15 Sexiest Star Trek Women of All Time

Beautiful Babes Who Starred In Star Trek collage

Star Trek isn’t just for nerds anymore and that has brought some beautiful women onto the set, but there were still some hotties strapping on the spandex back in the day. We sat through hundreds of hours of all the series and films to come up with the 15 most beautiful women to ever join Starfleet and boldly go where no man has gone before.

Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols is, in many ways, the original Star Trek babe. Nichols began with the series first episode playing Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, the Communications Officer aboard the Starship Enterprise. Nichols normally wore her uniform on the show, but she was occasionally put into situations that allowed her to bear her midriff, but sadly, this was the 60s so that’s all we got to see.

She and William Shatner shared one of television’s first on-screen interracial kisses, which was a huge deal back in the late 60s. Since her time on the original series, she has returned for the first six films to follow on the big screen.

Nichols was one of the first African American women to portray a female character on television who was not portrayed as a servant. Because of this, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. personally requested she remain on the series after she made mention that she might leave.

Nicole de Boer

Nicole de Boer joined the final season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine to play Ezri Dax. Dax was the station’s counselor and a member of the Trill species, which meant she was a host and a symbiont, which was named Dax. The host, named Ezri, was brought onto the series in the final season following the death of Jadzia, who played the character for the first six seasons of the series.

De Boer has enjoyed working in Science Fiction having played Joan Leaven in the cult film Cube and Sarah Bannerman on the series The Dead Zone.

Joan Collins

Joan Collins is in her 80s these days, but back in the 60s when she appeared in the Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever” as the lovely Edith Keeler.

Collins’ Keeler played Captain Kirk’s love interest when he was forced to travel back in time to fix some errors Bones made after he traveled back in time and mucked everything up.

Sadly, Kirk is forced to let Keeler die so that he may save the timeline. The episode was considered to be one of the best of the series and was Collins’ fourth appearance on television.

Sherry Jackson

Sherry Jackson played the android Andrea in “What Are Little Girls Made Of?” in Star Trek. She was described as a “Mechanical geisha” and was not sentient in the same sense as Data from Star Trek The Next Generation.

Jackson was a former child star when she appeared on Star Trek and continued to work in Hollywood well into 1980 where she worked on television shows like CHiPs, Charlie’s Angels, and The Incredible Hulk

Noa Tishby

Noa Tishby in Enterprise

Noa Tishby is a beauty outside of Tel Aviv, Israel who played Corporal Amanda Cole in the episode “Harbinger” on Star Trek Enterprise. In addition to her work on the series, she has made numerous appearances in television including walk-on roles in NCIS, Charmed, Leverage, Nip/Tuck, The 4400, and The Drew Carey Show.

Tishby didn’t appear on the series much, but in an alternate timeline where the Enterprise was stranded in 2037, she was married to Doctor Phlox, had nine children, and her children’s children’s children… and on, eventually made up the crew of the Enterprise in the episode “E²”.

Denise Crosby

Denise Crosby

Most people who recall Star Trek The Next Generation recall that Worf was the Chief Security Officer, but that’s not where he started. He worked under the leadership of Tasha Yar played by Denise Crosby who held that position until she left the series in the episode “Skin of Evil”.

Crosby made the fatal error of leaving the show when she thought it would take her to bigger and better projects, but her career stalled. She was eventually brought back onto the series to play Sela, a Romulan daughter of Yar from an alternate timeline as well as playing the alternate universe version of Yar in another episode.

Emily Banks

Emily Banks played Yeoman Tonia Barrows in the Original Series who appeared in the episode “Shore Leave”. During the episode, she was trapped on the Shore Leave Planet and was twice-accosted by Don Juan.

She later caught the eye of Doctor McCoy who enjoyed his shore leave a little more than you might expect even quipping as he left the planet, “After all, I am on shore leave!”

We never got to see Banks’ character appear on Star Trek after this episode but fans might recall seeing her in episodes of Bewitched, Knight Rider, and Airwolf.

Jeri Ryan

Jeri Ryan in Star Trek Voyager

Jeri Ryan was brought onto the fourth season of Star Trek Voyager as the first human-turned Borg found in the Delta Quadrant by the crew of Voyager. She was eventually brought onto the crew and helped bring the ship and her crew home by the series finale.

