Sadly, I don’t really have a favorite Voyager main. I never really gelled with that show, which is probably why I also don’t like playing Voyager as an affiliation.
Same for me.
I feel like Star Trek: Voyager
was a show that told you who to like and how to feel about things instead of just presenting them to you. Star Trek: Deep Space 9
had such a deep bench because they just kind of presented characters to you and the actors, the fans, and the writers themselves got to find the stuff that they loved about them. In the last season, Ezri kind of gets the type of treatment that I saw during all of Voyager
with Janeway, Seven, and The Doctor in that the writers just kept telling us that these characters were interesting and, as a result, they got a lot of episodes. But the characters that just got to be interesting, like Tuvok and B'Elanna, were the episodes I gravitated towards. Neelix is probably next on that list, even though it pains me. He's like Quark in many ways and really should have had more profound changes in his personality over time, so where Quark got to grow, Neelix was just kind of Neelix. I liked the potential, even if it wasn't met for me.
That all being said, I do love Robert Picardo. People are not wrong that he's a great actor. And obviously, Mulgrew and Ryan had some heavy lifting to do as well.
