A listing, in no particular order, of some of my other favorite fictional women in (or from) space:
- Zoe - Firefly
- The Android - Dark Matter
- President Laura Roslin - Battlestar Galactica
- Supergirl - Supergirl
- Vice Admiral Janeway - Star Trek
- Dr. Ellie Arroway - Contact (or, as I call it: The Gaslighting of Ellie Arroway)
- Tali'Zorah - Mass Effect
- Number Eight / Sharon Valerii / Sharon Agathon - Battlestar Galactica
- Dr. Ryan Stone - Gravity (or, as I call it: Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck)
- Lt. Ellen Ripley - Alien series
- Rey - Star Wars: The Force Awakens
As I was thinking about this list, it still strikes me how few female characters there are in this genre, compared to male characters. And, most are white and straight.
*Pairing: None. Sometimes, I like to take a step back and just appreciate bad-assery all by itself.
