I guess that why she was thinking about leaving Voyager twice on the journey. That makes no sense. If the Caretaker lives in space and none of them have ever seen him, who built the entire underground society they live in? Do you really think it would take an entire 9 years to build a structure? If they couldn't build anything they who built the societies the Caretaker claimed got destroyed upon his arrival? For the hundredth time, it's called a contract. Something you refuse to acknowledge because it would blow all your theories out of the water. The difference is what you're asking for is irrational. Yeah, lets make the entire cast unemployed just so we can enjoy TV. Of course somebody getting paid to write for the show would fire themselves because hey, the Star Trek fans entertainment is more important than them having food on the table for their wives and children. Seriously, have we grown that selfish?
