I liked Vash’s sassiness and her irreverence. I liked her sense of fearlessness, and the fact that she really didn’t give Picard the time of day in terms of his rank. Vash saw herself as an equal. She did whatever she felt she had to do, but she wasn’t insincere about her feelings, either. She’s not a total manipulator or user. She really felt something for Picard. At the same time, she didn’t have to be completely honest with him.Jennifer Hetrick in “Captain’s Lady”, Starlog Magazine, November 1995.
