Favourite Female Characters in Sci-fi

I made this collage a little while ago. These are my favourite female characters in sci-fi. Not bound by either historical convention or real world prejudice, I think sci-fi has the potential to lead the way in representation of women. It doesn’t always, but occasionally it hits the mark. I thought I’d post it, as it’s International Women’s Day.


All the photos/pictures belong to the respective creators (see below for details of characters).

From left to right: Ripley (Aliens), Aeryn Sun (Farscape), Halo Jones (Halo Jones comic), Zoe (Firefly), Judge Hershey (Judge Dredd, 2000AD), Vasquez (Aliens), Starbuck (BSG), Lornette (Strange Days).
