How come kim..36 years in service, use to be a member of the famous voyager, and all he gets is a small science vessel ( i think that's what the nova class is!) i thought he'd probably get at least a galaxy class or the 25th century equivelent!
Think about it, in the Slipstream Accident episode (time and again), La Forge (yes that's geordi) even got a USS Challenger, Galaxy class...Dr Crusher got a bigger ship than kim and shes a doctor
The Federation now is the prime power of the quadrant already. (janeway arranged an high council seat!) even the jemhdar are obsolete..pretty cool I reckon
