One think I admired most about Voyager was that gender played into the series very little. The fact that Kathryn Janeway was a female didn't matter to those who served under her. What really mattered was that she was competent, caring, hardworking, and willing to do what had to be done to get her crew home.
Wrong.

There is no human on human sexual/gender bias in the future.

Kathryn didn't have to over come shit.

Education is free and no one has a substandard of living.

In fact being the daughter of an Admiral tapped a level of nepotism/old school tie elitism which is the closest thing they probably get to Racism, even though it was working in reverse (unless you count all the more illegible/law abiding citizens whose place in line was displaced by Kathryn making a mockery of due process who were being oppressed by Starfleet Legacies?) which really means that she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth despite there being no money and no class system that such a thing should be impossible.
Well Janeway always showed favoritism towards Tom Paris. I'm sure the fact that his daddy was an Admiral she was fond of had absolutely nothing to do with it either.

Re: Please don't airlock me . . .

Considering the bubble Voyager is stuck in, assumed dead 70 thousand light years away, kathryn doesn't get any quidproquo for agreeing to abide to a greasy system that doesn't acknowledge her.... But there's the other thing: Janeway was "Captain" Owen Paris' Science Officer for quite some time.

Even if she wasn't having an affair with Owen, she probably still thinks of any Paris as an extension of Owen and therefore family.

JanewayRulz!, I can't even . . . I don't . . . I just . . . I died at that video. Oh god, I'm dying here. I don't think I've laughed this hard in a very long time, but that freaking video has me snorting. >.>

Kate Mulgrew is an amazing actress, but what really endeared her to my heart is her work with Alzheimer's research. I know she lost her mother to the disease, and I lost my grandfather to it, so I admire the fact that she's such a champion for research and whatnot. She's so passionate with everything she does, she's dedicated and wonderful. Plus, she's just amazing and versatile.

There's a con going to Tennessee in September (I think . . .) and it's only four or five hours from me. Kate's gonna be there and you can bet your sweet buns that I'll be there. I fell off my chair when I saw that she's making an appearance and since it's so close, I decided that I would be there no matter what. Now I just have to wait for it . . . Sad day.

Ryn... I aim to please.

Speaking of which... here's a little J/7 that everyone can love.

Re: Please don't airlock me . . .

The thing about Voyager is, if you take the top 40 or 50 episodes, and ignore the rest exist, you've got a damn good show.

My favorite 10 episodes (No particular order):
Scorpion
Blink of an Eye
Child's Play
Counterpoint
Death Wish
Deadlock
Year of Hell
Course: Oblivion
Bride of Chaotica
Timeless
