aliensYesterday, we got to see some truly awesome fan-play as The Hollywood Reporter kicked off one of the sweetest photo projects imaginable, reimagining some of sci-fi’s greatest characters with some of sci-fi’s most popular actors. Firefly‘s Nathan Fillion took on the role of Captain Kirk and Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick checked the time as Marty McFly. And now you can see Avatar‘s Zoe Saldana playing this genre’s most ass-kicking hero, Ellen Ripley, from James Cameron’s Aliens, among others.

Saldana gives a great interview with THR, talking about all three of her simultaneous sci-fi franchises. (She’s also in Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Trek, of course.) As such, it’s no surprise that she should earn the spot of one of cinema’s most iconic female characters, in the movie where she turns from heroine to warrior.

Katee Sackhoff entered the pantheon of science fiction icons with her performance as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in Ron Moore’s 2004 Battlestar Galactica reboot series. She joined the sci-pantheon alongside unforgettable characters like Star Trek’s James T. Kirk, Babylon 5’s G’Kar, and Doctor Who’s Doctor (take your pick which one). Now she’s embracing that science fiction heritage in a very geeky photoshoot for, well, Geek Magazine. Check it out above to see Sackhoff channeling Kirk and Tom Baker’s Doctor, not to mention cozying up to a surprisingly cuddly Dalek.

Looking for an excuse to revisit Ron Moore’s acclaimed Battlestar Galactica reboot? Maybe our call-to-arms about the languishing Blood and Chrome spinoff has you longing for the good old days of Adama and President Roslin and Number Six and Gaius Baltar. Sure, it’s been off the air and out of the pop cultural consciousness for a few years, but it’s still sitting there on your DVD shelf or Netflix, just waiting for you to return to the Colonial fleet for another voyage. And if you need a little extra encouragement to rewatch the series, you’d better sit down, because these pics from a new charity calendar featuring BSG actresses Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff may leave you feeling weak in the knees.
