... Harry had been killed in the end of season three? How would have Kes' character developed during the later seasons? Her being nurse in the sickbay did not gave a lot of juicy Kes-centered storylines to be told. If Kes had stayed, would it been her instead of the Doctor to give Seven social lessons? Would she have given them to both Seven and The Doctor? Would there had been other things for her to do onboard Voyager instead of being nurse? Would there have been good stories to be told about her and Tuvok, for instance? So how would you have developed Kes if she had stayed? How would you have made her more interesting? And who would have become the operations officer on bridge? Ayala? And thanks to Lynx for inspiring me to make this thread!
