I was hooked on sci-fi the first time I saw Star Wars on video when I was a kid. I missed the first two in the theaters, but I saw Return of the Jedi like 18 times in one weekend. The New Star Trek film starts this week and to celebrate Blockbuster polled sci-fi fans to find the most popular starship captain.

According to the poll, the most popular captain was Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly. Following him were James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Han Solo, and William Adama. Seriously, Picard is a better captain than Reynolds and Kirk, and he had all those catchy phrases like “Make it So.”

Other categories includes best sci-fi villain, Darth Vader naturally. Favorite sci-fi dude was David Tennant from Dr. Who. My favorite category is hottest sci-fi babe. The winner of the category was Seven of Nine. Yeah she was hot, but way down in fourth place is the hottest sci-fi babe ever — Caprica-Six from Battlestar Galactica. She almost made me wish for an invasion of robots.
