Fans love to get behind a strong leader who is competent in their role by getting the job done. Although women have found equality in TV roles, sci-fi was ahead of the game, showing women in powerful positions in not only our world but in worlds beyond the stars.
You don't have to be in a traditional leadership role to lead and have others follow, either. Sometimes those intangible leadership qualities are evident to those around them, and they earn respect just by doing what they do best.
Here are some of the toughest chicks in sci-fi, showing that leaders can't be just physically strong, but mentally strong too. Do you have a favorite woman on a science fiction show who belongs on the list? See if your favorite leader made the cut.
