Vote in the ranking: Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroine

Please vote in my Rankopedia ranking - I want votes from experts (flattery has to work...)

Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroine

You have to register in order to vote, but it's free and simple.

The list of candidates is limited to 80, so don't blame me too much if I left out some of your favorites. You can always add new candidates as a member... or ask me to add them.

Kathryn Janeway, Ellen Ripley and Catwoman. The first two are pretty obvious but Michelle Pfeiffer makes the list because I'm an incredibly shallow person.

Re: Vote in the ranking: Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroi

Heeeey...they got the top three right! How often does that happen on teh internets? Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, and everyone's favorite sithspawn space-bitch princess, exactly as I woulda ranked them.

I'd put Dana Scully #4, and Laura Roslin should be higher in the list. but overall, it looks like the voting is proceeding intelligently with no assistance needed from me.

You need to add Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, Sun Kwon and Juliet Burke.

Starbuck is already there. She is currently at #30.

I thought about adding Sun and Juliet, but then I thought if I go down that road I'd have to add Kate, too... and I already have 80 candidates, which is the limit. Any Rankopedia member can add candidates, but since there are already 80, that means that one of those who haven't had any votes yet will be deleted.

Kate Austen should be on the list, though, along with Juliet and Sun, as well as Cordelia Chase.

Emma Peel wasn't on the list, but I voted for her anyway.


Fun poll, though, although I'm not sure Pris counts as a "heroine."

She almost was, but then I couldn't decide if I should include Spy-Fy, like The Avengers, La Femme Nikita, Alias...

The trouble with Rankopedia is that there can only be 80 candidates, and adding anyone new means deleting some of those with no votes. Survival of the fittest!

Well, isn't she? She is one of the rebelling slaves, that sounds like a heroine to me.

I only tried to leave out outright villains. Ambiguous characters are welcome...

Cordelia Chase has been added (and has gotten some votes), and so has Emma Peel, so you can now actually vote for them. I also added Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell and Lyra Silvertongue at Gaith's request, but if she doesn't get any votes I might delete them soon, too.

I will probably add the women from Lost, but that means deleting a few more candidates without votes.

Re: Vote in the ranking: Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroi



I know it may not seem like it; but technically speaking: Sydney Bristow from Alias is a science fiction / fantasy heroine.

Wikipedia has the following entry in regards to Alias...

"A major plotline of the series was the search for and recovery of artifacts created by Milo Rambaldi, a Renaissance-era character with similarities to both Leonardo da Vinci and Nostradamus. This plot and some technologies used in the series pushed Alias into the genre of science fiction."

So... would it be okay (i.e. cool) if I added her to the list?
Or is she more spy than sci-fi?

Re: Vote in the ranking: Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroi

^ I was wondering the same about Spy-Fy shows like Alias and La Femme Nikita, which also featured some SciFi plots and technologies, as far as I remember (and I would vote for Nikita if I included her), but I couldn't decide, especially with the field already being overcrowded as it is, with the 80 candidates limit. It's the same reason I almost included Emma Peel at the start, then changed my mind, before including her at Greg Cox's request...

I abstain due to a noticeable lack of Ms. Marvel.

Re: Vote in the ranking: Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy screen heroi

^^^
It's the greatest science fiction and fantasy screen heroines, though, and I don't think Ms. Marvel's appearances in The Super Hero Squad Show qualify her. Now, when she makes her movie debut, as I'm sure she will eventually, that'll be another story.

I think Sydney Bristow should definitely be on the list. Alias easily had enough sci-fi elements to qualify her.

Another major heroine who should be there is Lois Lane, who has had a number of memorable screen portrayals.
