So I'm watching an old episode of Voyager. The one where seven returns to the Borg. And Naomi Wildman goes to see the captain with a plan to find and rescue seven.
She's kinda like Westley, growing up on a starship but she's better than Westley. Voyager is far from home and resupply so the engineers and scientists aboard need to be smart with with they have.
And it struck me, she's going to be one of the best Starfleet officers ever.
Her skill and intelligence comes from experience and creativity, where Westley's came from being a prodigy.
She idolizes seven of nine, she's going to be smart like her, she idolizes Captain Janeway because why not.
In Star trek timelines she's an engineer and diplomat (from that one episode in the future where Janeway and Chakotay meet future Naomi and Icheb)
It makes sense, she was born and raised in the Delta quadrant on Voyager.
Maybe she isn't the captain, but you would be hard pressed to find a better first officer.
