Re: Highest Ranking Woman?

As has been said, the big example of a woman who betrayed the Enterprise is Marla McGivers. She deserved prison.
And this makes her a bad role model, why? She's a strong character who gets what she wants, regardless of which side she plays. (Remarkably, nobody got hurt in the episode where she was a leading adversary, as opposed to virtually every other example of human treachery.)

Lt. Carolyn Palamas went pretty far astray with Apollo and then came back to her senses just in time.
Given that she was under truly divine influence, she can hardly be considered any worse than the barbaric Kirk we witness in, say, "Day of the Dove". Both are appropriate examples of how people of TOS do not want to behave.
