Ryan & Nichols Make Sexiest Women Of TV List December 7, 2007

by 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.

Thanks for Kennelly and dreamer28 for spotting more Trek guest stars


1. Adam from Australia - December 7, 2007

1st. Zoe’s got big shoes to fill….

2. KevinA Melbourne Australia - December 7, 2007

Go 7 of 9!

3. KevinA Melbourne Australia - December 7, 2007

Hey does that make a Ausie double 1 & 2 (?3)

4. KevinA Melbourne Australia - December 7, 2007

Sorry “Aussie” double

5. Adam from Australia - December 7, 2007

Also, interesting article Anthony, but perhaps all of the wierd trek connections are possibly over-doing it!

6. Scott Xavier - December 7, 2007

How about T’pol that chick is gorgeous! She can pan far and mind meld with me any time!

7. Iowagirl - December 7, 2007

“Gentlemen, step into my parlor.”

Go, Uhura!

8. Lloyd - December 7, 2007

Lynda Carter came in third, Farrah Fawcett came in second.

9. Kennelly - December 7, 2007

Julie Newmar is 20th and she appeared in TOS:Friday’s Child

10. Levois - December 7, 2007

Marina Sirtis was sexy she should have been in there. And Jolene Blalock as well!

11. DJT - December 7, 2007

Dude, where’s Barbara Luna on that list?

Or Empress Sato?

or Ensign Desperate Housewife?

12. kuid hawk - December 7, 2007

Xavier not to down you but it is spelt PON FARR

13. Captain Quirk Trek Modeler - December 7, 2007

Ah yes, the lovelies of Trek. Some of the most beautiful women on the planet showed up on TOS. Jeri Ryan is a magnificent beauty as well as a damned fine actress. I remember when I first saw her on Voy, in that silver cat suit. Wow! What a babe! That whole dominatrix thing had me from day one. The most recent shots of her in FHM were stunning! It’s nice to see the ladies of Trek appreciated by the mainstream. What I wouldn’t do to share an evening with those two, when they were both in their prime. GRRRRRRR Baby Yeah!

Even today Nicholes is a beautiful woman. Trek on Trek Babes!

14. Diabolik - December 7, 2007

Nichelle is #1 on my own personal list. I’ve been in love with her since I was a teen.

15. SPB - December 7, 2007

*sigh* PAM ANDERSON????

Fine, put her on the list somewhere… I get why teenage boys think she’s so great, but #1??? Maybe BEFORE she got those ridiculous implants and the scary plastic surgery, but come on. Who in their right mind would have anything to do with this woman, aside from mouth-breathers who automatically start drooling at the sight of fake breasts?

Give me Lynda Carter and Nichelle Nichols any day. At least if either one of them had any plastic surgery, it’s incredibly subtle and barely noticable, unlike that walking Barbie abomination at #1. Bleeeech.

16. j - December 7, 2007

Mirror Uhura was almost hot enough to turn me straight.

17. Cervantes - December 7, 2007

Star Trek was often a sexy-looking show. I hope this Movie reflects that in it’s crew. Bring back those ‘mini-tunics’ J.J. ;)

18. bdrcarter - December 7, 2007

Pam Anderson?! Who pulled the poll together? Gnarly, has-been rock stars? The American Medical Association of Plastic Surgeons? Doc Johnson’s Inflatable Love Dolls Fan Club? (Which are actually more life-like than Pam Anderson.)

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Bring on Lynda Carter!!

19. SPB - December 7, 2007


This always bugs me when someone mentions the “Plato’s Stepchildren” episode… because THEIR LIPS NEVER TOUCH!!! How come no one EVER seems to bring up this important point???

Kirk leans in to Uhura until their lips are about a 1/2 inch apart, and then he spins her towards the camera, and you can still see that Kirk is GRIMACING and NOT kissing. I can understand why non-TREK writers and websites would make this mistake (hey, they read it on Wikipedia!), but I RARELY hear anything from other Trekkies on this point.

How can it be the “first” interracial kiss… when they DON’T KISS?

20. JeFF - December 7, 2007

Yeah, this is totally sweet.

I agree, some of the most stunning women EVER appear in Trek, especially TOS. Barbara Luna… good lord, are you kidding me? Like taking a Victoria Secret model, inserting a brain, and putting her in a cut-off Starfleet Uniform. Can we say HOTTT?! She is one of my all-time favorites, and Barbara Luna herself is such a sweet lady.

Certainly Nichelle Nichols should be honored… such beauty that was matched by such elegance, class and grace. You go Nichelle!

