Notes and References:

At one point in the episode, Jarrah references Gene Roddenberry’s assistant and can’t remember his name. She meant Richard Arnold, research consultant and archivist on TNG. We also stole a question (Who do you think is more badass: Ensign Ro or Major Kira?) from the podcast Subspace Transmissions. Finally, here’s where you can find the Ishka as Rosie the Riveter graphic.

And here’s a quote from Kate Mulgrew in Starlog magazine (March 1995):

“Janeway is the Captain and she has everywhere to go as a character. I would like to take her down into the deepest depths of hell and bring her back up again. I would like to see her weeping. I would like to see her out of control, but only for a while. I would like to see her make calls that everyone else is opposed to. I would like to see her experience every shade, color and emotion. All of it. And, I’m sure she will.”
