Compiling a list of ‘Star Trek’s Top 5 Hottest Babes’ was certainly a labor of love and one of which I undertook with great delight. After carefully reviewing countless photos of the most gorgeous, smart, and talented actresses to grace the show since 1966, I finally settled on the following 5 formidably intelligent and beautiful women, which I will now list with some surprising details about each one.

5. Alice Maud Krige

South African-born Alice Maud Krige was magnificent as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact (1996), a role which earned her a Saturn Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films for ‘Best Supporting Actress.’

Borg QueenAs menacing as a black widow spider, her pouting lips and calculatingly, seductive but sinister manner had Star Trek: TNG characters Jean-Luc Picard and Data on edge, wondering if they were about to be kissed or merely crushed by this fearsome creature. In 2001, she then reprised this character in the video game ‘Star Trek: Armada II,’ and the same year starred in the ‘Star Trek: Voyager series finale called “Endgame.”

Patricia Krige comes from a talented family, with her mother, father, and two brothers professionals in the fields of psychology and medicine. Alice’s first cinema film was Chariots of Fire (1981), and in 2015, she received the Special Jury Award for her performance in the film Shingetsu.

4. Theresa Lee Farrell

Jadzia Dax

The Iowa-born Theresa Lee “Terry” Farrell is best known for playing Jadzia Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Dax is a Starfleet science officer, and her intelligence, good humor, and feminine charms had a whole host of hot-blooded characters pursuing her until she eventually got together with the new Strategic Operations officer Worf (previously from Star Trek: TNG).

The Klingon officer was previously in a relationship with Counselor Deanna Troi, but after he is reassigned to DS9, Dax helps Worf allay any remaining notions he may have that non-Klingon female would be too fragile for him, and he eventually marries Dax in the episode “You Are Cordially Invited…”

Terry Farrell started her career as a successful fashion model. In 1984, she debuted on the prime-time television soap opera ‘Paper Doll,’ before making her movie debut in the 1986 classic comedy film Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield.

3. Jolene Blalock

T'Pol

Vulcan T’Pol from Star Trek: Enterprise had great sex appeal with Jolene Blalock cast in the role. The Californian-born stunner was a model from the age of 17 and had appeared in both Maxim and Playboy magazine before taking on the part of the ship’s Commander.

Blalock’s pouting, feminine and charmingly arrogant character creates a real sexual tension on board the Enterprise at times, to the distraction of several crew members onboard. Over time, she develops feelings for Chief Engineer Charles “Trip” Tucker III and, ultimately, mates with him after discovering he was showing interest in another woman aboard the Enterprise.

2. Famke Janssen

Famke JanssenFamke Janssen is known to many X-Men film fans as Phoenix, but she also made an early appearance on a 1992 episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation entitled “The Perfect Mate.” Famke plays a stunningly attractive Kriosian female empath called Kamala, destined from childhood for an arranged marriage intended to end a war between two worlds.

Entrusted by the Enterprise to escort her as special cargo, Kamala is a rare genetic mutant with the ability to sense men’s desires and adapt herself to becoming their perfect mate. Her alluring and playful charms play havoc on the crew with some comical effects. For instance, Commander Riker has to excuse himself from her after she hints at some pre-marital fun, saying, “Riker to bridge, if you need me, I’ll be in holodeck four.” In another classic scene, Picard, too, turns down her advances, and when she says, “Do you find me unattractive?”, Picard replies, ” I find you unavailable.”

Despite Picard escorting her down the aisle at the end of the episode to marry a Valtian ambassador in order to cement a peace agreement, she later tells Picard that she had bonded with him and that the Enterprise captain had made her a better person.

A former fashion model from the Netherlands, Janssen was originally offered the role of Jadzia Daxin Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but after turning down the part, the speckled look she had as Kamala in TNG subsequently inspired the look of Dax in DS9. Famke Janssen then went on to have a successful Hollywood career, starring in such movies as GoldenEye (1995), the X-Men film series (2000–14), and the Taken film series (2008-14).

1. Jeri Ryan

Jeri RyanThe final stunner on my list of top Star Trek women is another Borg, although this one is a lot more human looking than the first, in my defense. German-born actress Jeri Ryan plays Seven of Nine, a Borg who has her link to the Collective successfully severed, but with all of their efficiency and bluntness intact.

This matter-of-fact character starred in Star Trek: Voyager, dressed in a glittery catsuit and packing at least a 36D. After Captain Janeway encourages Seven to explore her humanity, Kim develops a crush on her, and after the apprehensive Ensign attempts to set up a date, she easily twigs his plan, and the conversation goes:

Seven: “Obviously, you’ve suggested a visit to the holodeck in the hopes of creating a romantic mood. Are you in love with me, Ensign?”
Kim: “Well, no.”
Seven: “Then you wish to copulate?”
Kim: “No! I mean, I-I don’t know what I mean.”
Seven: “…Nevertheless, I’m willing to explore my humanity. Take off your clothes.”
Kim: (panicking): “Seven…”
Seven: “Don’t be alarmed. I won’t hurt you.” (Kim grabs his pad and flees).

In the end, however, it is the charming and well-respected First Officer Chakotay who makes off with the fair Borg maiden at the end of the series.
