Hoban Washburne

Nicknamed “Wash”, Hoban Washburn (Alan Tudyk) is the comical pilot and husband of Zoe Washburn on the TV show Firefly. He acts as the easy-going mediator and voice of reason to the rest of the cast, hesitant to run into dangerous situations and often found playing with plastic dinosaurs on his dashboard. He dresses as mellow as he acts, in coveralls with a Hawaiian shirt over top.

Kara “Starbuck” Thrace

In Battlestar Galactica, Kara Thrace, call-sign “Starbuck” (Katee Sackhoff), is the best Viper pilot in the flee, insubordinate, a drunk and a gambler. One of the few thousand humans left after the human-created machine race of Cylons attacked Earth, she goes through a series of personal, professional and spiritual trials as they struggle to find a new home planet. Willing to try anything and often found at the bar, she’s a tough chick with a wounded heart. Like the rest of the soldiers, she wears the signature double tanks.

Han Solo

In Star Wars, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is a reckless smuggler and the sarcastic captain of the Millennium Falcon. He accepts odd jobs, which lands him in trouble with Jabba the Hutt, but also gives him the opportunity to play a key role in the rebellion when transporting Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
