I'm starting to believe I must be the only one who liked that show.
I liked it. It didn't have the standard 'Trim the cooling phase transition with atavachron damping field!' treknobabble. And I hated voyager, Janeway must have been worst captain ever.
About the fan sites:
There is no need to pander to them and give them first stuff, I agree... Unless the promised they would. If they don't keep promises that are easy to keep, what will they do when bigger problems come? It would have took few hours to take a few shots around the studio and put them on their part of the forum every week.
