Ryan & Nichols Make Sexiest Women Of TV List December 7, 2007by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: TOS,Trek Franchise,VOY , trackback
Another List! AOL have issued a list of ‘TV’s 50 Sexiest Women Ever’ and like any good list, Star Trek makes an appearance.
Two Star Trek stars were featured on the list. Voyager’s own Borg, Jeri Ryan came in at number 28 and the original sexy Trekker Nichelle Nichols edged her out – coming in at 27th.
Here are the blurbs for Ryan and Nichols
28. Jeri Ryan
Show: ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ (1997-2001)
Heat Index: Look at that picture. Need we say more? Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine sporting a skin-tight catsuit left jaws gaping when she first set foot on the Voyager. If all Borg looked like her, people would be begging to be assimilated.
27. Nichelle Nichols
Show: ‘Star Trek’ (1973-1974) [yes AOL used the TAS years]
Heat Index: The original ‘Star Trek’ babe, Nichelle Nichols showed off her endless legs in a super-short Enterprise uniform. The skimpy attire didn’t escape the notice of Capt. Kirk who shared TV’s first interracial kiss with the sensual Lt. Uhura. Lucky him!
Trek guests make the cut
A number of actresses who guest starred for Trek are also on the list. Kim Cattrall, who played Lieutenant Valeris in Star Trek VI, ranked 39th for her role on Sex in the City. Julie Newmar, who played Eleen in the TOS episode “Friday’s Child” came in at 20th for her role as Catwoman on the 60s camp classic Batman. At #49 is Teri Hatcher (Lt. Robinson – TNG “The Outrageous Okona”) for her work on Lois & Clark. And finally Nikki Cox (Sarjenka TNG “Pen Pals”) ranked 35th for her role on Las Vegas.
Is it pon farr yet?
More Sci-Fi & Abrams Babes
Many other Sci-Fi Syrens made the list including Tricia Helfer (31) and Grace Park (46) from Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica. Lucy Lawless ranked 37th for her work on BSG and as the star of Xena: Warrior Princes (a show which sported the work of Star Trek scribes Kurtzman and Orci ). Two female leads from shows created by Star Trek director JJ Abrams made the list as well. Jennifer Garner (Alias) ranked 41st and Evangeline Lilly (Lost) came in at 23rd. For you Buffy fans both Sarah Michelle Gellar (50) and Charisma Carpenter (22) made the cut. The only co-star from Zachary Quinto’s Heroes on the list is Ali Larter at 42nd. William Shatner’s co-star on TJ Hooker, Heather Locklear was number 4. And AOL’s sexiest TV lady of all time?….Pamela Anderson. If you ask me, Linda Carter (who came in third) should demand a recount.
