Who is the greatest female science fiction hero(ine)
« on: April 01, 2010, 02:52:41 AM »
I was wondering who people here would consider the greatest female science fiction hero(ine)?

That's for either movies, TV and books (I wont say comics as there are far too many to choose from).

My vote goes towards Ripley from Alien(s).

She still kicks ass and redefined the whole medium from 'screamers' and side-kicks to kick-ass types.

How can Ripley stand up against Ange as Croft in Tombraider?

Get your priorities straight, fellow.

Hello everyone

If you can include aliens, Chanur from CJ Cherryh's book series of the same name.

From TV, all the nice ladies from Farscape.

Is this sexist?? Saying that, all the choices seem orientated towards ladies of the dangerous kind.

In books - Diziet Sma

TV - Lwaxana Troi (not necessarily a big heroine, but a great character.)

Film...can't think of anyone at the moment!
