Kate Mulgrew Shares Janeway's Advice for Handling the Coronavirus Pandemic

Star Trek: Voyager star Kate Mulgrew reunited with her former crewmates on the latest Star Trek cruise. Now she's channeling her inner Captain Janeway to offer some advice for handling the coronavirus pandemic. Mulgrew took to twitter to share a message along with a photo of Janeway: "Some advice during a troubling time: Trust science, sense, and compassion to see us through. #keepcalmandcarryon" Using Janeway to spread the message is particularly apt in this situation. Janeway was first and foremost a scientist and Voyager a science vessel. And if any of Star Trek's captains know how to lead a crew through troubling time then it's the one that saw her crew through the years-long journey home from the Delta Quadrant.
