I think Jeri Ryan did a marvellous job in a very difficult role…and it was very clear to anyone with eyes in their head that Jeri’s beauty and sexuality was an important calling card for Star Trek in the numbers, and it worked.
…I thought maybe UPN would forego it with a woman captain, but it was clear: the audience wanted more sex and they got it, in the form of this lovely, talented actress.
