Kate Mulgrew on Janeway’s appearance

The hair, the bosom, the boots, the voice. I mean, it was a CONSTANT examination of my gender. Until I finally marched into the producer’s office and I said ‘You know, Rick, you’ve GOT to stop this. If those people are examining my bosoms with the same intensity as you all are, it gives Star Trek a very bad name indeed.’ Right? Why don’t you just let them learn to trust me, care about me, follow me. Let me become the captain I want to be. Let me endow Janeway with Mulgrew, Mulgrew with Janeway, and then we’ll make a marriage that will last. Otherwise you’re looking at a divorce here.
