Her big gun blasting away at kill-crazed mutants, Serenity's Zoe does battle in the grand tradition of Alien's Lt. Ripley. She's tough — except with her husband: Then she goes all giggly.

"I'm a lover and a fighter," says Gina Torres, who played Zoe in Firefly, the 2002 TV series, and reprised the role in Serenity. "That's what's so engaging. She is the most balanced person on that ship. She has a loving marriage (to Wash, the pilot of spaceship Serenity) and a job she embraces every morning. She likes being a soldier. She's good at it."

The women are equally complex — and more screwed up — on the Sci Fi Channel's hit Battlestar Galactica. Flying a fighter or punching out one of her own male comrades, Lt. "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) is the orneriest, horniest pilot aboard.
