We asked and you’ve voted. With 31% of the votes, you selected “Rommie” from Andromeda to be the pilot of our “Spaceship dream team!”
This is one of the more interesting and surprising choices. Andromeda was a moderately successful science-fiction show from the mid-2000s about a crew fighting to unite the galaxy in a warship. It featured an intelligent computer with a robot avatar they called “Rommie.”
Essentially, we’ve chosen the computer to be the pilot of our ship. She is very loyal to her crew and protects those in her care. As a warship computer she is always ready to fight and will work hard to keep the crew and the ship safe. Under the command of Captain Solo and First Officer Spock, she’ll provide a good balance for their opposing viewpoints and styles.
She’s also our first female crew member. “Rommie” is an excellent choice.
I thought for sure “Wash” from Firefly would win, and it was a close call.
Poor Wesley Crusher got zero votes. He really is the Jar-Jar Binks of the Star Trek universe.
Next up we’ll select our ship’s engineer (mechanic). Vote now in the side bar!
How do you feel about our new pilot?
