Captain Katherine Janeway casting history (missing- plz add)[edit]

I am amazed that this article mentions absolutely nothing of the fact that Kate Mulgrew at first was not actually cast as Katherine Janeway; It was some French-Canadian actress, and she actually even filmed an episode which can be found on youtube; she was fired due to 'creative differences' with the directors and writers (she thought that Captain should be icey and cold and very quiet, which the writers strongly disagreed with) AND she also cited that she had too much trouble memorizing all the 'science-tekkie-mumbo-jumbo' words as she called them . Oh, and she also cited inability to keep up with the very demanding scheduling (all in all, she was really awful, and I personally am REALLY glad that they chose to cast Kate Mulgrew instead, not just because I really like her, but also because..well she just IS Captain Janeway. Anyways, all of this information (err..aside from my personal opinion, that is) is verifiable and can be referenced and cited. I believe it most definitely should be included in the article, especially since a considerable part of the article is about the cast and gues-stars and even contains information on which actor/character crossed over from which other ST series and the history of some of the cast. I cannot be bothered to do this myself (just too lazy and not enough time) . I really really hope someone would take care of this. If not, then I guess at SOME point I will. Other than that, I think the article is great! Cheers! :-) Ammau (talk) 07:47, 6 November 2010 (UTC) (Ammau (talk) 07:47, 6 November 2010 (UTC))

Geneviève Bujold, a stunning actress who gained note in the 1966 King of Hearts. It was a bold try; it's unfortunate that she didn't work out, but Mulgrew worked fine. 192.94.65.52 (talk) 17:21, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Nit pick, characters name is Kathryn Janeway. Katherine is a re-direct to Kathryn. - 220 of Borg 18:37, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Classic/Great Themes[edit]

Before the series started, the PR ads said that the series represented "the journey home," one of the classic "great themes" that all stories could be boiled down to. I think something like 8 were cited. What are/were some of the other 6-7 themes (the literary equivalent to Wonders of the World). 192.94.65.52 (talk) 17:27, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

VHS / DVD releases[edit]

A section on home video release should be added — Preceding unsigned comment added by 167.202.201.5 (talk) 11:27, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Feel free to go ahead and make that happen. Ckruschke (talk) 19:53, 25 July 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke

EEH (Emergency Engineering Holographic program)[edit]

The Emergency Engineering holographic program would be just like the EMH in that in the event of the chief engineer not being present or worse dead, the EEH (Emergency Engineering holographic program) would supplement the absent/or dead chief engineer until a replacement was found. The EEH would have all the knowledge of warp mechanics and the necessary knowledge for any and all other events engineering related. Andrew.estes27 (talk) 23:46, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Are you making a request? There is no EEH mentioned in Trek lore outside of Star Trek Online. Certainly not in any Star Trek: Voyager episode I know of, which is what this article is about. So I don't see how it could be added. ——Digital Jedi Master (talk) 00:20, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Agreed - I was really scratching my head when I saw the thread title - I've seen every episode and there isn't an EEH. Ckruschke (talk) 16:51, 31 March 2014 (UTC)Ckruschke

lead section[edit]

The opening section claims "The show ... begins on the far side of the Milky Way galaxy, 75,000 light-years from Earth." Actually, it begins in the Alpha Quadrant, near Deep Space 9, before going to the Badlands where it is grabbed by the Caretaker and taken to the far side of the galaxy. ◦◦derekbd◦my talk◦◦ 02:00, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Yes. But I think it begins on Earth however, as most Star Treks do (all of them maybe? I believe so except DS9 maybe) in Spacedock, preparing to launch a new and advanced ship. Maybe it should say something like, "In the first episode the Voyager ends up on the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy," or "Voyager ends up on the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy almost at the start of the first episode..." but I think it takes twenty minutes or half an hour... :) ~ R.T.G 20:09, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
