Pretty much what happened. They kept replacing their henchmen with new ones that hogged the spotlight. It's a real shame given the potential they had.

Yeah, I never understood why FW Baxter got such mean-spirited treatment either, the writers must've really hated that character for some reason. Maybe in the next OT crossover they could bring him back and give him a less cruel sendoff.

No, they did that to make him a sympathetic villain. I don't see why you would think they hated him when they kept bringing him back. They could have just had him ignored after Season 2.

If they genuinely liked him, then having his character arch end with him getting trapped in a dimensional void and left to die was an odd way of showing their fondness. That seems like they couldn't care less about him to me.

That's the whole point. Not every character gets some sort of happy ending.
