Hari Seldon. HE CAN SEE THE FUTURE USING MATH. YES, HE DOES SO THROUGH STATISTICAL ANALYSIS APPLIED TO LARGE POPULATIONS, BUT HE CAN STILL PREDICT WHAT THE GROUP WILL DO TO A SINGLE PERSON. HE IS AWESOME.
YES! Someone else that loves him, although I do like Salvador hardin and the other guy who solved the third crises... ;)

Favorite campy characters from low-budget sci-fi

Eros the alien from "Plan Nine from Outer Space" -- particularly the solarmanyte scene. "... your stupid minds! stupid! stupid!"

Ro-man from "Robot Monster" -- wielder of the deadly calcinator death ray and of the not-so-deadly bubble machine (?!)

Fangar from "Jonny Sokko and His Giant Robot" -- an evil character who might have turned out differently if he had access to orthodontia as a young man...
No videos :(

This is a hard one, too many to list, possibly:

Deckard - Blade Runnder
Kaneda - Akira
Dr. Nicolas Rush - Stargate Universe
Ender Wiggin - Ender's Game
Shua - Wonderful Days/Sky Blue

(Has any one calculated the the age difference between Anakin and Amidala? She's at least ten years older than he is.)
And she still doesn't meet that older, experienced woman criteria does she?

Arthur Dent from hitch hiker's guide to galaxy, I'm not sure if that qualifies as sci-fi though.

I remember Robot Monster. Really weird movie.

As a 10 year old, I was terrified by James Arness as The Thing.

Q from early star trek is interesting.

As a pre teen when Star Trek first came out in the 60's who eagerly awaited each episode with it's amazing special effects etc., the answer is obvious - Spock.

TOS is timeless and a classic, my middle daughter (2 of 3 or 4 of 5) is 17 and a Trekkie - I have the bluray set of TOS & we watch a few episodes when we get a chance. She tried not to show it, but she was visibly upset at Leonard Nimoy's recent passing.

Lol... I was the same.


When we got FTTP, our ISP also included a free Roku 3 as part of the deal...

We can now stream Netflix over our TV... every episode of TOS is available, and I usually watch 4 or 5 each night, not necessarily in order, though.

No commercials, either... :oldbiggrin:

The Tholian Web was the last one I watched, last night... one of my favorites. :oldwink:

It was first broadcast on November 15, 1968, and I was 19 years old... lol

Haha nice choice you missed Kaylee from firefly.

My favorite would have to be Rodney McKay from Atlantis.
With the doctor from Voyager coming in a close second the Photonic cannon and his love confession to Seven was epic.
