What would have improved Voyager?

I enjoyed Voyager as a series, but am aware that it tends to polarize the fan base. For those of you who dislike voyager, what would have improved it for you?

They improved it fine with Farscape and then 10 times better than that with Battlestar Galactica.

Lone ship surrounded by enemies making it's way off to the other side of the galaxy to find a home called earth.

Exactly. Most of VOY's flaws can be traced back to this problem. Even the fact the creative team that just got DS9 up and running was a little tired and reluctant to create yet another new show can be traced back to the fact UPN demanded a Star Trek show as its flagship property.

Shatner's barely not god.

Kiradax it wasn't that there was a reset button more than half the adventures were about different quicksilver alien duplicates.

One or two giant story arches like DS9 had.

No Neelix

Re: What would have improved Voyager?

1) No chakotay- make Tom Paris an older rogueish man and a commander.
2) Crew finds out Seska is cardassian but she stays on anyway...no stupid pregnancy. I always liked Seskas acidic wit...instead of a cardboard cutout villain she would have worked better as a foil
3) B'lanna looks and acts more klingon
4) No neelix
5) No holodecks
6) Scarcity...if you everything you need where are the plot twists?

7) The maqui and the federation do not have to be enemies but they do have to do things differently.

Stupid UPN executives interfering with the creative process too much.
