Marina Sirtis. Yeoman Janice Rand showing lots of thigh. Those Star Trek uniforms always showed nice legs. Murphy made her Broadway acting debut in in the musical…. Another specimen and what a sexy specimen at that of my theory that the Star Trek Original Series women and women of the 60's were of a sexier class all of their own. Helen Noel, played by Mariann Hill.
Star Trek has cultivated a reputation as the optimistic, intellectual science fiction franchise over its 52 years. Starfleet is ostensibly a military organization, but its main aim is exploration, discovering new life and new civilizations to better understand the universe and the people in it. Forget about the Klingons, the Romulans, even Khan; there is no more terrifying villain in all of Star Trek than the Borg.
So what constitutes a kickass female Star Trek character? For one, she can't be a villain using her badassery for nefarious purposes. The good ones are the female heroes, the strong and powerful women--both loud and quiet, showy and restrained--who really shine. Natasha "Tasha" Yar.
