Kate Mulgrew answered fan questions recently, revealing the real person behind the actress and sharing insight as to what influences helped her play Janeway.

Mulgrew Would Play Janeway Again

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

It has been fifteen years since Star Trek: Voyager: Caretaker first aired and the USS Voyager, commanded by Captain Janeway, was stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Kate Mulgrew, who played Janeway for the seven year run, talks about her time on the show and her thoughts about Star Trek: Voyager and its legacy.

Star Trek: Voyager was important for one big reason according to Mulgrew. “Probably, without putting to fine a point on it, [the lasting legacy of Voyager is] the first female captain,” she said. “That was a bold and I think very wise decision, by the powers that be at Paramount and UPN. It will be remembered that way. It will be remembered as an intrepid ship, an interesting crew, a very innovative creation of The Doctor, and what that meant with technology and embracing humanity and vice-versa. Janeway’s grasp of loneliness and aloneness. The distinction between the two. Her love for her crew and the transcendent nature of that love, which I am not sure had been seen before.”

Mulgrew explained why she hadn’t yet seen the Star Trek reboot. “I haven’t, but not for any bad reason,” she said. “It’s a reason of comfort. I did Star Trek myself, and I want to enjoy it when I see it, I want to be comfortable when I see it, so I’m going to wait until I can see it in my living room. I understand that both of those young men [Pine and Quinto] are extraordinary. I’m sure it’s beautifully done. I just want to see it in the comfort of my home.

Would Mulgrew ever play Janeway again? “I would,” she said. “I’d love to return to Janeway! I’d love to do her in a movie, it would be great.”
