Kate Mulgrew Says She Wants a Voyager Film + Watch Her Discuss Her Role on Warehouse 13 [Video]

During a recent interview, Kate Mulgrew, who played Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager, talked about being the first female in the starring role as a captain in a Star Trek series. Mulgrew also discussed the current direction the franchise has taken with JJ Abrams and crew at the helm along with her hopes for a Voyager film.

“My greatest thought was that we really must break the glass ceiling here in Star Trek. It’s not enough that I was the first female captain. There needs to be a continual push to open the door for women in positions of authority. In an absolutely equal way, of course. In talking to Bill I thought ‘This has been very much a boy’s club for a long, long time.’ I had the privilege and honor to be the first female, but that’s an establishment that needs now to be developed.” she said.

Shifting focus to the current state of the Star Trek franchise, Mulgrew talked about the possibility of characters from Voyager appearing in the rebooted film series.

“They’ve worked long and hard for the past few years on the prequel notion,” she noted. “but I think they should go on and develop what happens to the characters after Voyager landed — In a movie.”

Watch Mulgrew discuss her recent role on Warehouse 13 and her character in Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV from Dragon*Con in Atlanta last week, below.

    I would seriously LOVE to see a Voyager film. Although, with the series ending so long ago and many of the actors having moved on, I think that’s just a pipe dream. I guess we’ll always have some of those great 2 parters.

      I still think the idea of direct-to-DVD or direct-to-iTines or Netflix films could be a good move for Paramount and CBS. Why is it that Stargate can have them, but Trek can’t? The fan base is ready and waiting.

        No kidding. I guess Paramount isn’t into making money or something.

        I agree with this-and Star Trek Voyager’s fanbase is bigger than Stargate’s by about a million! A couple of made-for–TV movies on CBS, the CW, or Showtime wouldn’t be out of place.

    The only way they could possibly make this work is if they included cast from across all of the spin-off shows. Indeed it may even be possible to include TOS actors.
    As to what platform to make it available…. well clearly a cinematic release won’t be happening so it will have to take, as Borg King suggests, the Stargate route.
    Whether they could recoup what would inevitably be a big budget is one for the accountants to decide, but I can certainly believe there is a good sized audience waiting out there.

    If they made a Voyager film reboot (which would be awesome) with a new cast, my vote goes to…

    Sigourney Weaver as Janeway.  Yes, cheesy, I know.  But who cares?

    • Borg King

      I could be wrong, but I think Sigourney may be older than Kate. While it would be interesting, I’m not sure moviegoers would see her as fitting in with her “young and hip” co-stars.

        Ah, well…she could pretend to be younger, as most actors do these days… 😛

      Sigourney Weaver as Janeway. I can see it now, Janeway rescues 7of9 from the Borg and she collapses and a bavy Alien pops out of her chest and takes over the Borg. Thus making the Borg even more deadly. Borg with Nanobot injectors and very acidic saliva. Maybe even a multi layered tongue with multi levels of teeth.

        Mm…sounds very original. Now, where does the vomiting exploding android come in?

    A Voyager movie? I can’t think of anything I’d want to see less! That being said, if they made a direct-to-DVD movie, I’d buy it. In fact, I think TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT should have them.

    Two words: Mini Series.

    Seriously, Paramount needs to pick either DS9 or Vger and do a miniseries and see how well it does. Personally I think DS9 would have more of a shot at it. Broadcast rights plus DVD sales would cover the costs and make a profit. The novelty of bringing back a Trek series as a special would bring a lot of publicity with it.

      I would actually enjoy a cross-time, cross-series movie between Voyager, DS9, and Enterprise — but if I had to choose only 1, it would be DS9 (although good reasons to bring in guest stars from the other series would be most welcome). DS9 deserved to go on longer, and at least deserved a movie of its own. There was a lot of unfinished business with Sisko in the wormhole, and Quark reeling in shock in response to the changes on Ferengenar, just to name only two of the loose ends.

    If a movie does come about, will it be with or without Jeri Ryan. And since she divorced Paul Ryan, I think she needs to go back to her maiden name of Zimmerman.

    “but I think they should go on and develop what
    happens to the characters after Voyager landed — In a movie.” so true!

    Voyager is the WORSE Trek series EVER and better just dissipating into the graveyard of bad jokes… Warp 10 and salamanders, anyone? F*ck you gotta be kidding me…

    And by the way… If you wanna know what happened after Voyager has landed, just go read the novels, Kate. Your captain Janeway is dead I believe.

      Oh boy, yet another Voyager hater! Isn’t there an episode of Star Trek: Phase II or Star Trek: TOS that you can watch and masturbate to?

    I think Kate Mulgrew has a valid point. With more women in positions of authority, tnere would be a balance, and respect for women, and from women to themselves that will show them that they don’t have to be what is determined by others what a woman is, but to be their own uniques version of woman. Too long human society has been afraid of the beauty and wonder that is the miracle of womanhood. They after all share in the miracle of creation, bringing all human life into existance. Women are the gate, the door way, the threshold across which everything we hold dear can be experienced. Women are all beautiful not because of their looks, but because of what it means to be a woman.

    I’d love to see more Voyager . I was born in 1966 and have been a fan of OST since I was 7 . Unfortunately , Paramount is only interested in making “Hollywood” Trek . Like every other movie francise . James Bond example … All action . Little story . Don’t stick to established facts . Bond – beer ? JJ Abrams – Technological Enterprise ?? Change the interior . Yes ! Don’t mess with the exterior !!

    A mini-series would be the best approach for success . But we should also consider the age and appearance of the actors now . Would it play out the same ?

    Thanks HB
