Re: What would have improved Voyager?

Just to clarify, Berman was just as involved with DS9 as he has been with every other Trek show he's a Producer on. I wish people would stop immediately blaming him for everything when it's so much complex than that.

Don't be silly. It's like telling people that they must stop smoking NOW because it causes cancer. Berman's greatness and failings are self evident, but he is an awesome scapegoat.

Isn't that like Gul Dukat bemoaning what should be done about those pesky Cardassians?

Re: What would have improved Voyager?

A DS9 vs VOY discussion needs to go into General Trek. Start a thread there if you want to continue that tangent of discussion. This thread is about what would have improved Voyager.



One thing would have greatly improved VOY, get it off UPN. Of course without UPN there would not have been a VOY. Without VOY there wouldn't be a forum, and we all would not be here discussing the awesomeness that was VOY.


Since I don't really have a valid argument to present...
VOYAGER RULEZZZZZZ!!!!!!! DS9 SUXXXXX!!!!!!!
but I like DS9 too so...
DS9 RULEZZZZZZ!!! VOYAGER SUXXXXXXX!!!
(MY God, I like both shows. HOW CAN THAT BE?! Something must have fluxed the time space continuum.)

The "my show is better then yours" argument is so very old. I can't be bothered to care about it anymore.



Now to put my mod hat back on:
If you want to continue the DS9 vs VOY argument take it to the appropriate forum. Which would be General Trek. Then post a link back here so people know where to go.

Nah, can't really be bothered with it myself.

As far as the topic at hand goes, I'll stick with my original answer; Jeri Taylor, fired out of the nearest airlock. Works for me!

Re: What would have improved Voyager?

Removing UPN from Voyager would have allowed for better story telling. Consequences for actions, recurring villains, etc. Unfortunately, without that blasted network, there would not have even been a show. Kind of a catch 22.

[/QUOTE]I agree.

People love to complare and contrast Voy. from DS9 to BSG to the latest GEICO commercial. Next thing we'll see is the Geko in a Janeway wig.

Re: What would have improved Voyager?

^^ Well she had the voice for it!

Re UPN, no you're right. There likely would have been another series after DS9, or more likely, just before DS9 ended. Whether that would have ended up being Voyager who knows?! Of course, the other factor for concern there is that the syndicated market started to fall apart in terms of first run syndication shows, hence it may not have come about at all with the climate being what it was when DS9 was finishing.
