Exactly! This is why I don't understand any hate people have for her. I get that she was eye candy. She is gorgeous! But her character was amazing. She was fascinating and she brought a whole new species to the Trek series. A Borg having to become human because they were assimilated pre-puberty? That is such an awesome concept and they really did a great job with it. I was a fan of Kes. I loved her abilities! But I think that once Seven came onto the series it kicked it up past awesome for me. It was great before Seven, but after Seven, it was phenomenal!
