First and foremost, this is NOT a bash thread, so please be kind. I was reading into why Kes was written out of Voyager, and I read some nasty rumours regarding drugs etc. I looked up some recent photos, and the difference is unbelievable, she looks like a completely different person now. It's odd because she is only 38 years old, so I couldn't understand the change. Just wondering, is there any substance to those rumours, and if anyone knows why she left Voyager?
