Top 5 Violent Hot Space Opera Babes

And now for something completely different.

Sometimes, you just need to watch some women blow things up.

Today I’m going to recommend some violent and also hot space opera babes. Traditionally, these are done as top fives, so that’s what I did.

1. Princess Leia, Star Wars. Like, duh. I think she was the hottest in her bounty hunter costume in Return of the Jedi. Quote: “I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.”

2. Aeryn Sun, Farscape. Not only hot, but tough. Much more a warrior than her eventual paramour, scientist John Crichton. She even gives birth in the middle of a firefight. Quote: “Shooting makes me feel better.”

3. Dayna Mellanby, Blake’s 7. A brilliant creator of weaponry as well as user of same. Also, hot. Quote: “Without danger, there’s no pleasure.”

4. Starbuck, Battlestar Galactica. The female one. Okay, so I haven’t watched the later seasons yet. But in the earlier seasons, she is amazingly hot and also a total rake. I would buy her in any historical romance. Especially hot in her military undershirt. Quote: “Me in a dress is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

5. Ellen Ripley, Aliens. The second movie is the best. Hard, gritty, nonstop, and she makes the hard decisions. Especially hot when shooting evil aliens. Quote: “I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. That’s the only way to be sure.”

    OMG, I thought I was the only one who thought bounty hunter Leia was hotter than slave Leia!

  2. Victoria Janssen says:

    She TOTALLY is. And when she takes off the helmet, I think she's breathtakingly gorgeous, too.
