I loathed that show. Sometimes I wondered if it was deliberately incoherent.
They're got the fastest ship in the quadrant, and they're trying to make their best speed towards home -- and they had recurring antagonists. In the first episode, they pick up Neelix as a guide, and somehow, he has personal experience with the surrounding cultures after they've travelled continuously for several years. Kes has a lifespan of four years, so she decides to head to Earth to get a medical degree -- and after several years of travel, she turns around and goes home, then somehow comes all the way back. They kept having run-ins with aliens that were supposed to have really advanced medical technology, but couldn't seem to cure a viral infection, when the Federation had medicine based on nanotechnology.
I finally stopped watching entirely when the ship encounters a black hole, Janeway says something about the event horizon, and Neelix turns to Kes, and says, in a tone of voice that suggests he's reading an encyclopedia entry to a child, "An EVENT HORIZON is a POWERFUL ENERGY FIELD that surrounds a black hole...."
One thing I've got to say for Voyager, though, was that the holographic doctor was both a genuinely novel point of view, and he was both interesting and amusing.
