It's wonderful to see TOS, TNG & VOY still in syndication here.

another thing I enjoy is when the shows refer back to one another.

Me too. I always felt that Star Trek would have benefitted from doing that more often.

Voyager is my favorite of the Star Trek series because of Kate Mulgrew. Her portrayal of Janeway was inspiring and a good role model for girls like me. I loved the humor and banter that was exchanged between the characters, particularly between Janeway and Chakotay. They were meant for each other. I don't understand the end of the last season. Why would Chakotay get involved with Seven? It made no sense.

Janeway was a great captain and a terrific role model.

Voyager did have a good share of humour. To me that was especially evident in Tom & Harry's friendship.

As to Chakotay and Seven ... I prefer to forget that happened.

- I always thought of Voyager as a woman's show that was mostly made my men. I really think that Mulgrew made Janeway but I did wish that Voyager had consistent writing the way DS9 did. As for C/7. They realized after the show was over what a mistake that was and broke them up in the books. I recently read an article in which Ryan expressed disappointment in that relationship in the way the writers/producers handled that.

Casting Janeway as female was probably to help draw in a female audience.

Yeah, they did the same thing with Spider-Man a few years back: killed Peter Parker and replaced him with a black kid named Miles Morales. They're also replacing Thor with a woman. I'm not saying it's good OR bad, obviously changing out bankable characters (or creating one in a bankable franchise) just to have a minority character. In Janeway's case, Mulgrew made the character awesome, and it was well enough written that she stands on her own fictional feet. I tried continuing on with Spider-Man, but the writing was just so weak. I couldn't justify the expenditure of buying the monthly comics. I don't follow Thor anyway, so I'll end up watching that from the sidelines, so to speak. In the end, fads like the minority group du jour will fade and the stuff that can stand on its own will stand, regardless of who or what the characters are or what demographics they belong to.

Totally agree with you there. If a character isn't believable, or well written, the audience won't buy in just because it's supposed to pander to their demographic.

Well, I mean, in the short run sure, some will. But long term? Nope. So thank goodness Captain Kate has staying power

Of course people will have to check it out to determine whether or not it's worth any further investment of their time.

And let's be honest: there will be those for whom the demographic du jour is a personal favorite, so that even if the writing is atrocious they will still hail the thing as ground-breaking and timeless. Either that or they'll be extra-offended at how badly written it is...

I'm sure the writers hope it will be the first option.