I’m surprised that Jolene isn’t on this list… she is breathtaking, and such a fun girl.

Ya know who was super hot? Jaclyn Smith… damn!

21. Michael Foote - December 7, 2007

kuid hawk not to down you but it is spelled “spelled” not spelt.

22. Dennis Bailey - December 7, 2007

Blalock, Ryan, Alley and Cattrall – in no particular order – are the women I’ve found most attractive in “Star Trek.”

23. Ves - December 7, 2007

Not putting Shatner in this is just a bad business decision!

24. CmdrR - December 7, 2007

See, there’s nothing wrong with sexxxy AND smart.
If XI has to have women spouting technobabble, they’d better be wearing mini’s and go-go boots!

Uhura can hail me anytime, while 7 puts the ass in assimilation.

Yes, I am a piggy and proud of it.

25. Phil Smith - December 7, 2007

Pam Anderson? Are you kidding? She’s as nasty as they come. Just nasty.

26. Alex - December 7, 2007

Kim Catrall? Am I the only one who thinks she’s ugly as hell? Why is she on that list?

27. OneBuckFilms - December 7, 2007

Janice Rand anyone?

28. Warlock - December 7, 2007

What about Roxanne Dawson? I mean really how many of you guys out there would protest even the slightest (besides you #16 J) if that little Klingon-Human Hybrid slammed you against a bulkhead and took what she wanted. Okay show of hands. Hmmm that’s what I thought.

29. I AM THX-1138 - December 7, 2007

You are correct. Shatner is one hot chick.

30. Noleuser - December 7, 2007

How about T’Pol?! Jolene Blalock is the hottest girl in Star Trek….or anything!

31. Dr. Image - December 7, 2007

Nana Visitor!!! (If you’ve ever seen her up close & personal, you’d know.)
Same goes for Linda Park.
Kim Catrall. Drag queen.
Marina? Even now she’s hot as HELL. Lost weight too!

32. Ron Paul in 08 - December 7, 2007

Pamela Anderson? Yeah, nothing hotter than Hepatitis and ever-changing breast sizes. Jeri Ryan as 7 of 9 or 36 of DD or whatever the hell they called her breasts never impressed me. Lynda carter was beautiful and sexy, sooo alluring! She will always be my #1

33. Commodore Redshirt - December 7, 2007

…to all who ask why Pam Anderson was 1st, I have 3 words:
“Internet Sex Video”

Oh, and the slow mo beach running…

…and would all you guys who said “yuck” turn down a night with her?
I thought so…

And most important of all keep in mind the source… AOL!

34. SPB - December 7, 2007

#33 Commodore Redshirt –

1) There was nothing alluring about that video.

2) You mean that slow-mo beach running on that God-awful TV show?

3) I’d sooner go with America Ferrera in her full-blown “Ugly Betty” make-up before even getting within 10 yards of Pam Anderson. Yes, when she first hit the scene, I thought she was fairly hot just like every other guy, but that almost, what, 20 years ago? She’s since had at least 2 kids, contracted Hepatitis-C and has been with every other rock star under the sun… and we all know how easy it is for THEM to keep it in their pants.

TWO WORDS FOR YOU: Damaged goods.

35. YUBinit - December 7, 2007

Regarding Pam Anderson I guess the poll allowed manufactured woman. I would expect any tampering to void their warranty and immediately disqualify.

36. YUBinit - December 7, 2007

Well if #1 is Pam just think of how many have a Borat mentality to make that election? That is just too scary to ponder. LOL

37. Batts - December 7, 2007

Nichelle Nichols was a very breath-taking woman, obviously she was into her body and so was Roddenberry! Look at t hat washboard abs she has in MIrror Mirror! T’Pol can definitley mind meld with me and quite probably experience some sort of emotion…!
Linda Carter is just hypnotic!! 7 of 9 is a 10 of 10! Pure Dime!! She would have volunteers to get assimilated.. Resistance is Futile!!!
Pam Anderson..C’mon now!! Let’s get REAL!! emphasis on REAL!!

38. Derek Evans - December 7, 2007

All I can say is:……Where is Miss Barbara Luna!!.. Mama Mia!!..I met her at the Minneapolis ST Con…she’s Still HOT…I demand a recount!!

39. AJ - December 7, 2007

#16: I cannot stop laughing. I do prefer the “fairer” sex, but Nichelle Nichols was actually quite alluring as she tried to keep “Mirror Sulu” occupied.

