The poll options are of course meant to be a joke. I will have to read Children of the storm. Thanks for the tip.
Just as long as you're aware she doesn't feature hugely in it(part of a nine ship fleet so unavoidable), but the fleet commander(Afsarah Eden) is also a woman. And it's a fantastic book.
Would have loved her to be "fleet captain" instead though, would have been a cool TOS callback.
