If you were making a list of the all-time great female captains in science fiction, then Kate Mulgrew’s Captain Kathryn Janeway could easily earn a top spot. The brave commander of Star Trek: Voyager took to Twitter to show support for Brie Larson’s turn as Captain Marvel.

Mulgrew, who just wrapped the final season of Orange Is the New Black , was a major role model and heroine to a generation of geeky girls (and boys). It’s delightful to see her passing the torch from one Captain to another. Janeway was the first ever female captain in the Star Trek universe, with Voyager running for seven seasons on UPN (remember UPN?!) from 1995-2001. Janeway was last seen in the 2002 feature film Star Trek: Nemesis, where she had been promoted to admiral.

Now that OITNB is finished, and CBS All Access continues to launch new shows set in the Star Trek universe, it’s time for a Janeway spin-off series. After all, if Picard can get his own show, why not give Janeway a shot?

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
