This is perhaps the most personal episode of Game on Girl so far. By sharing our favorite heroes, Rhonda and I both share an awful lot about our backgrounds and our personalities. It’s remarkable the impact that popular culture can have on our psyches and the lasting impressions of all of these character are clear in our experiences.
We’d love to hear similar stories from you all. What are some of your favorite sci-fi heroes? Why do they stand out for you? Leave your stories and links to your favorite clips in the comments.

Regina and Rhonda
Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
