Star Trek: Discovery Pays Tribute to Voyager’s Captain Janeway

December 21, 2021

Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Episode 5 revealed that it has paid tribute to the iconic Star Trek: Voyager character, Captain Kathryn Janeway. The episode, titled “The Examples,” follows three ships embarking on a journey to investigate the Dark Matter Anomaly (DMA) that destroyed Kwejian. One of the ships identifies itself as USS Janeway, quite possibly named after the famed captain of USS Voyager, accompanied by another vessel from the United Federation of Planets. “It is only logical” that an exploratory vessel meant for the scientific investigative expedition will be named after one of the best scientists of the yesteryears. The third ship identifies itself as NSS T’Pau, from Ni’var (the united world of Vulcans and Romulans).
