Well I think it's interesting that they gave Janeway this gorgeous xo, who was really a former Maquis Captain who agreed to the position. Not truly a subordinate as designated by Starfleet, but at first the enemy if you will. Then gave these characters sexual tension and finally hid behind protocol. Fine. So maybe not on the ship. But not at all? Not even when they got home? Interesting. What if the roles were reversed and Chakotay was Captain and he captured Janeway, who was gorgeous and came on to him? I wonder how that would have played out. Would the male viewing audience see it as realistic that she would be appointed his OX and nothing at all happen for seven years?
