Rachel Garrett was a badass Captain, who deserved the E-C. Its just such a shame she was KIA, I would have loved to seen more of her. She is definately the kind of CO I would have followed into a hopeless battle.
Luckily though Tricia O'Neil returned twice more to Trek as a Klingon scientist (Kurak?) and then as Korinas in DS9 (who is another character I would have loved to have seen return).
