I didn't know that. It just makes me despise the man so much more. (I went off to college and lost access to TV on a regular basis just after Voyager debuted, and I *loved* the idea of Kathryn Janeway. I'm so frustrated by how the show ended up going.)
Grr. It could have been so cool...
In some universe, there's a cool Voyager out there. I just wish it were mine.
