Sexy Aliens

I cover a lot of territory in Square Pegs. I don't simply bang on about one topic every day or every week like most bloggers, all the ones who are more popular than me. I'm a Square Peg. No offence, but I don't even think about you, the reader, when I compose my posts. I hope people read what I write and connect with it somehow, but it all starts with whatever tickles my fancy.

My fancy this week is frivolous, nerdy and a tad sexist. Here is my top 10 sexy Star Trek aliens. (In no particular order apart from T'Pol, on whom I have a bit of a crush at the moment. That's her on the right.)

Lieutenant Illia is a Deltan and was played by Persis Khambatta in Star Trek: The Motion picture. 7 of 9 is a human/borg and was played by Jeri Ryan in Voyager. Famke Jannssen played a Kriosian named Kamala in The Next Generation. Sub Commander T'Pol, a Vulcan, was played by Jolene Blalock. Jadzia Dax is a Trill and was played by Terry Farrell in Deep Space Nine. Olivia D'Abo played a Q named Amanda in The Next Generation.

Marta (Yvonne Craig, left) in the pilot episode of Star Trek, and Gaila (Rachel Nichols) in the J.J. Abrams film version, belong together as Orion females. Lieutenant Talas (below) is Andorian as was played by Molly Brink in Enterprise. Nana Visitor played a Bajoran Star Fleet officer named Kira Nerys in Deep Space Nine, and sexy Klingon B'Elanna Torres (above right) was played by Roxan Dawson in Voyager. B'Elanna is half human which is probably how she made this list: no offence to Klingons.
                                       
I apologize to all the non humanoid sexy aliens who didn't make my top 10, and actually didn't even come into consideration. However, I am human and I find the human female form generally appealing even with unusual colouring, facial oddities and, antennae.

Who is your favourite sexy alien? Male or female. From any movie or TV show. If you need some inspiration, try the following sites. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this pressing and pertinent issue.

    1. Ha ha. Gaila and Marta are counted as one. Gaila was JJ Abrams nod to the Marta character in the original Star Trek. Thanks for visiting.

  3. Spock! (Young Spock, I should say.) Also, Starman. Remember him? Or does it have to be all Star Trek?

    1. Spock? Is it the ears? I think that's why I like T'Pol (or maybe its that killer body of hers). You can nominate Starman. Jeff Bridges right? I only restricted myself to Star Trek because I'm a fan.

    2. I'm a fan of Star Trek too, so we don't have to drag Jeff Bridges into it. Spock, not because of the ears, but because of his demeanor. How high he could raise that eyebrow while saying, "Fascinating." And how loyal he was to Jim. And how serious and almost condescending he was, but at the same time, there was that innocence about him. And then of course, how dignified he was.
