26 Hottest TV Babes: Sci-Fi

There really is something about the sight of a sexy woman in a skimpy spacesuit.

Forget the planet-hopping, spaceships and aliens, it’s the sultry space sirens that can really make or break a sci-fi TV series.

So what better way to kill a couple of hours than to scan the internet looking for pictures of them? We love our jobs, really. Any excuse to look at more beautiful women.


26. Jane Badler (Diana)
TV Series: V

Dirty Diana brings back some nice memories. Has there ever been a sexier reptile? Imagine what she could do with that mouth of hers.

25. Erin Gray (Col Wilma Deering)
TV series: Buck Rogers

Our second favourite Wilma in a TV series.

24. Katee Sackoff (Starbuck)
TV series: Battlestar Galactica

The best-looking bloke/woman in the universe. Gets her kit off a lot too.

23. Summer Glau (Cameron Phillips and River Tam)
Notable TV programmes: Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Whether she’s playing an ass-kicking robot or an, errr, ass-kicking teenage prodigy, Summer certainly gets us all hot under the collar.

22. Nichelle Nichols (Uhura)
TV series: Star Trek (Original series)

One of the original space sirens and still one of the best. The dirty minx.

21. Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi)
TV series: Star Trek: The Next Generation

English beauty Sirtis once admitted that her character in Next Generation slept around so much she was called ‘space whore’ by her co-actors. Gets her into our list, that’s for sure.

20. Ali Larter (Niki Sanders)
TV series: Heroes

Sexy as hell and she certainly has a wild side to her.

19. Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully)
TV series: X-Files

OK, we had to put her in. It just would not seem right, otherwise.

18. Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax)
TV Series: Deep Space Nine

Not sure about the weird acne, but we certainly would not kick out of bed.

17. Famke Janssen (Kamala)
TV series: Star Trek: Next Generation

Yes, she really was in Next Generation, and yes, it was just an excuse to put her in.

16. Teri Hatcher (Lois Lane)
TV series: Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

Lois Lane was never this sexy in the films.

15. Kristin Keruk (Lana Lang)
TV series: Smallville

Lois who?

14. Jennifer Garner (Sydney Bristow)
TV series: Alias

There is nothing quite as beautiful as seeing a leather-clad Jennifer Garner kick ass.

13. Jessica Alba (Max Guevara)
TV series: Dark Angel

Apart from maybe Jessica Alba doing the same.

12. Grace Park (Number Eight)
TV series: Battlestar Galactica

Sex on toast-er. Get it?

11. Christina Hendricks (Saffron)
TV series: Firefly

She’s probably better known for her role in the new hot show Mad Men, but she certainly made an impression as a seductress on Firefly.

10. Morena Baccarin (Inara Serra)
TV series: Firefly

Stars as a prostitute in Firefly. Worth every penny.

9. Xev Bellringer (Xenia Seeburg)
TV series: Lexx

This shower scene alone gets her on this list.

8. Eliza Dushku (Faith)
TV Series: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Is Buffy really sci-fi? Who cares? It’s just another excuse to get pictures of Faith and Buffy in.

7. Sarah-Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers)
TV series: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

See above.

6. Tricia Helfer (Number Six)
TV series: Battlestar Galactica

Six?!! We’d give her a 10. Or should that be one?

5. Evangeline Lilly (Kate Austen)
TV series: Lost

She is the only reason we are still watching Lost.

4. Lena Headey (Sarah Connor)
TV series: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

English rose who has blossomed in The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

3. T’Pol (Jolene Blalock)
TV series: Enterprise

Star Trek hottie who is never afraid to get her kit off.

2. Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine)
TV series: Star Trek Voyager

Bit of a dull personality, but who cares?

1. Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennett)
TV series: Heroes

We’d like to get in her Panettieres. OK, bad joke, we know.

    I may be one of the only men who prefers Nicole de Boer’s Ezri Dax to Terry Farrell’s Jadzia. Ah, well.

  2. Ali says

    Oh great, a 28 – year old chubby cheerleader is number 1. Claudia Black didn’t even make the list.

  3. Fletch says

    Agree with 2 other comments there. Claudia Black and Gigi Edgley from Farscape should have made the list

    And what about Amanda Tapping (Samantha Carter) in Stargate SG1

    Or maybe I’m just mad

  4. says

    Why not a better pic of Gillian Anderson? Why no Kaylee from Firefly?

    And those above are right about that Farscape Claudia Black lass. She should be in here…

    Christina Hendricks is a fine choice, though!

  5. Shooty* says

    “Katee Sackoff”

    I’m sure there are better transexuals you could have found.

    And, FFS, Marina Sirtis? How 80s.

    I second (again) Claudia Black and Gigi Edgley. Not so sure about Amanda Tapping, thought: clearly, MacGyver’s got first dibs there.

    I actually quite fancy Michael Shanks, but that’s just me.

  6. says

    Nah, Shooty*. I doubt merely admitting a Shanksways leaning will do for this one.

    Jane Fonda in Barbarella and Maren Jensen as Athena in Battlestar Galactica TOS.

  7. says

    Okay, maybe Lalla Ward, but only if she’s got Edward James Olmos’ voice, and is prepared to double up with Leela (Louise Jameson) and Sapphire (Joanna Lumley) from Sapphire and Steel. Hey, this is fun! I’m discovering that I like ’em aloof, mad, or tough enough to hand me my arse in a fight.

  8. rony says

    Jennifer Garner? ALIAS was not a Sci-Fi show. How about Elizabeth Gracen from Highlander, or Claudia Christian from Babylon 5, and How about the girls from the original Battlestar Galactica, Laurette Spang and Maren Jensen. And how about Lucy Lawless from Xena. They should have also included from the Star Trek franchise, Roxann Dawson from Voyager, and Linda Park from Enterprise. And how about Lindsay Wagner, the Bionic Woman. Or how about the girls from Charmed. How about Salli Richardson from Eureka. And Jayne Heitmeyer from Earth: Final Conflict. And Katherine Heigl when she was on Roswell and her co-star, Shirl Appelby. And if you had Sarah Michelle Geller and Eliza Dushku from Buffy, how about Charisma Carpenter and Emma Caulfield. And like Jennifer Garner from ALIAS, I’m not sure if Lost falls into the Category of Sci Fi, but if you have Evangeline Lilly, how about Maggie Grace and Yunjin Kim. And how about Lexa Doig from Andromeda. And let’s not forget Linda Carter, Wonder Woman.

  9. Guy says

    Are you shitting me? You pick a little “girl” over the likes of Ryan. Now I realize you’re nothing but a kid – and I thought this ranking was being done by an adult who has lived for a while. What a waste of time this was.

  10. kev says

    They all have these big square american heads , european woman are much hotter. Except for one from Lost & one from Heroes.
    And there’s like 6 mingers in there, I mean what the hell is wrong with you!?
