I like lots of things about Voyager, mostly the same things I like about TNG. It's a vehicle to tell interesting science fiction stories and morality plays with a mostly likeable cast of characters. Janeway is also a refreshing character when contrasted with Picard and Sisko - more idealistic and optimistic than Sisko, but more action oriented and prone to Kirk-style moments of almost logic-defying badassery than Picard was. Voyager also did meta episodes really well and was often given to taking itself a lot less seriously than TNG and DS9. It opens the opportunity for episodes that are just there explicitly for fun and nothing else, and most of them work, except for the Captain Proton ones, which are shit. But even then, Kate Mulgrew's spider queen outfit gets a laugh every time. Agreed, I like how everyone's almost ridiculously chilled out about their situation and how they continuously decide to take opportunities to explore and find cool things on the journey home. A lot of people seemed to hate that aspect introduced by TNG, that Federation humans in the 24th century completely under-react to basically everything and are prepared to risk their lives daily just for the sake of exploration, but I liked it a lot.