#38 Barbara Luna, humma humma.

My favorite was “Jones, name’s Smith, sir,” followed by the girl who never got to marry Tomlinson in BOT.

Sorry for posting sexist comments.

40. max - December 7, 2007

Yep… they’re hotties. And Sirtis is still rocking it. Word.

41. SPB - December 7, 2007


…”Nona” in A PRIVATE LITTLE WAR. Not only was she insanely beautiful, not only did she flash more belly and cleavage than Nichelle Nichols in MIRROR, MIRROR…

…but the woman pretty much had a full-blown orgasm while waking Kirk from his comatose state. Watch it again. Probably the hottest moment in all of STAR TREK. Certainly got my mugato up and roaring, let me tell you…

42. USS Endeavour - December 7, 2007


On this list, I don’t think it’s shoes you have to worry about filling.

43. AJ - December 7, 2007

Ruh Roh,

It seems SPB is geeking out on us.

I actually just remembered Mariette Harley in “All our Yesterdays.” Holy Crap, Me Too!

44. Rainbucket - December 7, 2007

When I watched the syndicated TOS as a young kid, Uhura was always comfortingly maternal. An early impression like that sticks for a long time.

But when remastered Charlie X and Mirror came along, and I saw her with fresh 37-year-old eyes… holy great maker, Nichelle Nichols was hotness with warp drive. What a dazzling woman.

Jeri Ryan is genuinely pretty and sensual, but the Seven of Nine costumes were about as subtle as, well, Pam Anderson. That #1 spot sort of cheapens everything below it.

45. TrekNerd - December 7, 2007

“How can it be the “first” interracial kiss… when they DON’T KISS?”

Okay, it’s the first simulated interracial kiss.

46. HunterRex - December 7, 2007

My Top 5 Hottest Star Trek Crew Babes

1. T’Pol
2. Robin Lefler
3. Ezri Dax
4. Seven of Nine
5. Saavik (Kirstie Alley)

47. Classic trek - December 7, 2007

persis khambatta was one of star treks most beautiful women-although that was in film rather than the tv series. i understand she was to star in star trek phase two series which never happened but she was made up for test screens. a stunning woman who sadly died way before her time.
united kingdom

48. Ban An Appeal - December 7, 2007

I bought the HD-DVD player and first season of TOS a couple of weeks ago. First episode I watched was The Menagerie…Susan Oliver as Vina…. my God, what a stunner! Sexy as all-get-out. That woman just oozed it. And, Jill Ireland. Always loved her in “This Side of Paradise”. And I’m not even partial to blondes! And of course, Jolene Blalock…sweet!

49. dreamer28 - December 7, 2007

– Teri Hatcher is No. 49 – Transporterchief B.G. Robinson (TNG – The Outrageous Okona)

– Nikki Cox is No. 35 – Sarjenka (TNG – Pen Pals)

– Julie Newmar is No. 20 – Eleen (TOS – Friday’s Child)

50. Harry Ballz - December 7, 2007

Lynda Carter? Are you kiddin’ me?? Sure, she once had a nice chest, but that face!! With those chipmunk cheeks I kept wondering how long she was going to store those nuts for winter!! :)

51. Chris - December 7, 2007



52. Jon - December 7, 2007

Sorry…but naming Pam Anderson as #1 practically invalidates this whole list, IMHO :( . Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! (to put it in simple terms :) ) .

Lynda Carter was gorgeous in her time…but I am very partial to round faces and super heroines.

I do not find Jeri Ryan particularly attractive myself…her chest really seems to blind folks to a rather plain face…but again, that’s just my opinion…

Others that belong on the list (and may be there already)…Jacquelyn Smith, Linda Park, Barbara Luna, Sherri Jackson, Julie Newmar…hmmm…see a pattern here? All brunettes I believe…I think I have a bias :) :) …

53. Ed - December 7, 2007

Good Lord, Pam Anderson over Lynda Carter or Jaclyn Smith? Give me a break. And how does Grace Park end up near the bottom of that list?

54. willbueche - December 7, 2007

Lucy Lawless, granted, but where’s Hudson Leick (Callisto on Xena)? Hudson outshone everyone else on that show with her looks, to the point of blinding people. …due to the outshinyness, that is.

55. Jovan - December 7, 2007

They are out of their mind, for sure.

