My father once told me that Cap'n Archer was supposed to be a girl, named Beverly. It has been a few years, and I cannot ask him anymore, so I figured that I would ask you fine folk.

Is Captain Archer of the USS Enterprise supposed to be a girl, but Janeway made them change it to a man? Or is my daddy mistaken?

I didn't find anything of the sort on Memory Alpha. So he was probably mistaken.

Several things impress me about this post. First, that anyone would consider putting a "girl" in command of a starship. She'd have to be even more precocious than Wesley Crusher. Second, I'm amazed that Captain Janeway, a fictional character, could have convinced or forced the writers to change their minds.
