Jennifer Lien is a very beautiful woman indeed, as is Jeri Ryan. Both beautiful in different ways. Lien had a sexiness to her voice IMO, while Seven was too Borg (although that was necessary for her character).

Precisely, the show needed a change at that moment and it worked in some ways but also made it lame in a different way.

Seven didn't have any of this, Ryan played Seven like a female Vulcan.
The Borg queen, Seven, T'Pol ... they really went for the cold sexiness or shall I even say dominatrix type.

Makes you wonder what Berman and Braga are into making such characters!

That was pretty much what I was going to say but my computer wasn't working properly. They obviously went off the idea of the school marm after Season2/3 of Voyager. I bet those Janeway buns of steel was the same hairdos as their Maths teacher at school.

I'm not buying into this "they needed someone to stand-up to Janeway" argument, or they needed someone who could bring out the motherly qualities of Janeway. Earlier in the series, it was B'elana who "stood up to Janeway, " and whom Janeway saw as a younger version of herself. Go watch the episode "Parallax," from Season one. This leaves me to conclude that Seven only added sex appeal, and served to allow more Borg stories to be created, in all other respects she weakened the show by taking away potential stories from other members of the crew.

Many men go for that, and B&B knew that, and thier target demographic.

Well we don't see too many "Warm and Fuzzy" Borg in Trek...
