Discussion Thread: Sci-Fi Heroines

Doing the open threads this week, I noted (once again) the difficulty of finding sci-fi heroines who are women of color, particularly WOC who are also main characters and not relegated to background dressing. The other thing that was really frustrating was finding images that weren't totally sexxxified. (And as Liss pointed out when I was griping about this to her, just try finding a fat sci-fi heroine.)

Who are your favorite sci-fi heroines who break the typical sexxxified white glamazon mold?
