We've seen Janeway get physical (heh) multiple times, and she's always kicked arse and taken names.
exodus is right, I think, about her.
Janeway has been a commander and now Captain, Beverly is a doctor. Just going by "Memorial" and Janeway was involved the same Cardassian wars as Miles O'Brian (Remember her story to Seven in "Prey"?), Janeway is used to being in combat situations and having to defend herself. Bev. isn't.
Taking hand to hand combat simulations isn't the same as being in real combat.
Ohhh I'm sorry - I thought the title of the thread was "deathmatch", not b*tch slap fest .... lol
As much as I liked the Janeway character, she was not a physical combat orientated character. Yes, yes they did get her to do a few physical things but they were never convincing - not like Seven or Be'Lanna (if Janeway was really a convincing fighter do you really think they wouldn't have made better use of this trait??).
"Macrocosm", "The Killing Game" and "Memorial" weren't convincing?
When have we EVER seen Beverly in anything close to that?
The hardest task Beverly ever did was wrestling the last croissant out of Picard's hands at breakfast. We're not talking about Janeway fighting Hirogen, just Beverly Crusher. It's acceptable Janeway will win regardless of how physical you believe she needs to be.
Come on, give it up.
Janeway can kick ass.
