    Let me amend my original post.

    I love Captain Kathryn Janeway ... :bolian:

    AND

    ...all the Voy fan boys/fangirls I have met and never met especially Teacake...

    ...EXCEPT when she DENIES :eek: the rightness that IS Janeway/Chakotay. :drool:

    I'm not even a huge Janeway fan but I'd have liked to see her and Chakotay together. ;)

    If Captain Janeway wants to frakk Chakotay I have absolutely no problem with that. Everyone needs a little side hobby.

    Yes, this. ^

    The opening is simply epic, and the theme is my favorite of all the Trek shows.

    Also, I always liked the distinctive ship design of Voyager. It looked like a sleek cobra's head. It seemed to suggest that the ship may be small, but it had a nasty bite.

    I'm also a fan of Kes, Seven Of Nine, and the good Doctor.

    I admit that I didn't like Janeway at first, but she grew on me. I enjoy the fact that she's a coffee addict, as well as her mother lion attitude towards protecting and fighting for her crew.

    That's not love, it's hotness.

    I do think he's a very sweet boy.

    I guess I misunderstood. I must be one of those guys who confuses sex and love.

    I do not love Harry, he is interchangable with all sorts of other characters from all sorts of other shows. It's just he's on my show, my special precious show that I do love. Unlike most other shows. So sometimes I pay him special attention, though most of the time its just the usual mockery Harry inspires.

    I think he is sweet, a little gumpy, very good looking, kind, and idealistic in a way which is nice on tv but probably wouldn't work over a cup of coffee if I met him IRL. VOY is totally deficient in the men camp, unlike ENT, which also elevates Harry's hotness.

    Now Janeway.. I love her and I sex her and I let her touch my shoulder FOREVER AND EVER AMEN.

    1. The characters. More interesting than any characters in any series.

    2. The premise for the show. The whole idea with a lost ship in the Delta Quadrant with a mixed Starfleet-maquis crew was great.

    3. The actors. They really gave life to the characters.

    In terms of acting, Voyager had Picardo and Mulgrew going for it, and Ryan when she was given something interesting to do. And for all Voyager's faults in not having story arcs or great continuity, it did have some excellent high-concept episodes, like "Blink of an Eye", "Living Witness", "Year of Hell", "The Omega Directive" to name just some.

    I thought Harry was a good character at the beginning when he was established as this sort of Starfleet nerd with somebody to impress. They started to use him as their 'suffer' character the way DS9 used O'Brien, and I liked him in Emanations and Non Sequitur.

    Unfortunately the Voyager writers had no idea how to make a character interesting without a gimmick to exploit so he either kept getting 'sidekicked' or he got terrible episodes like Favorite Son that had nothing to do with his character.

    I loved The Doctor. IMO he had the best character development in all of Trek.

    I like the addition of Seven of Nine.

    I like that at last TPTB saw fit to cast a female captain.

    Wow, there are so many things about Voyager I liked. It's late so i'll be (kinda) brief. Voyager got me into Star Trek, I remember watching episodes like Future's End, Year of Hell, Message in a Bottle, Relativity, Shattered and End Game to name but a few. Really well written episodes IMO. I really liked characters such as Tuvok, Tom Paris, Seven and The Doctor, I felt they were reason the series was what it was. There are obvious faults with continuity (Ex drones from Wolf 359???? :borg:) as there are in many episodes of the other series but overall I loved Voyager and can't wait for it to be Remastered (If).

    Well hell, I might as well say it since I'm old enough that I don't have to worry about being politically correct all the time: I liked Seven because she had an ample bosom.

    The fine line between continuity and fanwank.
    What a great thread. My items would include:

    1. Strength of the premise; I believe Mr. Braga would refer to this as "high concept" creating
    2. Casting and performances; I'd say I'm about 90% on the cast and the performances they gave; certain actors give amazing performances that perhaps bring it up to 100% if we allow them to be "weighted" :rommie:
    3. Production design/quality; including the Voyager herself, the entire series was beautiful to look at yet visually clean
    4. Sense of adventure; as others have said, the show had a strong adventurous "heart" at its center, and stands up as thoroughly enjoyable
