Star Trek: Voyager took the long-lived Star Trek franchise to new places. On screen, the crew of Voyager had to face unfamiliar territory, new alien enemies and allies, and conflict between the two stranded crews that combined on the ship out of necessity. Off screen, Star Trek was breaking into new territory by casting a female captain to lead the series. Writers and producers also had to start from scratch on the characters and places featured in Voyager 's adventures without relying on many of the standbys built in previous series. These new developments came with their fair share of conflict, arduous work, creative struggles, and behind-the-scenes drama. From the beginning, the creators were prepared for resistance to the idea of a female captain, and casting the right lead actress was more difficult than expected.
I guess I never realized how big of a piece of crap Rick Berman was

But did they ever discuss character arcs with me? Very rarely, to be honest. That call came from Brannon Braga probably two weeks before we started filming that one.
Star Trek started as a humble five-year mission, but the franchise soon went into warp speed. Unfortunately for many of the men and women who've starred in the venerable franchise's many films and TV series over the last five decades and counting , there seems to be a side effect of Star Trek : it can be something of a career killer. After wearing the same Starfleet uniform for years, many Trek actors seem to fall out of the spotlight.
