How is Janeway sexy?

I'm up to the end of season four in my rewatch, and I'm just not seeing it.

Help me out, Janeway lovers. What do you see in her?

Not that I find her particularly alluring, but one could see attractive qualities.

Poise, control, determination, intelligence, and finesse.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

She's beautiful as a woman not as a girl.
Forceful
Compromising
High Class
yet not arrogant
Loving, trustworthy, elegant and austere...

In short she's no H*

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

I didn't realise she was supposed to be attractive the first time around, but then I didn't think an old man like Picard was supposed to be trying to pick up chicks either.

Though I thought it was magnificent when Beverly and Riker where making the beast with two backs in the Host.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

I've never really understood either extreme criticism or overt praise of Janeway's looks. I admit, I have a bit of a thing for confident older women and Mulgrew is a pretty attractive lady for her age so I never get it when people almost puke at her getting dressed down. By the same token, I don't think she is a stunning, drool worthy knockout, so I am a bit confused there too.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

The funny thing is that she is identical almost between her roles in season 7 of Voyager and on Cheers... Maybe it's that she had more practice being a beautiful woman back when she was supposed to be a beautiful girl?

Physically, she looks fine, but it's definitely her personality that puts her over the top.

Yup, if she's not your thing, then you're not going to get it.

As for me?

Voice
Eyes
Determination
Intellect
Loyalty
Poise

That's just to name a few.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

It depends how you think I guess.

I've been in love with Kate Mulgrew since I was nine, back when Voyager started and I still think that she's one of the most beautiful women.

But for me, it was her actions. The way her eyes would get wide or how she would move. Not necessarily how she would speak or her face, although I did go onto appreciating both.

But then again, I also didn't marry my husband for his looks. I married him for his personality and brains. So I agree with AMG beauty, well she said sexiness, is in the eyes of the beholder. I second it.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

Mulgrew's is an elegant beauty. Elegance, I think, is a trait that some people find very sexually appealing and others are less affected by.

Re: How is Janeway sexy?

Elegance in overalls is still elegance?

if she was all that, then surely she would have had more suitors trying to woo her?

In the case of Tom she dismissed him "It's more likely that I raped you than that you raped me, but thank you for trying to make me feel pretty."

Now kashak and she were just lying to each other.

Mark was just some one to look after her dog.

That leader guy from Prime Factors? Tried to bed him through his stomach, but she waited too long and it all went to hell.

Then there's the dad from Charmed in workforce who was some sort of hermaphrodite so it's unknown what sort of mating rituals and taboos he practised or the two of them didn't need approval from a doctor before they interlocked genitals... It was a decent relationship but as soon as her real personality surfaced, she pushed him out of the picture.

And of course there was Neelix who didn't feel as if he was worthy enough to mention howscrummy she was in almost every way... But after all that lamb no wonder he had some taste for mutton.

Mulgrew maybe be pretty, but Janeway is just an old lady in overalls who seems absolutely complacent without a man propping her up... Though I could swear she was licking her lips when she asked Amelia to fly away with her.

Voyager was never a sexy show about sex.

Even after Jeri.

Re: How is Granny Janeway sexy?

I've long since perceived her as falling somewhat into the category of "Sexy Grandma".
If there is such a thing.
Y'now, older...but possibly still rather fiendish in the sack.

Kinda like this, maybe:



Not that I would know anything about that...anyways,
I guess it's pretty damn sexy when a woman
can flip you off while not even looking at you.
