New Sci-Fi Babe Poll

(Alright, lemme alone. It's Monday morning.)

In case you haven't seen it yet, our friend John over at TexasBestGrok has a new Sci-Fi Babe Poll up. This week, he showcases the ladies of Battlestar Galactica.

I don't have any real fire about this one - to me, it's more a process of elimination than anything else. Despite the fact that she is currently ahead in the poll and that she comes from good, solid sci-fi actress stock, I just can't get excited about Anne Lockhart's Sheba. And although I think Jane Seymour is pretty good looking, Serena gets scratched at the post in revenge for Jane's wince-making work as "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman". Feh.

That leaves Cassie and Athena. I'm going with Maren Jensen on this one. Laurette Spang had a gap in her front teeth that always urked irked me. Plus, Athena happens to be my favorite of all the Greek goddesses, so that is worth a couple extra points as well.

Hey, John! Why didn't you include that bridge officer babe who always had the line, "Enemy ships - ten microns and closing"?

Urked? Irked.

I debated including the bridge officer but couldn't find a good enough pic. If I get any more "write in" votes like yours, I'll track down the best pic I can find and include her in an honorary mention when the poll closes.

And thanks for continuing to link to this weekly feature. I seem to be on the verge of permanently evolving into a Marauding Marsupial in the TTLB ecosystem, and I'm sure your links have been helping there.
