Ah, Season Six.
The JetC contingent took Braga off their Prixin list when he gave Janeway a digital boy toy. There's plenty of high concept, as well as some lowest common denominator -- If ya smeeeeelllllalalalalaow! What The Rock! Is! Cookin... Extreme Action, Extreme Passion, Extreme objectification and adjectivication....
We even picked up a litter of new recurring characters, giving Seven of Nine a chance to learn how to play momma.
I enjoyed it, but in the third season of Exhaustively Comprehensive reviews, I was showing the strain. Reviews began coming in late. The selfish part of me hoped the rumors for an abbreviated series run were true, just so I could rest. I still liked watching the show - very much - but was losing a taste for the writing. It may have shown from time to time.
