If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!
I actually had to think about this one for a moment. I never realized how many aliens there were in my favorite fandoms! This list probably came too easy, and if I were to think a bit longer, more aliens would come to mind.
I mean, you knew this one was coming. The Doctor is an alien with two hearts and a sonic screwdriver, always saving the world with a companion. What I wouldn’t give to be a companion one day.
Okay, okay. So I’m a little obsessed with Stargate right now. Teal’c is honestly my favorite character. His misunderstanding of the English language is just hilarious, and it’s even better when he makes his own “jokes.” Don’t get me started on his eyebrows.
By far my favorite Star Trek character: Spock. I still get a little emotional thinking about the late Leonard Nimoy. Being half-vulcan and half-human, Spock can be torn between logic and emotion, which I can really relate to.
One of the more famous aliens on my list is Yoda. Whether my favoritism of him stems from the fact of how small he is (I’m 5’1″) or how bad ass he is (despite his small stature), Yoda has become a gem for me in the Star Wars series. He’s definitely one of my favorite characters of the series (besides Darth Vader).
Drax the Destroyer
The funniest character of Guardians of the Galaxy is Drax (Sorry Chris Pratt), and I dare you to argue with me. Flirting, metaphors, and sarcasm are not in his vocabulary which makes for some funny comebacks. He’s also all about family and friendship. What’s not to love?
