[I think that the relationship between Garak and Kira is fascinating. They’re not friends, not really, but they have a great understanding of each other, and I think a big part of it it’s because Garak really respects Kira for all she is and all the things she did for her people. They’re such complex characters, both of them, and I love to watch how it changes and grows along the seven years of the show.]

[I definitely think VOY improved upon how Star Trek dealt with mental illness. Even though Lt. Barclay received help for his addiction and social anxiety, in many ways he remained the butt of the joke on TNG - even Wikipedia notes that in TNG, Barclay was “often being used as comic relief”. When Barclay shows up in VOY, he’s shown as a person rather than a punchline, and they didn’t have to make him “normal” to do that. B'Elanna developing depression is also portrayed without becoming a joke.]
