I’ve read that the sexism continues right up through DS9.

Then of curse with Voyager they had no idea how to write a female captainZ

(Tip: you write a female captain exactly like a male captain. A woman does not consult her ovaries before she launches photon torpedoes)
the prophecy is true

Statistical fact: Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why? They fear this man. They know he sees further than they and he will bind them with ancient logics. —Marty Mikalski

I had not heard about DS9 but I do recall watching Voyager and there were some real WTF moments when it came to Janeway and Seven Of Nine characters which even as a teen made me just roll my eyes or made me uncomfortable as hell in how they framed it and how stupidly it was written and your writing tip is spot on. ^_^

She also helped with the puppet scenes and movement during the filming.

I had no idea about this, that's wonderful. Thank you for linking that!

Re: Picard series, I agree it would be good to see McFadden return as Crusher in some capacity if they could work it out in some way that resonates with what we saw of her possible future in ... All Good Things.

On a similar note, it'd also be good to see Whoopi Goldberg return as Guinan - a great character that they used appropriately in TNG, though was sidelined after Generations. Guinan is perhaps the only other character apart from Crusher that Picard used to consult about personal matters, and if this new series is about Picard coming to terms with a life-changing event, it'd be a waste not to include her. If Paramount could include Goldberg in Nemesis for an uncredited cameo in the Wedding scene, I don't see why they couldn't include her in this story.

Comic-con trailer for the Picard Series.
SPOILER: Show
Wow, both Seven of Nine & Data in this? This series has my attention.

I wonder if it's worth it to get CBS All Access?

I got all access for Discovery and I can’t say I particularly regret it.
