    Beschreibung "When we first saw the call for papers put out by Outskirts feminisms along the edge, we began to think about the myriad of edges women travel along. Of the many images that drifted through our minds, the one that lingered was that of Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). Captain Janeway will be known to those familiar with the television series, Star Trek: Voyager, which first screened in Perth on 16 April, 1996. Our attention was captured by this science fiction character for two reasons; here was a woman, at the helm of her own ship, on the edge of space, in the centre of popular culture. Equally interesting, is the trajectory plotted by Janeway and her crew. Unlike the starship Enterprise (including those depicted in the original series and The Next Generation) which journeys outwards from the centre of the known universe, the Voyager is travelling in from the edge. Its destination: home. In order to facilitate a fluid discussion, we have divided our analysis into two sections. The first entitled 'Women in the Trek through Popular Culture', looks at the changing roles assigned to women in this popular series which has screened for over thirty years. In the second section, we wish to consider the ways in which both geographical and narrative space have been engendered and how women might be expected to navigate this space. Specifically, in relation to the first episode of the Star Trek: Voyager series, we wish to interrogate how the infinity of geographical space, as proposed by some theorists, might be mapped into thirty years of narrative space."
