I'm actually a fan of the Kazons, Viiddians, and Talaxians. Shock, I know. I'm also a fan of Chakotay during the first couple of seasons, you know, when he actually did something other than serve as the ship's counselor. It occurs to me that the Voyager folk managed to set up a somewhat unique setting around the Caretaker's relay and they were developing the cultures there rather interestingly. I, for one, loved Seska's plots and thought they were some of the best plots in the show. Which brings me to another thought, whether it might have been better to have the "Journey Home" prevented and just have the characters hang around as representatives of the Federation in a lawless region. Seeing more plots with the aliens we knew seems like it could have been good.
