Re: Female Captains poll

If the moderators would like to, they could change the title of this thread to strong female leads and get rid of the poll.

I want to see Guinan and Leeta given the chance to be captains.
How do you know Guinan hasn't been a Captain once or twice?
MU-Leeta was briefly in command of MU-Defiant in The Soul Key. She may well have continued that role in Rise Like Lions - I don't know, I haven't read it.

Capt. Kira: In charge, but didn't really do anything while the story focused more on Vaughn, Ro, Taran'Atar, Shar, et al.
So, saving the station from a Jem'Hadar attack, nearly sacrificing her life to save the population of a nearby colony, actually leading Bajor into the Federation (which Sisko never did), going alone to defeat the parasite Matriarch, chasing down the perpetrator of the slaughter of Sidau village, and leading a mission to the Alternate Universe aren't "really doing anything." Right, okay then. Yeah, you're right, Kira's just a layabout.

Capt. Dax: Hasn't really had the chance to shine yet (we saw her in relation to Picard & Riker, and playing support for Bashir's covert mission, but we haven't really seen her work independently).
She was working independently in A Singular Destiny.

TrekLit/DS9-R fans! Want a different vision of the Ascendant conflict and the DS9 time gap?

Read DS9 SEASON 10 and DS9 SEASON 11 !

Not to mention that Kira's attainder was a big arc throughout the first handful of DS9R books.

I liked the Romulan Captain in That Which Divides. Interesting, capable lady.

I just finished that book and I agree. I also liked how much important work Uhura did. The ambassador Dana Sortino was amazing as well. I liked how she was not just another official that needed babysitting. She kicked butt.
