Gaping omission of Uhura.

Liv Tyler

seriously, this a joke right?

I concede 2 glaring errors...  1) Nichelle Nichols should have been on the list.   And 2) Dana Barros was an undersized shooting guard who still managed to become a one-time all-star with the philadelphia 76ers, and who later went on to have a disappointing season on the first fantasy basketball team I ever coached.  Why he was on my mind, I cannot say.

I stick by Jolie at the one spot.  Her influence on society at large is huge.  And she's way hot, so on the off chance she reads Mania and likes to bestow sexual favors on its writers, then my choice totally makes sense.  

Yes, I know it's a long shot.  But a shooter shoots.  Just ask Dana Barros.

I agree with fft5305's comments about Kathryn Bigelow.  She shouldn't be on this list.

She's directed one sci-fi film.  Is STRANGE DAYS that great?

Does Mason Brown know anything about sci-fi?

Oh and as for Liv Tyler...  I love a woman who speaks Quenyan.  But yes, her major influence was on my pants.  Nichelle Nichols should have bumped her off the list.  I just forgot.

Anne Rice doesn't write science fiction.

Duh!

This list is a total joke.  It needs to be rewritten and this list needs to be cancled.  Actually, yah know, for future lists they should have a Poll asking US the FANS what the "best" of anything is.  We the people who post here could obviously make better lists than this travisty.

Mason Brown here again.

MONTEZILLO: Does Mason Brown know anything about sci-fi... Well, let me ask you this... Does Mason Brown know anything about a dry spell that lasts throughout his teens? The answer, Sir, is yes! Therefore, I say to you, that my credentials are impeccable.

Bigelow is mostly on the list as a way to start the discussion. And because she had sex with James Cameron. That alone makes her influential in the sci-fi world.  Also, so help me, I love Point Break.   You may quibble and say, "that's not even close to sci-fi", but I don't care. I love it, love it, love it.  If loving Point Break is wrong, I don't want to be right.

To those who are upset at the co-mingling of genres under the rubric of sci-fi... well, you're correct.  But the title was getting to be a mouthful.   And "The 10 most influential women of the movies that nerds, geeks, and loners-who-run-comic-stores love" seemed like it might alienate the audience.  I know it made me feel bad about myself.

To those who think Sigourney Weaver should be at the number one spot.  Maybe.  Your points are well made. I don't think happen to think she be number one.  But I do concede that Galaxyquest was underrated.

Point Break is not Sci-Fi.  It is a bank robbery caper movie so why do you keep bringing it up?  What is the point?

Again you based this list off of how hot a woman is for the most part and how how awesome the Sci-Fi is.  It is that simple. 

I concede that Bigelow belongs on the list as she co-wrote Terminator, one of the seminal Sci-Fi movies of the 80's.

But both Jolie and Tyler are total and utter JOKES in terms of Sci-Fi.  They have done NOTHING in Sci-Fi that is worth mentioning.  The Lord of the Rings is Fantasy, not Sci-Fi.  Linda Hamilton is by far more important to Sci-Fi than Jolie ever will be in her whole life.  I don't care how hot Jolie is.  That is a fact.

Anne f*cking Rice?  WTF?  She has never written a word of Sci-Fi in her life.  How dare you put her in the same category as Issac Assimov, Orson Scott Card, William Gibson, Larry Niven, Bruce Sterling, not to mention a whole host of other awesome writers.  There are many more FEMALE writers who are so much better than Rice ever will be too.  Ursula K LeGuin, C.J. Cherryh, Madeline L'Engle, and Anne Maccaffery all also make Rice look like a joke. 

Again, this list is a JOKE.  It is NOT Sci-Fi.  It is a genre list and not even a very good one at that.

Mr. Brown - Point Break is pure awesomeness!  Stop explaining about the list and give us Blind Date stories.  Anything will do man, even something on Robert Lodge's hair would be great.  Just give us something!
