Re: Highest Ranking Woman?

TOS also frequently had women who became infatuated with men and subsequently betrayed everybody...
...But themselves. In essence, these "frequent" cases (care to name a second one?) were downright Nietzschean in their unadulterated devotion to themselves. Surely the very definition of a "strong" character?

The TOS writers clearly did not have progressive views on the emotional and psychological integrity of females.
At least these women weren't soulless minions of orthodoxy. "Integrity" is a poor word for describing military servitude and unquestioning following of orders, IMHO.
