I just watched the episode, "Muse" where B'ellana is stranded on a planet and gets mixed up with a playwright. I could not help but think there must have been a backstory based on reality behind the idea for what I watched. Was there ever a time when Voyager was at odds with Paramount? Some of the themes in this story reflect a possibility of that being true. This, along with a one salient plot point really got me thinking. The plot point? B'Ellana tells the playwright that his work, his words, his play could tell a story that would affect current events and perhaps prevent a war. Now THAT sounds an awful lot like Roddenberry's core truth when conceiving TOS.
