11 TV Scientists We Love!


Sam Carter, (Amanda Tapping) Stargate

Dialogue Sample: “You know, you really will like me when you get to know me.”

Made the List Because: She’d be an asset to any crew, and she delivered the above line with just the perfect hints of sarcasm and certainty. Very often, Dr. Carter was Stargate’s resident badass, and she could prolly take anyone on this list (except Spock) in a fight. A theoretical astrophysicist, pilot, and alien expert, Sam’s so brill, her brain was called a “national treasure” by her superior officer. She definitely put the “star” in Stargate.
