SF Babes Weekly Poll (Andromeda)

A commenter on last week's poll noted that I had been neglecting competitors from some of the (to me) more obscure SF series from the 1990s on. For this week's poll, we'll start to remedy that by pitting the ladies from Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda against one another.

Full disclosure: I haven't seen a complete episode of this series, so I have to rely on hearsay for the following descriptions. I've gotten all images and descriptions featured here from the official site cited above (click on thumbnails for larger pics).

Lexa Doig portrays Andromeda Ascendant (aka "Rommie"), the AI of the starship of the same name:

Brandy Ledford plays Doyle, the ship's loyal android (and she would have been a worthy addition to our earlier cyborg poll!)

Lisa Ryder stars as Beka Valentine, commander of the salvage ship, Eureka Maru:

Laura Bertram portrays the semi-psionic alien Trance Gemini:

You can vote once a day in the poll, so have fun. And remember to check out previous winners in the Gallery.

Results (Posted 5 April 2005):

Andromeda Ascendant (Lexa Doig) 69 of 118 votes for 58% -- WINNER!
Doyle (Brandy Ledford) 21 of 118 votes for 18%
Beka Valentine (Lisa Ryder) 10 of 118 votes for 8%
Trance Gemini (Laura Bertram) 18 of 118 votes for 15%

I caught this a few weeks ago (I'll watch it when its on and I see it) and while Trance's makeup is usually just a little too off for her to look good in, one scene at the end really made me go wow. So she gets my vote!

I liked the first episode, and watched some of the first seasons. Now whenever I scan past it or see an ad for it, I have no idea what is going on.