And guys, Kim Cattrall may not be the greatest looking woman in your opinion, but she’s not UGLY by any stretch. Stop looking at supermodels on your computers all the time. :P

56. DJT - December 7, 2007

# 49 “Nikki Cox is No. 35 – Sarjenka (TNG – Pen Pals) ”

Ahh, yes. Sarjenka. I totally forgot how Data’s pen pal turned out. :::sniff, sniff:::: It still brings a tear to me eye to remember her in that series she was in. :::sigh:::

Oh and for the record, Linda Carter was and very much still is …beautiful.

57. Chris M - December 7, 2007

7 of 9 is definitely deserving to be on tha list!

58. neal - December 7, 2007

pfft. t’pol is the only for me. she is pon far the best of them all.

59. Captain Quirk Trek Modeler - December 7, 2007

Best list?

1) Jeri Ryan.
2) Nona
3) Nichelle
4) Rand
5) There are just soooooo many.

What it must have been like to be Shatner. A new babe every week!

60. steve adams - December 7, 2007

What about Kate Mulgrew? :)

61. Gary Seven - December 7, 2007

My Star Trek Top 3:

1) Marianna Hill- Dr. Helen Noel

2) Barbara Luna- Lt. Marlena Moreau (I put my arms around Barbara Luna at a recent convention for a pic with her. I told her “You drove me crazy when I was 15″ and she replied “I hope I can still drive you crazy.” A great moment).

3) Nichelle Nichols- and I agree with #44 Rainbucket above. Uhura is more and more hot as I age. It’s interesting how we missed it as teens.

62. Batts - December 7, 2007

#41 is absolutely on point. Nona is the winner!! That scene alone says it all! How could I forget that!! There was also a quick shot of her topless in that episode. She was bathing!! Whoa!! She put her blood on that makah root and did her black magic..rubbing that weed on your bicep and spoke of a night of madness!! Oh yea! Sorry, Uhura you are still good, but if you could pull that off!!

Counselor Troi giving Riker an order to come to bed and then started having nightmares while getting laid. Hey! he is not #1! I wish my face was there instead of Shinzon!!

63. Batts - December 7, 2007

Ha HA! If leila Kalomi did all that just to get a man, she was on the wrong planet! She actually held out for 6 years, waiting for Spock, what a trooper.. What about Lt. Palamas from the episode ith Apollo. Walter Koenig said her pink costume was glued on her body and he hoped the studio lights would melt it off..

And Andrea the andriod…!!!

64. steve adams - December 7, 2007

But serioiusly I think Jolene Balock , Nana Visitor and Terry Farrell were the tops.
Pam Anderson shouldn’t be on this list…..:(

65. Trek Man - December 8, 2007

Its all about Marina Sirtis.

66. Starship Conductor - December 8, 2007

Wonder Woman should have been #1!

67. Iowagirl - December 8, 2007


Everybody involved was aware of the fact that this kiss would cause an outcry from the public. And although “lip contact” was forbidden, although the kiss was forced within the context of the episode, we are still being shown a kiss. Granted, a kiss which may require some imagination – but the historic importance of the scene is indisputable.

68. Captain Hackett - December 8, 2007


This link has a photo gallery of Star Trek chicks.


69. Harry Ballz - December 8, 2007

Hey, Hackett….thanks for the visual treat!

I am STUNNED at how stunning some of these Trek women are……… :)

70. Rick - December 8, 2007

Nichelle Nichols, Barbara Luna, Sherry Jackson, Julie Newmar, etc. etc. even as a kid watching these classic TREKS I had these feelings that really knew how to cast the female parts and film them. As I got older…well you know those feelings…;) Man I still think the women of the 60’s TREKS really rock to this day more than many of the other shows. Not to say the other shows were lacking in the female loveliness. :) Of course there were rumors through the years that a Mr. Roddenberry was very let’s say very into the female beauty. I mean look at the original Enterprise.;) Remember JJ make her beautiful, the big E!

Ahhh to be trapped on a planet with a Barbara Luna or a Sherry Jackson or Nichelle…;)

71. Captain Quirk Trek Modeler - December 8, 2007

Yes, thanks Hackett! WHOOT! Hottie alert!

72. OR Coast Trekkie - December 8, 2007

Here’s another good link for TOS women:


Ok, lets give love to some other Trek women on this forum:

Jadzia Dax – come on, who DOESN’T want to count the spots?

Ezri Dax – has that “obtainably cute” quality that’s attractive, but not out of your league

Kelinda – Barbara Bouchet, need I say more?

