Every site or blog has to have a list of its prefered women on sci-fi and thingsnerdslike.com is no exception (we don't have a list on the Summer Glau Wiki because the top 10 would have one and only name) :
The Ten Foxiest Women of Sci-Fi, according to thingsnerdslike :
Katee Sackhoff as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on Battlestar Galactica.
Summer Glau as River Tam in Firefly and Serenity.
River is a child prodigy who attended The Academy and is trained in a balletic form of Kung-fu/Kickboxing hybrid fighting style that allows her to defeat 20 or more assailants in combat, only to emerge victorious and unscathed. Summer is classically-trained ballerina and is also active in charity events to support the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Los Angeles, when she isn’t acting on The Cage or lending her voice to video games.
Nichelle Nichols as Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek, the original series
Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity in The Matrix trilogy.
Zoe Saldana as Neytiri in Avatar, and Uhura in the 2009 StarTrek film
Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in Terminator and Terminator 2.
Milla Jovovich as Leeloo in The Fifth Element
Natalie Portman as Padme Amidala in Star Wars, episodes one through three.
Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager
Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham on Fringe
Nothing original except maybe Anna Torv on Fringe.
