While we are on the subject; who has any existing Star trek novels or short stories featuring female leads to recommend? Janeway and Voyager are a given as it is a huge series.
I'd recommend Articles of Federation. Its not about Starfleet, but about the current President of the Federation. Both the President and the chief of staff are women.
One of The Lost Era books focuses on Captain Rachel Garret and her time in command of the Enterprise C.
Of course most of the early DS9 relaunch books feature Kira as the lead character since Sisko is with the Prophets.
