Talk about dropping her in at the deep end...
poor lass. It'd be like if you took someone who'd worked in an office for years and dropped them on the factory floor.
Perhaps, but considering it was very early days it wouldn't have affected her that much.
I thought the performance was ok, she wanted to portray Janeway as a scientist first and a captain second making her quiet and thoughtful. Is an interesting Idea but I don't think the characteristics suit a captain. Mulgrew in comparison gives Janeway a lot of bite and an almost school head mistress like quality.
