More Sci-Fi Babe Polling: Attack of the Cyber-Babes

(Image courtesy of WorldHistory/Wikipedia)

JohnL has the latest Sci-Fi Babe Poll up over at TexasBestGrok. This week, it's the battle of the Babes in the Machine.

Take a random guess as to who I'm backing in this one. Go ahead. Funnily enough, I remember the first time I actually saw Jeri Ryan without all the cyberstuff - it was an episode of Voyager where she dreamt of being Borg-free or some such. Also, her hair was down and she had some flowing dress on. My first reaction was, "Er....I kinda liked her better the other way."

I'd also like to make abundantly clear that my dislike of Trish Helfer's Cylon has nothing to do with my hatred of the new Battlestar Galactica series. I just don't think she's that attractive. As for Kristanna Loken's T-3, well, she always reminds me a wee bit too much of Alicia Silverstone in a bad mood.

As always, vote early and often. And be sure to check out the Gallery of Winners. I was delighted to see that Tea Leone took the honors last week.

UPDATE: Just to quell any nasty suspicions of uber-geekery out there, no, I have never asked the Butcher's Wife to "assimilate" me.

UPDATE DEUX: Any Photoshopping of Jeri and a Llama is strictly verboten.

YIPS from Steve: You mean like this (scroll to the bottom) or this?

UPDATE TROIS: The Maximum Leader begs to differ. Little does he appreciate the difference between prudery and discretion.

Okay. I read that right. You prefer Jeri Ryan WITH the borg stuff... That caused even my geek alarm to go off. I have to say that perhaps your dislike of the new Battlestar Galactica is, in fact, poisoning the well against Tricia Hefler. She is the best looking of the (very good looking) bunch.

Yeah, I remember the first time I saw Jeri Ryan. She was 15. I didn't even recognize her in Star Trek until someone pointed me to an interview in which she named the high school she attended (same as me). When I went back to check the yearbooks, there she was! Never thought I'd know anybody famous.

And yes, she was hot back then too. But I have a funny feeling that not everything about her is "natural" now.

Jeri Ryan for this week's contest.

Maybe so, but you wanted to, right?

Alas, we know from sealed court records that Jeri doesn't swing.

But I'm with you on the best looking part. I think she also looks better with short hair than with long hair, hence the "better as borg than human" analysis.

She sings pretty good, too.

I listed the candidates in order of personal preference this time, unlike in some other polls. I'm sorry, but Jeri Ryan looks like she would just melt in high heat, what with the collagen lips and the silicone .... er, you know...

Never saw T-3, so I have to dq Kristanna Loken.
The cylon character is starting to get on my nerves, so she's out, leaving us with Jeri Ryan. Hell, if I was married to that I wouldn't want to share her. Jack, that's one big reason not to vote you into office, you pissed her off enough to leave you. Idjit.

Hush, Kathy.

I will be the lone voice for Kristanna in this comments thread.

Plus, she's the only one of the three that showed her ass in the role.

Jeri Ryan! I mean, look at those...um...auxillary, nutritional units. Thank God they didn't decide to mechanize those.
