That said, I would have personally been angry and offended if they killed him off. I liked him as Janeway's friend and first officer. Now take away Janeway, Seven, and the Doctor and he really isn't much just on his own. But dislike? I could never dislike him.
He's kind of like a cog in a machine. He's there, he's probably doing something important, things wouldn't work as great without him, but he's not the guy operating the machine at all.

Re: What's the beef with Chakotay?

I was always under the impression that all the girls loved Chakotay, because he's like this big teddy bear, the kind they love to kiss and hug all hours of the day. He was just a big doofus, as far as I was concerned, personally. But I didn't mind him being there. I just would've preferred Ro Lauren as Janeway's Marquis commander, had Michelle Forbes been interested in committing herself to STAR TREK, at all. Harry Kim should've been a girl, that's for damn sure! I thought there were too many guys on the bridge. Voyager needed more chicks ...

No.

I would have loved this to bits. AND the slash that would have sprung from it, oh my..
at all. Harry Kim should've been a girl, that's for damn sure! I thought there were too many guys on the bridge. Voyager needed more chicks ...
I've long advocated that it should have been a ship of women. Tal Celes could have been Harry.

Oh, yes! I think those adjustments within the cast, alone, would've made VOYAGER's stories less repetetive, in the end. For those all-important ratings, too, having more chicks on the show would've done wonders ...
