Just wanted to know if the addition of the Jeri Ryan character Seven of Nine made any difference in the ratings of Voyager or was that just a myth? The idea that she was added to bring more male viewers can't be denied or at least I don't think it can. Speaking as a guy, I thought she look fabulous but I also know that her character wasn't needed or at least not in the way they had her portrayed by Ryan. If they just wanted another character to add to the show they could have put her in a costume that was less sexy or at least something that didn't look like it was painted on her. But regardless did Voyager see a huge leap in viewership after Ryan or did it end up having the opposite affect of turning away loyal fans? Just wondering. I liked Seven of Nine myself but like I said, she really wasn't needed to add to the story line.
