    Listening is not the same as agreeing.

    And anyway I personally love Janeway as a character. I just read Captain's Table: Fire Ship, in my opinion easily the best Janeway story in any medium and a personal favorite; she's the only character in it that we know, it's all and only about her.

    She had a few writers that didn't seem to get her properly, but when written well even all those contradictions can come together into a uniquely compelling person.

    I liked the idea of Janeway, but not the execution, and couldn't stand Voyager.

    Why not take it further and challenge fanficwriters to submit a resurrection story? Kind of like a caption contest. Winner gets a box of rice a roni or a board game. . . .

    Am I in the forum for that idea?

    It was started during the "Great Janeway wars" :rofl:, and I guess it was an attempt by the Janewayites (they seem to prefer that term, although MJF was coined by one of them, too IIRC :shrug:) to "prove" that TrekLit readers are sexist thugs who hated Janeway because she was a strong woman.

    P.S.: Kind of a appropriate that a Janeway thread becomes a "Zombie thread". :lol:

    I'm sure this petetion will be far more effective than the previous ones.

    Can't vote. I do care about her, but I don't think the sum total of my feelings is either like or dislike.
