Comments: SF Babes Poll Quote-of-the-Month

No great surprise. Yet another one of the polls where you were obviously wrong.

McGivers was hot; I admire beautiful women who dig the superior intellect. The ability to incinerate planets is common in the sci-fi realm, but nobody on the Death Star made my lightsaber glow.

If ya know what I mean.

IIRC, McGivers (nice looking, for a redhead) was attracted to more than just the superior intellect; she was hungry for power, too, and the will to power. She was taken in by the whole Nietzschean Uebermensch eugenics ethos of Khan and his sidekicks. I didn't leave much of a light-side/dark-side choice to my readers in that particular poll...

Normally, I like "good" characters, but sometimes the villainesses just have more fun with their parts and make their characters more appealing.

OK, here is my second post for you.

Lt. Mcgivers has captured my imagination since I first saw the episode when I was about 10. I guess we share an attraction to history. Although for Lt. McGivers, it was much more... personal. I liked her because she was so much more of a developed character than Yeoman Rand. Personality wise, of course, but she did look good in the uniform. (nudge nudge, say no more)

I returned after reading your post over at the Llamabutchers. I thought I was the only fan of Rush's "Time Stand Still." Great tune.

I enjoy the site. Keep up the good work. I aprecaite your consideration of a first time poster.
