With Star Trek Into Darkness being released in theaters this week, it brings to mind the original series and Captain Kirk’s fetish for some Green Orion Slave Girl action.  It seemed to be the theme of the show.  So here’s some of the sexiest alien characters in pop culture history.

5: Supergirl, DC Comics


Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El is an underrated alien and comic book hottie.  Give me the Super Alien Next Door over the Exotic Amazonian Queen any day of the week.  It’s unfortunate that there hasn’t been an attempt to bring Supergirl back to the big screen ever since that dreadful Helen Slater-led 1980s version.  But if I remember correctly, I watched it a lot as a kid and her looks probably had something to do with it.

4: Anna, V


Boy haircut aside, the Morena Baccarin disguise this lizard from outer space is a clever ruse.  She’s fresh-faced and non-threatening… and then she enslaves the human race.  She’s like one of those women that work in one of those facial cleanser kiosks in the mall.  They flirt with you, pay attention to you, and before you know it, you’re coughing up $70 for crap you don’t want.  Enslavement sounds better.

3: Leeloo, The Fifth Element


She’s got a taste in clothes and she just goes on and on and on about that damned Multi Pass, but she’s played by a model so you know she’s got it going on.  Also, it’s possible that I didn’t fully understand this admittedly bizarre movie, but I’m pretty sure she’s like some sort of savior of the universe.  That’s pretty cool and not selfish.

2: Number 6, Battlestar Galactica


I had trouble putting this one on the list.  Number 6 is officially a Cylon and that means she’s more robot than alien, but she wasn’t built on Earth, so there.  I never watched BSG to be honest, but I can’t argue with the attractiveness of Tricia Helfer.  I struggled to keep her off because of the previously mentioned technicality, but it’s my list and I can do what I want.

1: Sil, Species


This one really wasn’t a question.  I was a quite impressionable young man when the original Species starting showing up on cable movie channels, so naturally Natasha Henstridge as Sil had to be #1.  What more can you ask for than a super hottie whose basic purpose on earth is to jump into bed at the drop of a hat?  Granted, the fact that she kills her mate shortly after any level of intimacy is a supreme disappointment, but Doc Ock didn’t seem to mind for too long.
