Sci-fi 50: President Laura Roslin

July 31, 2012 | 5:47 p.m.

President Laura Roslin, "Battlestar Galactica" (2003): When we meet her, she is the secretary of education and reeling from a cancer diagnosis; she feels like the end of the world is coming. She's right. A mechanical plague called the Cylons descends on humanity and Roslin (Mary McDonnell), suddenly the highest-ranking official, is sworn in as president. The tale that follows -- her triumphs, defeats, tears, love, loss and faith -- showed a soulful and honest leader who would never let her people go quietly into the night. (Justin Stephens / Syfy)
