Yeoman Janice Rand

Star Trek character. Jim Kirk's personal Yeoman. A bit of a dimwit at times.

A secretary type that was fawning and not needed as was clear after her departure

  • Nov 8, 2010

It was fortunate that the character of Janice Rand  was of short duration. It was clear that she was to be Kirk's love interest but the series was so much stronger when the Enterprise became Kirk's true love. Roddenberry admits that he felt the show was stronger after she was gone and I find it impossible to disagree with that. The dynamic Kirk as an unattached woman chaser was a more effective character in the context of the late sixties.

It's one of those cases where a cute actress leaving sucks, but it's better for the show. I liked her but she wasn't important.

I wish she'd stuck around a little longer in the series. Wasted potential for this character!

Short of Chapel, the only female on the Enterprise was Uhura as a major character and the term major is used loosely, the creators must have felt that a little more sex appeal could be needed.  Uhura \was quite the honey especially in season 1 but for a little extra energy, another female was added in as Kirk's own Yeoman, Janice Rand.       Rand is more sad then anything when you really think about it.  Rand was only a supporting character in the first season …

A pretty young thing on board the Enterprise who sadly was canned after a few episodes. Dumb blonde comic relief.
