Sci-fi 50: Capt. Kathryn Janeway

July 31, 2012 | 5:35 p.m.

Capt. Kathryn Janeway, "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995): Starfleet's first female captain to get her own TV show, Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) was also the toughest boss in Gene Roddenberry's sci-fi future since Capt. James T. Kirk (and, like him, an Iowa native). While some couldn't help chattering about her changing hairdos, we think Janeway stands out for her ability to beat back everyone who has crossed Voyager's path, be they Borg, Hirogen or Species 8472. While romance was rare for the woman who put duty first, she had close bonds with friends including Tuvok (Tim Russ), Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and Chakotay (Robert Beltran), as well as her beloved pots of coffee.
