UGO.com has released a list of TV's Sexiest Ass-Kicking Women of All Time; i give you the first 5 out of 25 :
5. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
The Girl in Question: River Tam of Firefly, Cameron Phillips of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Why We Love Her: River Tam never kicked any ass on the small screen, buf if you've ever seen Serenity you know that any producer will put Summer Glau's dance background to good use. Whether a psychic living weapon, a cyborg, or genius computer hacker as in upcoming superhero drama The Cape, there's no one we'd love more to kick our teeth in.

12 - Kick-ass TV Heroines
1. Homeland: Carrie Mathison
Played by: Claire Danes
Carrie Mathison literally kills it on the series of Homeland. She's tough, brave and bolshy - but what really stands her out from the rest is her perceived flaws. From a reliance on anti-psychotic drugs to a penchant for ill-advised affairs, Carrie comes complicated and it's these personal problems that eventually threaten to overwhelm her red hot instincts, making her possibly the most compelling TV viewing.
2. Dexter: Lt. Debra Morgan
Played by: Jennifer Carpenter
Foul-mouthed Debs is one of Miami Metro's finest, and though her brother's dark passenger has so far evaded her, she can sniff out pretty much any other of the many murderous psychos that haunt this series from a mile off. Put it this way, whether killer or cop, NO-ONE messes with Lt. Morgan.
3. Game of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen
Played by: Emilia Clarke
In the first episodes of the mighty Game of Thrones. Daenerys Targaryen seems like a passive character who is led by her domineering brother Viserys, but after her marriage to Khal Drogo she grows in confidence until she becomes a true warrior queen, gamely eating raw horse hearts and riding by the side of her warrior husband as she seeks to reclaim the throne that is her birthright.
4. Alias: Sydney Bristow
Played by: Jennifer Garner
When it comes to super-brilliant spies, CIA agent Sydney Bristow is your full package. A pro at both languages and Krav Maga, she can kick butt intellectually and on a physical level. In a world full of double agents and terrorists, Sydney shines through, at once sexy. Likeable and incredibly strong.
5. The Killing: Sarah Lund
Played by: Sofie Grabol
Don't mess with Sarah Lund - or her dizzying array of dubious sweaters that star in this Danish thriller hit. The crimes Sarah has to face are far from pretty, but her dogged, unflappable approach means she's more than up for the challenge. What with her dodgy wardrobe and her somewhat dry and dour outlook. Sarah challenges conventional concepts of the female heroine and is all the more brilliant for it.
6. Battlestar Galactica: Captain Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace
Played by: Katee Sackhoff
Starbuck is the best pilot in the galaxy by far and a little bit arrogant with it - which is why we love her. A complex, hot-headed character, she has a tough exterior but is dealing with her own issues in the best way she can, namely sex, gambling, drinking and smoking cigars. The role of Starbuck was played by Dirk Benedict in the 1978 Battlestar Galactica, but critics have have lauded Katee Sackhoff's take on the character for giving her a depth and grittiness that was missing from the original.
7. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Sarah Connor
Played by: Lena Headey
Lena Headey took on the role made famous by Linda Hamilton in the Terminator films, and made it her own in the spin-off TV series. In Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, we find Lena's character Sarah struggling to protect her son. John Connor from sophisticated cyborgs who have been sent back from the future to kill him. She is a fighting machine, trained in armed combat and always alert to danger. Watching her effortlessly doing pull-ups on a bar is a reminder that we should probably go back to the gym some time.
8. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Cameron
Played by: Summer Glau
Sarah Connor is ably assisted in her mission to protect John from the machines by one of them - Cameron, who like Arnie in the Terminator films is a cyborg that has been reprogrammed to protect humans. Cameron might look like an average teenage girl, but she is a killing machine who will happily destroy anything that threatens to harm John Connor.
9. Dollhouse: Echo
Played by: Eliza Dushku
Unlike the other 'dolls' in Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku's character Echo remembers all the personalities that have been downloaded into her mind, meaning that she's assassin, seductress and physician all rolled into one.
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Played by: Sarah Michelle Gellar
Got a vampire, demon or some other dark force? Then Buffy is your girl. The cool kid of 90s TV epitomises what it is to be a heroine, ever-ready to tackle the latest threat with her superhuman powers. The metaphors for teen issues played out in the programme just made it that extra bit more genius.
11. Wonder Woman/ Diana Prince
Played by: Lynda Carter
There is no better person to epitomise the D.C. Comics heroine than Lynda Carter. She stormed onto our screens in the 1970s and secured a place in our hearts ever since. Superpowers aside, what's not to love about this cracking gold-embossed costume?
12. Charlie's Angels
Played by: Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith
They were the original and ultimate kick-ass heroines, Charlie's three super-sultry female spies went undercover as cocktail waitresses, models and even strippers - and all in pursuit of first class baddies. Though their moves were inspired, it is perhaps their legendary 70s hairstyles that will go down in TV history.
