Una McCormack: The Autobiography of Kathryn Janeway Kathryn Janeway is known for her strength, drive, dedication, and nurturing nature. But how did her childhood and early career shape the woman who led her crew back from the Delta Quadrant, against all odds?
In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and C Bryan Jones are joined by Kathryn’s ghostwriter—also know as Una McCormack—to find out how parents, grandparents, and even that pesky little sister, helped a young girl from Indiana become one of Starfleet’s most decorated admirals. We also discuss the important role that mentors play in our lives and how the Federation–Cardassian Wars influenced Janeway and those growing up in Starfleet families during the 24th century. In our news segment, we review the first two issues of the Star Trek: Voyager IDW comic miniseries Seven’s Reckoning.
