You can of course interpret her like this but bad writing was the real cause. Kirk also has some differences in him but they emerged because the original character sketch and the early scripts differed from Shatner's energetic portrayal. In Janeway's case the writers simply did not know what to do with her.

I really don't see why it this is so hard to get that women are captured in role conflicts. Take Palin, she wonderfully pretended to be the sexy librarian, the caring mother, the politician and the defender of the nation. She fulfilled all potential roles and fantasies (among them by the way your woman with a gun idea) and that's why she was so popular.

My only argument is that we have to get out of this totally.
