This has really been ticking me off for quite a while now, but why do some people hate ST Voyager? Sure ST DS9 was badass, but why does ST Voyager get all the crap? I mean it was a great show. Responses and comments are welcome. I'm just curious:lol:

Enterprise gets most of the hate, i haven't perceived much hate directed at Voyager...

In any case, you shouldn't pay too much attention to what people have to say about shows you enjoy, especially if you'll avoid getting upset and whatnot. Some people like this, some people like that... As with everything, the problem is when people make a point out of assuming to know what the show "should have been like". :lol:

I enjoyed voyager, it was not without flaws, but i liked nevertheless, because there was a series-encompassing story arc (voyager being lost) which in turn fueled many interesting stories of itself. It wasn't a random jumble of missions, and they did some true exploration while "lost".

why some people hate (or just love to hate) Voyager, AFAIK:

1 - "Captain, the Treknobabble Modulator is malfunctioning!" "Calm down Mr Kim. B'Elanna, report." "It's the Isodecraphrium disisnttech calibration matrixium. It's gone... fuzzy." *chuckles insanely at the people cringing*

2 - "Good Morning Mr Vulcan." (the person saying, not the person spoken to)

3 - Seven., Can you say, Sex Appeal?

4 - [i]"Tuvok, calibrate the deflector array to fire a thiswillkillborgium pulse."

heh. i thing i got it all pretty well covered there. hehe.

I like Voyager, and I didn't think that there was any collective hate for Voyager. They may have dummied down the Borg, but the show is still good.

Enterprise does get the shaft more than Voyager but he's right there is some residual Voyager animosity haning around fans.

The Janeway Haters:

Charges: Introducing Slipstream technology to the Borg Saving the Borg from Speicies 8472 Violation of the Prime Directive Violation of the Temporal Prime Directive. Introducing future technology to the Borg.

Intrepid Haters

Charges: Not as strong as the Galaxy Surviving numerous Borg Encounters Surviving impossible odds Instantly repairable.

Seven of Nine Haters

Charges: Too much screen time Too many tight cloths Too Barbie like Too Sexy for Trek

But Voyager has had some ...floppy episodes in regards to plot. Yet it got away with them because we liked the characters so much.

I never hated Voyager... although in my opinion DS9 is the best of all the series.

I like Voyager. IMHO it said some really bad episodes and some really good episodes.

I think TNG and DS9 both had their share of growing pains til they found their stride.