Ryan has been working in and around Science Fiction for years since making it big on Voyager. She works primarily in television and has played parts on Helix, Arrow, Robot Chicken, Warehouse 13, and Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

Terry Farrell

Terry Farrell in Star Trek Deep Space Nine

On Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Terry Farrell played Dax, whom we mentioned previously. She played Jadzia Dax from the first through the sixth season of the show but died in the sixth season.

Farrell got her start in modeling before landing roles on shows like Quantum Leap and The Cosby Show as well as her feature film debut in Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School.

While Dax was likely her most notable role, she knocked out 94 episodes playing Regina “Reggie” Kostas in Becker and continued to act into 2003 when she retired from the craft to spend time with her family.

Chase Masterson

Chase Masterson in Star Trek Deep Space Nine

Chase Masterson played the Bajoran character Leeta on several episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Her character was something of a background fixture, but she eventually crossed over to pick up more lines in various storylines.

Leeta was created specifically for Masterson as a one-episode character, but the producers enjoyed her performance so much, they wrote her into subsequent episodes making her a recurring character.

Masterson has continued to work in television with walk-on roles, but it’s unlikely you have seen her. It’s more likely that you heard her voice as she has become a talented voice artist with roles on Doctor Who video games, as well as Star Trek Online, reprising her role of Leeta.

Linda Park

Linda Park in Enterprise

Linda Park played Ensign Hoshi Sato on Star Trek: Enterprise where she served as the ship’s communications officer. She was capable of learning languages in tight situations and eventually went on to create the linguacode universal linguistics matrix (Trek-talk for a Universal Translator) in the years following the series.

Linda Park’s breakout role was Ensign Sato, but she starred in the movies Popular and Jurassic Park III before landing the role. Since that time, she has continued to work in cinema as well as television where she has had various roles in Crash, The Mentalist, House, and Bosch.

Famke Janssen

Famke Janssen in Star Trek Deep Space Nine

Famke Janssen may be known throughout nerddom as the woman who brought Jean Grey to the screen in the first film adaptation of The X-Men, but she landed her first role on television on Star Trek The Next Generation playing Kamala on the episode “The Perfect Mate”.

The episode established that Kamala was raised from birth to take part in an arranged marriage that would end a war. Unfortunately, Picard develops feelings for her, which complicate things until he ultimately gives her away at the wedding.

This was only the second role for Janssen, who would go on to turn down a recurring role on Deep Space Nine. Janssen’s career began in modeling, but she has transitioned nicely into acting and we couldn’t be happier.

Jolene Blalock

Jolene Blalock in Enterprise

Jolene Blalock took on the role of T’Pol in Enterprise where she played the first Vulcan to serve aboard a Starfleet vessel. As a member of the Vulcan Science Academy, she wasn’t technically in Starfleet, which kept the show from screwing up the whole ‘Spoke was the first Vulcan in Starfleet’ from the series canon.

Blalock began modeling at the age of 17 in Europe and Asia having appeared on numerous men’s magazine covers to include Maxim. She was named the 10th Sexiest Woman in the World by FHM in 2003. She has had numerous roles in television and film prior to and since her time on Enterprise, but she hasn’t landed a major role comparable to T’Pol since the show ended.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana in Star Trek II

Fans were nothing but pleased when the gorgeous Zoe Saldana was cast to play Lieutenant Nyota Uhura in the revamped Star Trek film series. Saldana had already kicked ass as a Navii in James Cameron’s Avatar and would go on to tackle the role of Gamorra in Guardians of the Galaxy so it’s no surprise she could take on one of the most important female roles Science Fiction has ever created.

Saldana has been working professionally in Hollywood since she played Eva Rodriguez in Center Stage in 2000. Since that time, she has worked consistently with roles in films, often putting out 203 per year. She will reprise her role of Gamora in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and it’s sequel as well as Neytiri in Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 so she will be busy working well into 2021.

Alice Eve

Alice Eve in Star Trek II

We considered throwing up a picture of Alice Eve’s portrayal of Dr. Carol Marcus from 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, but why would we do that? She’s not only an incredibly beautiful woman but also a talented actor and it was clear from this scene that J. J. Abrams knew he could bank on her sex appeal in the film.

Eve has been working since her role as Miss Frayne in 2004’s Stage Beauty and doesn’t appear to be slowing down. She is releasing three films in 2017 and has made various appearances on television over the years to include a four-episode arc on Entourage.

Eve’s Dr. Marcus wasn’t in the third film of the new Star Trek series, but many believe she will drop in for the next film… at least, we all hope she will.
