    ^I don't get it either. The only metaphor I've heard butterflies used in has to do with extreme nervousness.

    Thanks, Janeway is just above all the hate, as can be seen here.

    Aw, how could anyone hate Janeway? She's got all the best attributes of both Kirk and Picard. Love her!

    I love the way Mulgrew plays the lines sometimes. She's got this wonderful, almost Shatner-ian delivery down pat. I seriously sometimes wonder if she actually used to do it on purpose.

    Anyway, curious R. Star, who is your favorite Captain?

    .... and glad you are having fun, Teacake.

    :crazy: how can so many ppl be so wrong... the show is a great combo of a horrible actress, a capt who throws away the prime directive more than all the previous captains put together, a starship that looks like a toilet seat cover & nacelles that serve no purpose to rise before going to warp :rolleyes:

    Every time I hear her talk, I want to scream " I AM A ROBOT" or "I AM THE REAL BORG QUEEN, CAN'T YOU TELL BY THE WAY I SPEAK" :guffaw:

    All of the TREK captains have either made bad decisions or behaved in a way that made me question their ability to command. All of them. And yet, all of them have also proven to be very good at their job. So, I never understood this extreme criticism of Janeway, unless it has something to do with her gender.



    I didn't really find that funny. I guess I'm not a "SOUTH PARK" fan.

    True, but they weren't played by Kate Mulgrew...

    To be fair, I think Archer is equally unqualified, and might be worse than Janeway in command ability.

    But, of all the things I didn't care for in Voyager, Janeway was not one of them. Aside from some lame writing moments, Mulgrew's performance was just fine.

    We'll have to agree to differ on that one...

    Every major character/actor has his or her own hate club. Just the way of things.

    This is how I feel about these "why the hate" questions too. I think a lot of "captain hate" or character hate of any kind is over-represented on the internet relative to reality. I think there are more fans of any given captain more than there are haters. I personally like all the captains. I have my favorites (KIRK 4 LYFE) but I like them all.

    Easy. If Janeway was wearing the bun of steel, we were getting the stiff-ass, non compromising iron lady. If she wasn't, then we were getting the emotionally vulnerable Janeway.