Andrea – Sherry Jackson’s outfit still has to be one of the top 5 Trek outfits ever

Tasha Yar – As a 6 year old, I first realized without explanation that I too was “fully functional” and understood what Data meant when she came out in that outfit…

The chick in TNG “Haven” on that ship with the plague

The woman that wants Riker to “wash her feet” (oh, there’s a special technique)

Beverly Crusher

Famke Janssen – Kamala from “A Perfect Mate” How could Arlik of Valt turn her down?

Vash – so mischevious…

The entire female Edo population from TNG “Justice”

Suzie Plaxon as K’Ehleyr – you know you would too… (what is it about Worf and his wives getting murdered?)

Joan Collins – Edith Keeler

KAren Montgomery – Beata from “Angel One”

Lisa Wilcox – Yuta (what s her specialty that she can cook up)

Angelique Pettyjohn – she could drill me on anything she wanted

Olivia d’abo – girl Q

Leeta (Rom?)

Sarina – the genetic enginerred gal that Bashir turned normal

Salia – almost Wesley, almost

Robin Lefler – almost Wesley, almost

Sito Jaxa – she redeemed herself, only to get killed by the Cardassians, probably the smallest girl in a Starfleet uniform..

This list could go on and on…

73. Vejur - December 8, 2007

I feel Nichelle Nichols is overrated. My personal hot list is
1. Jolene Blalock(wtf why isn’t she on this list)
2. Persis Khambatta
3. Jeri Ryan.

74. Captain Quirk Trek Modeler - December 8, 2007

Thanks OCT for yet another display of the beautiful women of Trek. Now, since we Trek fans are all inclusive can we have a showing of all of the fat and ugly women of Trek? How about some openly gay lesbians of Trek, or maybe a collection of the bisexuals and unisexuals of Trek? Don’t forget the Trans genders of Trek. How many of those do we have? Do we actually have an openly gay trans gendered lesbian of trek? I’m just curious because I keep hearing about Gene’s vision and how it was all inclusive and I just don’t see any of those persona’s around. Gene was supposedly such an open and feeling, loving individual. It never had anything to do with profit, or a wagon train to the stars…. It was all about embracing the fringe and accommodating the weakest mentality…. Right?

What about openly gay, fat, trans gendered, leftist, liberal, social utopian, survivors of a cruel and realistict world?

Have you ever met an openly gay, trans gendered, leftist liberal, lesbian?

75. Harry Ballz - December 8, 2007

Hey, let’s not bring my ex-girlfriend into this discussion!! :)

76. MichaelJohn - December 8, 2007

Just about every woman featured prominently on Trek has been quite busty and curvacious! Do you think that was just a big coincedence, or a calculated move by the producers? Hmmm…I wonder.

I’m sure those super tight costumes/uniforms were no accident either! As the old saying goes…”Sex Sells”, even when it comes to science fiction television and movies.

I’m sure many others here have already noticed that in “Trek’s vision of the future” most women will be sexy and busty, but sadly men will still be struggling with receding hairlines (Picard) and fat bellies! (Shatner and Doohan)

Mike :o

77. Harry Ballz - December 8, 2007

Now that Shatner has gotten older and fatter, he’s even horning in on the busty category as well!! :)

78. Captain Hackett - December 9, 2007

I have realized that the TOS has more beautiful ladies than the combined TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT series.

79. Jovan - December 9, 2007

# 74: There were going to be openly gay male characters in TNG on an episode (and then they’d possibly be recurring characters) but Paramount rejected the episode script. You can partly blame them, along with many of the writers after Gene went away not wanting to push the limits of TV. But hey, you still have the kiss between Dax and her former mate.

Frankly, I’m surprised Sally Kellerman as Dr. Elizabeth Dehner has not yet been mentioned.

80. Chris Roberts - December 9, 2007

Star trek has had many hot women.

My favorate are
1:seven of Nine(and Voyager Is my least favorate Star Trek)
4:Uhura(I may be the only one who thought she was a turnon In Star Trek V)
5:Rand(If the Internet had been around In the 1960’s you would have seen lot of fanfiction of her with Kirk)
6:Tasha(I had a major crush on her when the Next generation started.I love the Naked Now episode)
7:Jadzha Dax

Honrable mention has to go to Kira In the Mirror DS9 episodes.She was such a turnon In the attendent outfit.

81. big game - February 28, 2008

the hottest babe of all time in star trek would be nona, if you think jeri ryan looks great in those cat outfits, think about if nancy kovack would have had it on .this is what you do look at nona when she leaves the cave, frame by frame ,and you will vote for nona hands down, by the way you should put it on this stie, you will have more hits then ever before,i said it first.
