go with question.
