    I'm sorry if this has been done before.

    I thought that the female characters deserved their own poll.

    Which do you like best?

    I like them all, but I think I'll have to say River.

    Inara, I don't know what it was but she felt like one of those classic Joss characters that had so potential and good go in some many different directions. I just loved her.

    I don't really have a least favorite. I mean I guess if forced to pick it would be Zoe but not because I didn't like her just because I like Inara, Kaylee and River more.

    got to go with Inara, (excuse the pun) what a classy lady with a great mystery to her story that sadly we never got to see.

    I voted for Kaylee. The Verse would be a better place if there were more Kaylees. I like to think Jewel Staite portrays the character exactly how Joss wanted her to be and I think she did a great job making her character very believable.

    Aww, poor Zoe...If I could vote multiple times, I definitely would have voted for her. She's really funny and cool. I mean, they all are, but...well, they each have their own special qualities that make them unique...I like how she's tough but still has a good sense of humor.

    You know, Zoe would kick your *ss for pitying her! lol She's my favorite for being a strong character but still realistic. Plus she has some of the funniest straight lines in the show.

    River's my favourite
    And then probably Kaylee. Actually I met Jewel Staite on Saturday, and she was really cute

    Kaylee is my favorite character of all time of any series.

    I love her personality, and her kindness to all. I also love how she sticks up for a ship that not many people would, and when she's mad at you, you'll know it with out her saying a word. She can say anything to Mal and get away with it.

    I love Inara for her mothering qualities and how she sticks up to mal right when he needs a kick between the legs.

    I love River for her intution and explaining things, and her many hidden tallents.

    I don't really love Zoe, but she's strong and has a really funny husband.

    River is my favourite. It was close between her and Kaylee, but the whole concept of River is genius. Plus, Summer Glau is pure awesomeness. And holy crap Isa, did you go to Supanova?

    Well, obviously, Inara. I think her character really would have progressed if the show had been continued. Second probably Kaylee. Don't really care for River all that much even though she was essential to the show.

    I feel I'm in the minority here but I actually love Zoe. Not that I don't love all of the other ladies too (Nor the whole cast for that matter) But I feel Zoe isn't getting any love from anybody around here

    Tough question. All four are very good characters and I like them all. But if I have to pick one I say Inara, with Kaylee as a really close second. Then River and finally Zoe.

    If all female characters were always as good as in Firefly.

    Zoe, she makes the inner Klingon come out in me. But as a guest character I'd say Nandi (Melinda Clarke) from the episode Heart of Gold. Yeah, baby!

    This is a really tough poll, but I'd pick Inara because she's the sexiest and funniest.

    Inara - for some reason, although Heart of Gold is not one of my favorite eps, I lose it everytime I see her on the floor crying, and then at the end when she says she's leaving...I hate that we never really got to know her and what I know have to be incredible back stories on her character.

    I always think about that when I think about her character, she must have an amazing back story and out of the characters like she had the most room to grow and change and become something very different then what she started out as. One of those classic Joss characters. Yet another reason why I am still so angry that Firefly didn't last much, much longer.

    I voted for River. I'm not sure what it is specifically, but I love her character and her relationships with everyone on the crew - especially Simon, of course.

    Kaylee would probably be next, followed by Zoe and then Inara. All of the characters are wonderful, but I never really warmed up to Inara much. I think I would have if the show had gotten the time that it deserved. And I love Zoe and everything, but I wish we could have learned more about her too.

    This is such a hard question to answer...but I think overall it would have to be Kaylee. I just love everything about her. But I love each of them for different reasons and I love how each of the female leads has a totally different relationship with Mal.
