I loved Kate Mulgrew as Capt. Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager. But since Voyager I haven't seen her in anything else. What gives?

You can catch Kate Mulgrew in Star Trek: Nemesis, where she has a cameo role as Adm. Kathryn Janeway. Mulgrew made television history as the first featured woman captain in the Star Trek franchise. She spent much of last year campaigning for her husband, Tim Hagan, in his losing his race for governor of Ohio. Mulgrew's father, Tom Mulgrew, is a former Iowa Democratic Party chairman. Kate, 48, is an Iowa native who now lives in Cleveland, starring in a one-woman play that opens in March at the Promenade Theater in New York City. The play, Tea at Five, is based on the life of Katharine Hepburn. Mulgrew, who has two sons and a daughter, is best known for her television appearances. Besides her role as a starship captain, she appeared on the soap opera Ryan's Hope and in Kate Columbo.
