    Welcome to the SFF: Films and TV Favorite Sci-Fi Character Tournament! Here we will decide what everyone's favorite SciFi Character is. Here are the rules of the tournament:


    [li] Each voting round will last 24 hours. Once we get to the Quarter, Semi, and Final rounds voting rounds will be extended to 48 hours. [/li]

    [li] YOU MUST PM YOUR VOTES TO ME! I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY THAT ARE POSTED IN THE THREAD! This is to reduce clutter in the thread. [/li]
    [li] When you PM me your votes put the Current Round and Bracket that is being voted on in the Subject heading. This is to make it easier for me to keep track of the PMs since I will also be getting PMs for the SFF: Films and TV Trivia Contest. [/li]

    [li] By all means discuss the brackets, rounds, and results in the thread! [/li]

    [li] Let's have fun! [/li]

    This is so sick and twisted and cruel and wrong.

    Three BSG characters in the same bracket?

    AND Tigh is facing Sheppard in the first round of voting?

    Oh, the humanity!

    Voted. This round wasn't too tough for me, being a much bigger fan of BSG than Dr. Who. And does Starscream really stand any chance against Vader? --On a SW message board??? ;)


    Future rounds will be much more difficult...

    You'd be surprised. Natalie Portman regularly gets trounced in the Hottie Wars. That contest, of course, involves completely different "assets" than this one. [face_blush]

    Do we only vote for one person in each bracket, or one person from each of the pairings in each bracket??

    I feel bad for Starscream, he would have gone a long ways if not put up against Vader, on a SW board ;)

    I agree, just like I feel bad for K-9. Perhaps they should have been pitted against each other.

    It is tough, Six is hot, and Wash has so many good lines:


    [blockquote]Wash: "Everything looks good from here... (beat...playing with plastic dinosaurs over his console) Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive."
    (as Stegosaurus) "We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... 'This Land'."
    (as T-Rex) "I think we should call it...your grave!"
    (Stegosaurus) "Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"
    (T-Rex) "Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil laugh...now die!"[/blockquote]


    and



    [blockquote]Wash: "Hey, I've been in a firefight before! Well, I was in a fire." (beat) "Actually, I was fired from a fry-cook opportunity."




    Wash: "I don't want you to spare me, Mal. If you think you know what's happening, then you tell me. You wouldn't spare Zoe if she were in this situation with you, would you? You would be planning, and plotting and possibly scheming. So whatever Zoe would do in this instance is what I wanna do. Do you know why? No matter how ugly it gets, you two always come back with the stories. So... I'm Zoe. Now, what do I do?"
    Mal: "Probably not talk quite so much."
    Wash: "Right. Less talking. She's terse. I can be terse. Once in flight school, I was laconic."

    Wash: "I mean, I'm the one she swore to love, honor and obey."
    Mal: "Listen..." (beat) "She swore to obey?"
    Wash: "Well, no, not... But that's just my point! You she obeys! She obeys you! There's obeying going on right under my nose!"[/blockquote]
