The crew chats about what makes a good friendship, onscreen and off, and the best of the best friendships in Star Trek, as well as those we wish we got to see more of and some missed opportunities.
We have partnered with several other Star Trek podcasts and fansites for the #TrekkiesTogether campaign. This campaign is about coming together as a community to support those fighting for racial justice and working to build a more equal future. As part of this campaign, Women at Warp has made a central donation to The East of the River Mutual Aid Fund from Black Lives Matter in Washington DC (as well as individual local donations). Please join us if you are able.

No mention of Janeway and Seven?
Sadly we couldn’t possibly cover every possible friendship in Trek in the time we had available. We had tons of listener suggestions and picked the ones that were the most commonly suggested or that we thought were the most unusual or interesting. We will be doing an ep all about Seven at some point and will make sure to discuss more about her relationship with Janeway.
Cool… Of course, those two have lots of subtext, too!
Definitely! We actually talked about that in our recent ep on Janeway’s love interests too, with Seven as a very popular fan ship of Janeway’s.
How about Picard/Guinan and Guinan/Ro? In a couple of episodes Guinan calls Ro out on her behavior and attitude.
Also, Uhura needs her own Woman At Warp episode, for so many reasons.
Hi Margo! You’re in luck on the second part – we already have an Uhura episode that you can listen to here: https://www.womenatwarp.com/episode-28-her-name-means-freedom/
Good to know! Thank you.
Hi, my friend Mary Fan who is also an accomplished scifi writer and Star Trek blogger wrote a great article on this very subject of friendships between women on Star Trek.
