Gretchen Janeway (née Williams) was a Human female who lived on Earth during the 24th century. She was the wife of Edward Janeway, and the mother of Kathryn and Phoebe. She was still alive as of 2377. (VOY novel: Mosaic; VOY episode: "Author, Author"; ST reference: The Autobiography of Kathryn Janeway)


Gretchen's father was a Starfleet officer. Her mother was called Elsa. Gretchen, born in late 2309, had a sister Annie and an aunt named Katie. Gretchen's father was killed in an accident when she was six and a half years old, in 2316. (VOY - Strange New Worlds IV short story: "Uninvited Admirals")

In Winter of 2329, her stepfather, Kurt, was promoted to the rank of Admiral. At the promotion party, Kurt introduced Gretchen to Lieutenant Edward Janeway, as well as to Lieutenant William Patterson. Edward and Gretchen married soon afterwards.

Gretchen was a traditionalist when it came to cooking. She raised Kathryn to use a toaster to get the right texture needed for a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Isabo's Shirt")

In 2358, two months before their thirtieth wedding anniversary, Edward was killed and Gretchen was told this news by Patterson and a woman called Sarah Brennan. (VOY - Strange New Worlds IV short story: "Uninvited Admirals"; VOY novel: Mosaic; VOY episode: "Coda")

Six weeks after USS Voyager vanished (circa. stardate 48660.0), Patterson told Gretchen that news, though this time he was accompanied by Owen Paris. (VOY - Strange New Worlds IV short story: "Uninvited Admirals")
