Re: No female starship captains in the 2250s-60s?

I think you need to take this episode in the context that it was written in the 60's when the US was very male oriented and the idea of a woman in charge of anything was rare.

Fast forward to the late 90's & early 2000's when Voyager/Enterprise aired and the idea of a females in position of authority is pretty well accepted - so women have already been shown to command starships.

So yea, you get some inconsistency. I mean do whatever you want to make this fit the Star Trek narrative in your mind but it just comes down to the change in attitudes regarding women over 50 years.
