If Janeway was a man, which means network TV would be able to tell this love story, and "he" wanted to take a run at Kes, leaving Neelix mostly dead would increase "his" chances of having naked sexy sausage time with the little Ocampa. I'm obviously describing Captain Tom Paris, and not Captain Keneth Janeway... But Tom was Voayger's first officer in Resolutions and that episode last several months, a hairs breadth away form the big chair. But in all seriously what Ken Janeway would have said to Kes if confronted with exactly the same midnight plea would have most probably been "Hey sweetheart, why don't you grow a pair." and then he'd kick that pixie out of his quarters as that musky auburn brute tried to make up his mind rationally about who to murder tomorrow.
