Okay then, let's put it to a vote

I had no idea when I put up my BSG post and mentioned Lucy Lawless that I would get the response I did. People love Xena don't they. But is she the coolest woman in sci-fi? I don't know. I think she's great, but you gotta admit, there's a lot of kick-ass women who show up in our favorite films and tv shows. Plus, there are so many women who paved the way for the Lucy Lawless' of the world. So who rocks them all?
Your title
Who is the coolest woman of sci-fi
Lucy Lawless
Angelina Jolie
Katee Sackoff
Linda Hamilton
Lynda Carter
Sigourney Weaver
Michelle Yeoh
Jennifer Garner
Kate Beckinsdale
Carrie Ann Moss
Other

Lucy Lawless is oustanding and unique in many ways. It ain't that easy to put her name in grammatical plural let alone create a whole category. That just does not make sense.

I'm going with Lynday Carter. She's the original and I think a lot of women have followed in her footsteps.

Lynda Carter? Carter? I don't know, Jon. Are you sure? Me? Angelina. Actually, that's not a fair statement. Based on coolness, probably Kate Sackoff. But for sex, it's Angelina. Who wouldn't want to rip off those lips and eat them?

If you'd ask for the prettiest then I'd have a problem, but I suppose the title would go to Kate Beckinsale...the coolest? Sigourney Weaver, no doubt.

I can't say I was a huge Xena fan. I liked some of the more serious episodes but I just don't care for "supermen/superwomen" types. Had she been a more normal warrior I would have liked it much more. I don't think she can touch such actors as Sigourney, Linda Hamilton, Kate Beckinsale, or Mila ???? though.

I almost named my daughter Ripley--that should tell you who I voted for. Close second was Linda Hamilton. Because in T2 she was amazing.

I'm glad to see some people are going with the old-school picks like Sigourney or Linda Hamilton. They kicked so much butt.

Of the current crop, I like Angelina. Not only is she gorgeous, but she can pull off the bass-ass attitude. Though I suppose you could say that about Lucy and Katee too....

Boy, I'm feeling decisive today aren't I?

Sigourney! You can't beat a space marine! This is a great post.

No doubt that there are a lot of cool women in sci-fi, but they're all a distant second to Lucy Lawless for me!!

I agree there are some fab women in sci fi. But Lucy Lawless is the coolest hands down;) I also love Tricia Helfer

Jean-Luc Picard said...

All these women are awesome. It's a shame to vote for just one.

Crunchy Carpets said...

Hmm tough..if you go by fave characters they have played I would vote differently vs. the actors themselves..

Oldchakram said...

Mr. Gramlich is right, Mila Jovovich is missing in the list - though I voted for Lucy anyway :)

Lucy Lawless all the way! Xena kicked ass, literally and figuratively!
