Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season Is that why she changed to such an ugly hairstyle? To cover her no-longer-Ocampan ears? To some extent, wouldn't it have depended on what sort of deal his agent negotiated for him? You'd have kept Chakotay? Well, I guess somebody has to be the Captain. From your location and the above, I'm guessing you might work for one of the east coast-based soaps? This is exactly the kinds of things I've seen mentioned in articles talking about the backstage goings-on. It becomes a balancing act of "if I give it my all, maybe they'll keep me" vs "why should I give it my all if they're probably going to fire me anyway?". Dunno about other countries, but Voyager has been a staple of the Space Channel in Canada for a very long time. Neelix taught Seven how to eat real food. I found Kes to be insufferably annoying, and am glad they got rid of her. What wife? Neelix and Kes were never married.
