I enjoyed Zoe Saldana in Star Trek. She really updated the role and gave it a lot of charm, without going completely over the top. There were almost no women in the movie (except for Spock's mother, Kirk's mother, and the green girl) so Zoe gave the movie some sexiness.

Ironically, that's what I don't like about the roles many women have in Sci-Fi: set dressing, fan service, ...sexiness.

I think Sigourney Weaver's character in Galaxy Quest is a great parody of how women are viewed in Sci-Fi.

Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine in Star Trek: Voyager was incredibly attractive.
I think that last post just got you in Tedda's notebook. You don't want to be in Tedda's notebook.

It was the voice and intonation she used.

Nareed & RXWine,

You're both right. You guys forgot her eyes, hips, lips, hair and posterior, though, in that order. Voice would come after hips and breasts would cime after voice.

What is so classic about that role is that Sigourney Weaver was responsible for changing that image of woman in sci-fi by her role in Alien. She was gritty, self determined, and she approached men for sex. It wasn't that coquettish seduction either, it was a woman who was simply looking for a little physical release.

Given her acting history, it made her role in Galaxy Quest all the funnier. When someone got annoyed at her repeating the Captain's orders her character had one of the greatest lines: Look, I have ONE job on this lousy ship. It's STUPID, but I'm gonna do it, OKAY?
