Re: Janice Lester / Turnabout Intruder

Number One was an Executive Officer, but still not a Captain. Not a single female Starfleet Captain ever appeared on TREK until ''The Voyage Home.'' Shaky writing notwithstanding, I've never doubted Lester's ''no female Captains'' comment to be valid. She resents Kirk to be sure, but she resented being barred from captaincy so much she was willing to alter her sexuality to achieve that. Even if she possessed self-hatred, the Starfleet rule only poisoned and exacerbated it.
