    Rachel Garrett, savior of the Federation, would like a word with you. Tryla Scott, Silva La Forge, and future-Beverly-Crusher also await. :borg:


    My answers:
    1. 8472
    2. Intrepid-class Starships
    3. the EMH

    That's the top 3 anyway.

    Not to mention the captain of the Saratoga an STIV (who looks a little like Silva La Forge) and Erica Benteen.

    I'm a tech-head so I'll say:

    Intrepid-class Starship
    EMH
    Quantum Slipstream Drive
    Borg Transwarp Hub
    Think Tank
    Seven of Nine
    Prometheus-class Starship

    I thought of Saratoga's captain and Phillipa Louvois ("Measure of a Man") as well, but wanted to keep it to three. :cool:

    Erica Benteen post-dates Janeway's IRL introduction, but she's excellent too. And of course Erika Hernandez.

    And of course there's the Romulan Commander ("Charvanek" in some sources), Sela, and Toreth, for some non-Fed examples. And in TrekLit, wellll... we'll start with Kira Nerys and Ezri Dax.

    Perhaps I should clarify--a female captain as the star of the show.

    Better?!? ;)

    I'll even go one step farther

    Kathryn Janeway

    Go ahead, caller. I'm listening...
    In my opinion, Voyager's greatest (?!) contribution was in poorly written stories that took Star Trek far enough off the rails that no more really good Trek could be made without a semi-reboot of the franchise. Which resulted in the excellent movie earlier this year.

    So, um, right on, Voyager! Yeah....

    I did kinda like the Voth, Species 8472 (before the writers immediately turned around and neutered them), the concept of the EMH, and the design of the Delta Flyer.

    Ha! Not sure I would say greatest, but I can't in good conscience completely disagree. :lol:

    As for what I do think VOY's greatest contributions are:

    -the doctor. Picardo was a god among men in that cast.

    -Uh...I'm sure there are others. I WOULD say a female captain TV show lead, but she was kind of a pretty bad character ultimately. She could be a delusional loony, an idiot, a brilliant leader, a badass, etc....depending what writer was onboard and what the script required. Every episode was a damned roulette. Will Janeway be crazy? Stupid? Cool? Place your bets!

    I was inspired by the Equinox and her Captain Ransom. :)

    And of course the show has some great characters and actors.
