Interesting that many people are ready to send Janeway fans off to the asylum. You sprout things like 'find a real person to be your hero'. Well just cause a person is REAL, doesn't mean that the things those people do to inspire people are real.
Do you think JFK is real? NO!. His policies were created by many minds and his speeches were written by another mans inflictions. REAL???
What about Elvis??? He suppose to be real, but wait; he sung songs from other people's hearts, the songwriter's thoughts.
Debate all you want, but Janeway is no less real then anyone who inspired another. Living and breathing or pages in a book...doesn't really matter if they bring you joy!
