When the Jem'Hadar first came in to it, remember what happened to the Odyssey? And Captain Keog? Picards methods wouldn't have worked. This is the idiot who, after all, got shot with an arrow to prove a point. The sad thing is I didn't even google any of that, sigh. There is no sci fi around these days, true, but I still haven't seen a lot of Stargate so i'm ok. Dr Who is now awful though, beyond a joke.
Urgh, I hated her. Just tits and plastic (probably with a cross over). I wish Kes had stayed and the events of "Before and After" had really occurred. The Borg didn't kill even one main character, in fact i'm not even sure they killed a red shirt.
She wasn't even pretty. They chose to get a few more viewers at the cost of the final shred of the shows longevity. Troi, Jadzia and T'Pol had so much class and were much more attractive. Even B'Elanna was 10 times better than Seven.
I watched it all and didn't realise at the time that it was so poor. When no one died, so soon after the massacre on DS9, then I knew it was just dog shit. I've always thought Janeway at least should have gone, even though she was great, because then it would be almost poetic. She promised to get them all home and if she came back in time and got herself killed to do it, then it would have probably the most beautiful ending of them all.
I'm a Star Trek sponge, sadly. I enjoy Torchwood but that's only barely sci fi. Buy Farscape, Babylon 5, Galactica and/or Sliders on dvd, all are good (well, Sliders gets awful but what happenes to the characters...dear god...truly horrific)
