    If you could have a coffee with Kate Mulgrew what would you say?

    I would say 'Thank you so much for being an inspiration to women. That we can achieve beyond our wildest dreams.

    Id also like to thank her for inspiring me to get back into education (and if Im fortunate enough a few years down the line) to say I had got my degree etc in a science etc.

    Id want to pick her brains on how she remembered everything for the one women show.

    And leave feeling I had met a truly wonderful person.

    I'd thank her for all she's done for women everywhere and then ask her to dance. Nothing too crazy; I like to do a little polka every now and then.

    "Kate.. I know you probably hear this all the time but.. I just want to thank you for your wonderful role as captain Janeway. You have given everyone in my family so much enjoyment. I have been a Star Trek fan for several decades and it is so wonderful to have a series with a woman captain in what is a male dominated franchise. You just light up the screen Kate! I love the way you played that character without the usual cliches, how much humour and life you brought to such a strong role. I've got a teenage son who loves Star Trek and I've started all his friends on Voyager.. It's very cool because they LOVE it and their first big sci fi love involves a woman captain. This is so much in contrast to everything else they watch, I feel like it chips away at the natural gender bias they absorb in all their media interests. I know it seems that I'm talking more about the character than about you but Janeway only works so wonderfully because of everything you brought to her. Thank you SO much.

    Would you mind signing this napkin? The one you've left a bit of lipstick on?"

    Mulgrew herself has said that at times she thought that was how the character of Janeway came across...just think it'd be interesting to hear her perspective on the character!

    Plus you're making me drink coffee, so I'm not gonna be mightily impressed =p

    I would ask her about Tea at Five and her thoughts about Katharine Hepburn (both before and after performing her).

    Then I'd move on to Voyager and gush over Janeway and geek out and spend most of my time trying to hold back those weird giggles that sometimes come over.

    Sometimes it is not enough to defeat your enemies, you must annihilate them!

    I would probably ask her about her experiences on the set of Voyager, both positive and negative. I would also thank her for bringing a strong female lead character to the screen in the man's men's world of Star Trek.

    Then I would order us some more coffee. Black.

    That's a nice way to put it.

    I was just going to be ghetto blunt and ask: "Why you such a bitch?':lol:

    I'd be too awestruck to say anything. I might ask about her acting role as Katherine Hepburn, though..
