A list of actresses who were considered for the role of Captain Janeway.

I really only knew about Genevive Bujold, who's screentest really shows why she wouldn't have worked. No further comment.

I won't bash the individual actresses, but be general. A lot of the candidates can only do "tough" and "soft". Janeway needs a larger range than that.

I'm reminded of Dylan Hunt on Andromeda. The role isn't quite Kirk, Picard, or Sisko, it's something else entirely. As a whole the candidates could do "Kirk" or "Picard", but few could do "Sisko".
mudshark: Nate's just being...Nate.
Zeke: It comes nateurally to him.

mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really -- it's just a bad idea.

Sa'ar Chasm on the forum: Sit back, relax, and revel in the insanity.

Adam Savage: I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Crow T. Robot: Oh, stop pretending there's a plot. Don't cheapen yourself further.
