Re: Kate Mulgrew's decision to not have a romance
I haven't finished watching season 7 yet, but it seems to me that part of it is that Janeway is punishing herself by staying alone. Starfleet really should send Voyager a counselor hologram.
Just have Troi send her a message, "If you can't handle it, maybe you should consider transfering to a transport ship. There's a lot less pressure there."
