Before Captain Janeway, Kate Mulgrew, Star Trek: Voyager has the actor another iconic role as captain of the fan-favorite until he stopped.
Star Trek takes a deliberate approach by using a player’s ensemble to convey the story. However, even with the dynamics of the group, the captain stood as a pillar of the main place of everything rests. This is why Star Trek: Voyager’s manufacturer s faced with the gut-wrenching reality when the first person they choose to play Captain Janeway – Geneviève Bujold – is anything but the mission is ready.
Bujold is one of the most outstanding in the world of entertainment. For more than half a century, he has appeared in many movies and series iconic. So casting him as Captain Elizabeth Janeway (later renamed Kathryn Janeway to actor Kate Mulgrew) looks like a smart move. But when Voyager moved to production, the alarm bell starts to ring on the first day at the filming location.
Immediately visible that there’s something not functioning. While Bujold is the player who hand-picked, most of his experience is in the film, not television on the series of science fiction episodic long and demanding. Report unhappiness grows due to the constant demands of day-to-day production strictly. Executive producer Rick Berman confirms her appearance was less than ideal, and unhappiness Bujold’s own caused him to leave the captain’s chair at the beginning of September 1994, after only two days of filming. To make matters worse, the pilot of Voyager 23 million dollars to keep the production rolling to meet the date of the premiere.
Voyager will be one of the crown jewels for the United Paramount Network new. The plan was created more than 20 years. Back in the mid-1970s, Paramount is planning to launch their network themselves with the power series Star Trek new. Its creator, Gene Roddenberry, is committed to creating Star Trek II. However, the plan eventually collapsed, and the new network was delayed until the 1990s.
Thus, the Voyager will be used to launch UPN. But with the release date already selected, show it without the crew members is the most important. So the producer finally returns to the previous option, Kate Mulgrew. After initially ambivalent about the role at the audition first, Mulgrew wants to get another chance after Bujold resigned.
Mulgrew, as Bujold, is a powerhouse performance and has more experience with episodic television. Of Hope Ryan up your Heart Rate, Mulgrew has the power to take command and helped lead the Voyager, both in front of and behind the screen. As exemplified by the Orange Is the New Black and Mr. Mercedes, Mulgrew bold with the choice of his character such an interesting decision on the bridge of the ship Starfleet. Thus, the audience pays attention, and Captain Janeway Mulgrew becomes a fan favorite despite a difficult start.
