been much debate over Janice Lester's line of "Your world of
starship captains doe not allow women", implying that women
could not be starship captains. However, with the appearance of
a female captain in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home", Captain
Kathryn Janeway on "Star
Trek: Voyager" and Captain Hernandez on "Star
Trek: Enterprise", that line has since been refuted. The
most common explanations are that Lester was speaking figuratively;
that ship captains (mainly male ones) have no time for women. Another
common explanation is that Lester's mental condition led her to
believe the only reason she could not attain command was because
she was a woman.
