Dominance In Space: The secret logs of Mistress Janeway

Xena the Warrior Princess and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are action heroines with dominatrix overtones [1]. So is Captain Janeway. One talented fan made that idea come true. Captain Janeway by day. Mistress Janeway by night.

In the 1990s Star Trek dominated the tv screens of sci-fi fans. Star Trek Voyager began her journey in 1995 with Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway, the first female commanding officer in a leading role of a Star Trek series. I watched it whenever I could. Years later I saw the Trekkies documentary. Clearly kinky people are not the only ones who love to dress up. It had a short segment on Captain Janeway as a dominatrix.

It turned out to be the secret logs of Mistress Janeway written by Mistress Nova D. Starship Enterprise is lost in the Delta quadrant. The voyage home will take 75 years. Captain Janeway not only runs a tight ship, she also cracks the whip at her crew. With hindsight I now understand why Voyager was my favourite Star Trek franchise.

The series won numerous Golden Orgasm Awards for the best in Star Trek erotica written between 2001 and 2006. In 2010 the stories were made into a book. You are reading this blog right now so clearly you have some time on your hands. Give it a go.
