One of the things that I love about sci-fi is the strong women. Sci-Fi girls have come a long way from the blue-skinned babes of early Star Trek. Here are three of my favorite sci-fi heroines that have what every sci-fi girl needs.
Ripley is one brave woman. In Aliens she heads into the monsters’ lair after a single lesson in handling the BFG (big freaking gun) from handsome Corporal Hicks. She goes in alone because by that time all the big tough soldiers have already been taken out of the picture by the slippery, acid-blooded aliens.
Samantha Carter of Star Gate is both a brilliant scientist and a skilled soldier. She routinely saves the day for the boys of SG1 and has left behind a string of bruised hearts to rival James T. Kirk.
An Independent Streak
Leia may have been a princess, but she was also a rebel. Any girl who could rock that hairstyle definitely knows how to blaze her own trail.
Who are your favorite sci-fi heroines? If you could be any sci-fi heroine, who would you be?
