Ming Na Wen Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Minorities are underrepresented in science fiction in general, but Asian women are especially rare.

That's changed with shows like Battlestar Galactica and Ming Na Wen's role in the upcoming Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Here are nine more smart, powerful, and sexy Asian ladies of scifi.

This post is written by my brother Nigel, who's taking time off.

Can I vote for Major Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell?
If not, how about The Peanuts, Emi and Yumi Ito, the twin singers from Mothra Vs. Godzilla. As a kid I had a crush on them.

Sorry Pat. Nigel gave me an update and I added the picture. She was in Defendor.

Hi Maurice. Just to offer a different perspective. Your list proves these wonderful actresses are not as rare as one might think. When you think about it, minorities and Asian women have really made a significant impact. Firefly, Fringe, Stargate Universe, Stargate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Enterprise, Pacific Rim and I'm not even counting our favorite anime and Godzilla films ;). You can't discount the powerful guest performances across the genre either. I understand your point but things have indeed changed significantly for the better. I hope Nigel enjoys his time off. sff
