I mean, during the original run there weren't the instantaneous social media fan reactions that there are now, but producers and showrunners still heard from viewers/critics and had to have realized how unpopular Neelix was. Right? Their reaction to increase his presence mystified me: "It's a shame he's restricted to the kitchen! Let's make him an ambassador so he can also go on almost every away mission and provide extra counsel to Janeway! Who better?" It didn't seem like Ethan Phillips was ever asked to tone it down or modify his fussy mannerisms to make Neelix more palatable, either. 2 Link to comment
