This week The Trekkie Girls continue their look at The Women Of Star Trek by scanning Voyager and Enterprise.

By the time Star Trek: Voyager launched, fans felt overdue a female Captain. Captain Janeway was an exceptional commander and Kate Mulgrew was the perfect actress for the part.

Mulgrew, even with limited knowledge of the Star Trek fandom understood the enormity of her position. She learned about science and technology so she could deliver a more authentic character and speaks passionately about these subjects at conventions.

Much like Nichelle Nicholls, Kate Mulgrew has also become an advocate for girls entering STEM careers.
