    Well, some people may have a different idea of what "positive" means.

    Actually, I was joking about Uhura -- it seems they just made her the secretary of Star Trek.

    Seven of Nine and T'Pol, on the other hand, practically defy the stereotypes associated with women.

    Taken in proper historical perspective for when the show was produced she was portrayed as an intelligent and strong woman. She was a communications officer with science training not a secretary btw. Maybe you are thinking Yeoman Rand.

    Yup, she was in a very prominent role for a woman at that time, and served as an inspiration to many girls. (And then there was that black/white kiss, too, that set new standards.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Well, maybe it was just the makeup they made her wear.

    And how about Lorraine Gary in Jaws the Revenge? (I actually found the copy I made of that movie on VHS -- that was before laserdisc and right around Beta.)

    Can you believe I have never seen any of the Jaws movies more than a few minutes?

    Well, Lorraine Gary was about as bad-ass as she able to get for such a shitty script.

    And what about Lara Croft?

    Yes, never hold a bad movie against a great character!

    I did not see Tomb Raiders, but I think she is fine addition to the list of strong women.

    Not just a strong woman in the movies, but the video games, too.

    (I think we can spread our wings a bit so that we don't have to be exclusive to movies.)

    And Michelle Rodriguez frequently plays strong women -- she's known for her tough chick roles.

    Also, Milla Jovovich in the Resident Evil movies, and, of course, The Fifth Element!
