Sexy Aliens?


Three.



Two.


Entertainment Weekly recently released the 17 Sexiest Aliens of all time. The list begins with the three female cylons from Galactica (...are there only three female cylons? There are, right? Or ... do we really know?!?!) - from left to right, top pic: Caprica Six (Tricia Helfer), D'anna Biers (Lucy Lawless), and "Boomer" (Grace Park).

I would have limited that list cylons to only one: Caprica Six, and not just because or her penchant for slinky outfits. This cylon has more self-confidence and 'tude than Ramses II.

Won.

"Boomer" is really cute but way too skinny and boyish, and D'anna Biers isn't so much "hot" as "established businesswoman I'd never want to cross." She's businesslike, angry, and keeps her distance - and she can afford a daily blowout at Tricoci for $75 bucks a pop.


I've listed the rest of the winners from the EW Website in no particular order:

Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) from Star Trek: Voyager


Barbarella (Jane Fonda)


Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back


Starman (Jeff Bridges)


SIL (Natasha Henstridge) from Species


Princess Aura (Ornella Muti) from Flash Gordon


Superman/Kal El (Christoper Reeve)


The Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) from Doctor Who


LEELOO (Milla Jovovich) from The Fifth Element


WORF (Michael Dorn) from Star Trek: Next Generation


Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) from MIB II


Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell) from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine


The Brother (Joe Morton) from The Brother From Another Planet


Diana (Jane Badler) from V


If it were up to me, I'd take "Boomer," D'anna Biers, Barbarella, Princess Aura (see reason below), Worf, "The Brother," Jeff Bridges, and Diana off the list and replace a few of them with these:


HELLOOOO!!! How could you POSSIBLY forget Han Solo???


And who could pull off a pair of cinnamon buns strapped to the side of her head like Princess Leia?


Side Note: Don't tell me Princess Aura didn't raid Leia's wardrobe for that crappy Flash Gordon film. The only thing good about F. Gordon was Queen's catchy theme song.


Then there's Ursa (Sarah Douglas) and General Zod (Terrence Stamp) from Superman II
(Stamp was even rated #59 in Empire Magazine's "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" in 1995.)



The sexiest aliens of all, in my opinion, will always be Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter and Patricia Quinn as Magenta.

Do I really even have to name the movie?




It would be a LOT easier to name 25 sexy sci fi stars. Limiting the list to aliens exclusively is really difficult!

I am going to pretend that there were no entries from Flash Gordon. That would presume the movie actually had "aliens."

In the small world of Sci-Fi, Terry Farrell was a nurse in the Quantum Leap episode, "A Leap for Lisa." Neat-o!
