Voyager Had Another Major Star Trek First Besides Janeway

  • Star Trek: Voyager introduced Lt. B'Elanna Torres as the series' first female Chief Engineer, highlighting the show's commitment to inclusivity and diversity.
  • B'Elanna Torres was chosen for the position based on her exceptional problem-solving abilities and unorthodox approaches, which proved invaluable during Voyager's challenging journey.
  • The importance of B'Elanna Torres' groundbreaking role in Star Trek: Voyager paved the way for future female Chief Engineers in subsequent series such as Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Star Trek: Voyager is lauded for having Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) as Star Trek's first female captain to lead a series, but Voyager also had another major Star Trek first for women in its senior staff. Star Trek: The Original Series counted only Lt. Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), but Star Trek: The Next Generation includes Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) as its Chief Medical Officer and Counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis). Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's female senior staff members are First Officer Colonel Kira Nerys (Nana Visitor) and Science Officer Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell).
While Star Trek: Voyager's cast initially includes just two women among its senior staff, both of them carry a significant amount of weight in the decision-making process aboard the stranded starship USS Voyager. Captain Janeway's leadership sets the tone for Voyager's crew and ensures that Starfleet values are upheld during Voyager's journey home. The one responsible for ensuring that Voyager keeps running smoothly, amidst a dearth of Starfleet support, lack of supplies, and need for extraordinarily creative problem-solving, is Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Dawson), Voyager's Chief Engineer.
