Honestly, really are you kidding? I would not trust her to hold my puppy never mind give her any sort of power and control. This is the woman who clawed her way to the top of the empire, do you really think that she is doing this simply for some sort of freedom? She doesn't want freedom, she wants power. She is incapable of change, her reactions to Saru and Sarek show her hatreds and animosity have not dwindled. I would think they would only have strengthened along with her aggression in light of her altered circumstances. She wanted her blaze of glory exit and she has been denied, she is unlikely to forgive Burnham or the Federation for that.
I had missed some of the bonus content and am finally getting to your coverage of S1 ep1 Caretaker. I've really enjoyed it. I have seen the first 3 or 4 seasons back when they originally aired but haven't seen any since then. I can't say that Voyager stuck with me, it's my least favorite Trek. So my question for anyone is: What are the 5-10 best episodes of Voyager?
