Enjoying these Podcasts, thank you for posting it…You ladies Rock!
I’m glad you raise the point here that Paris is used as the entry point character, or even as an alternate protagonist. In the series Bible, he and not Chakotay was the second character detailed. Of course, he is the only white male human among the principle characters (as opposed to cast).
I remember, when “Voyager” was coming out, they seemed to make a big deal about Janeway being a woman and Tuvok being black. Two years earlier, on “Deep Space Nine”. nothing was said about Sisko being black, or that he had a female first officer.
