Quote from: Tyler on January 02, 2009, 06:19:31 PMI've always find it interesting that so many folks don't like Janeway as captain. I felt she was a great blend of a "take charge" and "make the hard choices" attitude, while really caring about her crew. I felt she came across as seeing the big picture and making good decisions. I thought she was very clever and displayed a commanding presence. I also felt that Kate Mulgrew played the part very well. I had no problem liking her or believing her in the role.Maybe it wouldn't be bad having a dorm mother as the captain, especially so far from home.
Quote from: Tyler on January 03, 2009, 02:46:58 PMThanks, Kenny. I am as well. Voyager often gets cited as the weakest series, but I really enjoyed it. I think it had more mind-opening storylines in some ways than the other series. Deep concepts were presented in many episodes. Voyager sometimes reminded me of the Twilight Zone in terms of the weird situations that would often be presented. I think some folks missed the familiar territory of the Federation, but I felt the Delta quadrant setting freed up the writers to explore some very new and interesting concepts.And I liked all the characters ... especially when Seven came aboard.
