Day 15 - Favourite female character

This one, I think, is much harder than male, mostly because while I very much liked the characters of Dr. Crusher, Dana Scully, and so on, I can't honestly say I feel that fangirly 'oh yes, this is absolutely the best female character I have ever seen on TV' feeling.

Obviously I quite adore Dr. Crusher from TNG, and she probably comes the closest in terms of the character I liked the best for the longest amount of time. Her backstory was so incredibly interesting--falling in love with a man whose superior officer was secretly in love with her, I mean, how Greek Tragedy is that?--and it was so disappointing when they failed to flesh that out. Unfortunately she suffered from being a stereotypical female character in science fiction shows before a certain time: the nurturer/carer. This isn't so much the case anymore, because too many people have just plain noticed. (Troi was the same--the counselor, FFS--and the other predominant female on TNG, Tasha Yar, who is head of security and not a nurturer... well, she got killed by a lava monster in a fairly otherwise unremarkable episode. I know that had more to do with Denise Crosby wanting to leave the show, but...).

Maybe I'm just overthinking things.
