Some are green and some have drool acid, but all are out-of-this-world hot. Follow along …
No. 1 - Princess Leia Organa from Star Wars
Okay, first things first: let's get past the technicalities of all this and just accept that Princess Leia is, technically, an alien (seeing as how she is from a "Galaxy Far, Far Away," and the only planet known to support human life is Earth), at least for our purposes. Done.
Now, every guy's fantasy aside, let's start with some very basic facts: one, Leia is a twin. And we all know being a twin totally doubles your pleasure, doubles your fun. Add in the fact that she can handle a little technology, she's an awesome marksman (markswoman?), wears gold bikinis, is into role playing (like pretending to be Boushh), and … do we seriously have to even mention the hair? Entire sitcom episodes have been written about the phenomenon that is the "Princess Leia Fantasy."
The only con, of course, is that her dad is totally not the guy you wanna meet when you're "meeting the parents," but once you get past that (I heard he does have a real soft side underneath the façade), you got yourself a low-maintenance princess to battle with your lightsaber. If ya know what I'm sayin'. And I think ya do.
No. 2 - Sil from Species
Okay, raise your hand if you know a chick whose primary — nay, ONLY — goal is to get it on. Right. Those of you with your hand in the air can put it down, 'cause you're a filthy liar. Enter Sil, from Species. She's lean, she's certainly mean, and she's a matin' machine. Aside from the pesky little concept of killing her mate once she's had her way with him, she's the perfect chick! Oh, bugger.
No. 3 - Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager
Sure, we understand she was born human and became a borg, but we seriously can't deny someone whose name so humbly does the hotness-grading work for us. Plus, she works in outer space so, um … she's an alien to Earth. I feel compelled to point out, also, that she's used to holographic relationships, which means you get to go with the guys to the game while your hologram is wiping her tears during that Chick Flick you're dying to never see. Low maintenance, high hotness. Definitely a 7 of 9.
No. 4 - Turanga Leela from Futurama
Not just any lady can toss on a wife beater and spandex, throw their purple hair in a loose pony, and call it a day. Lots of male Rock Stars do it, but they don't have that sparkle in their singular eye to pull it off. Miss Turanga Leela, a cyclopean alien (we're conveniently forgetting the episode where she finds out she is a human mutant … and we'd like it if you did too).
Aside from all her physical attributes and the ability to kick some serious ass, Leela pretty much makes the perfect girlfriend: her parents aren't really in the picture (remember to forget that episode), she knows how to pilot a ship (take that however you like), and let's face it … she can't exactly be all up in your business. It's not like she can sleep with one eye open. Rimshot!
No. 5 - Ladies of Battlestar Galactica
The list wouldn't be complete without at least one (or two, maybe three?) robot babes. And while Number 6 and Number 8 may not be the subservient female robot of fanstasies past, there's still plenty to get hot and bothered about. You've come a long way, baby. But we've still got a long way to go before even the most lifelike of today's robots can compete with these ladies.
No. 6 - Inara Serra from Firefly
Even though Joss Whedon's Firefly only lasted a few episodes, the show did make a big impression. And how could it not with hotties like Morena Baccarin's Inara Serra? The short-lived show never did let us know exactly what was up with Inara, but at least you know you had a chance. Like many female characters in classic old westerns, Inara was a professional. Storytelling aside, we don't an astrobiologist to tell us that if there is life on other planets, chances are they are not Buddhist.
No. 7 - Serleena from MIB II
Yes, Hollywood's solution to Will Smith + Tommy Lee Jones = Unexpectedly Missing Something (the great WS+TLJ=UMS Theorem). And while there's certainly no shortage of common surnames, the Producers of MIB II realized there was a shortage of scantily clad women. Thank goodness they created Serleena, a shape-shifting alien intent on showin' the goods.
While she looks all hot and sexy here, remember that this is just a disguise. In her actual form, Serleena looks more like a hydra than a hot alien babe. And remember that hyrdas reproduce asexually. Sorry to ruin your day.
No. 8 - Alien Queen from "Aliens"
Do I seriously need to explain this one? Watch closely, as every man's eyes bug out of their head like a cartoon character, their hearts beat out of their chest, heavy panting ensues, and cartoon hearts float around their heads. I mean, the chick is fertile. I'm not alone here … right?
Have I mentioned she's fertile?
What? Not your type? Maybe you should Alien with an insect nearby. Many of the Alien alien's biology comes from that of earth insects, such as the way the it's a parasitoid - or organism that spends a good bit of its life connected to a host which it then kills.
While most of the aliens shown in science fiction are humaniod, it may be more likely that if there was life on other planets, they'd be like insects. After all more than half of all known living organisms on earth are bugs.
No. 9 - Leeloo from The Fifth Element
Very few women can pull off a glorified ACE bandage, but Leeloo certainly sets the bar pretty high.
She also has hair the color of Cheetos, and won't say much, since she … well, can't. One word, three syllables: MUL-TI-PASS!
While the language barrier may have been an important plot point in the film, real linguists do sometimes theorize and offer course on about alien language and how we might communicate with aliens.
No. 10 - T'Pol from Star Trek: Enterprise
As if her mind-melding looks weren't enough to prove her hot-worthy, she's fully certified in Vulcan neuropressure. And no, that's not a euphemism.
Add to the fact she's one of the only chicks who makes a Peter Pan haircut look good, and you've got yourself a certified alien hottie! The only downside, perhaps, is her being engaged (depending on what day you catch her). Oh well … live long and prosper.
While your chances of hooking with T'Pol are slim to none, your chances of one day meeting a Vulcan are....well, let's just say more likely than they were before. Using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope scientists from the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics and the SETI Institute now claim that there's a solar system which is a younger twin of our own, just 10.5 light-years from us.
Not really all that exciting until tell you realize that the star is called 40 Eridani A. Which just happens to be the home star of T'Pol, Spock and all the other Vulcans.
If Vulcan life were to exist on the planet, planetary theorists say the orbit of the planet would have to lie in a sweet spot around the star where liquid water could be present on its surface. For 40 Eridani A, this habitable zone is 0.6 astronomical units from the star. That means Vulcans would get to celebrate a birthday about every six months.
