Most children think their mothers are weird. No matter how loved a mother is, she will always be from a different generation. Sci-fi mothers, however, are granted a special kind of weirdness. They do not even have to be human. They don't have to be older than their children. Some sci-fi moms are truly bizarre.
The Borg Queen: "Star Trek: Voyager"
The Borg queen (played by Alice Krige and Susanna Thompson) was first introduced in the movie "Star Trek: First Contact." She is not a mother in the traditional sense. Rather, she is the face of the Borg collective, a hive mind that shares thoughts between countless beings. Their kind is created by the bizarre method of harvesting various beings and adding machinery to them in order to create new "nodes" in the collective.
Anna on "V" (2009)
Anna (Morena Baccarin) may be a normal mother to her own alien reptile kind, but she is bizarre to humans. She attempts to give humans the impression that her kind are benevolent saviors. In actuality, she kills her mates, then lays eggs that hatch infant reptilians.
Anna's bizarre goal as a mother is to find a human with whom her daughter can mate and then kill grotesquely. Anna's plan is to use the hybrid child to control human emotion, which Anna believes is an aberration.
Athena (Number Eight) on "Battlestar Galactica"
Athena (Grace Park) is not a bizarre person, per say, because she is not exactly a person. She is a Cylon who looks human. Her daughter, Hera, is half human and is supposed to be the savior of the human race. We later learn that we are descendants of Hera. So it turns out that what we think of as "human" is actually part Cylon, and Athena is the mother of what we know as the human race. That's very cool! And really bizarre.
Dr. Mariel Underlay on "Invasion"
Mariel (Kari Matchett) seemed a little "off." That's because she was actually an alien clone of the real Mariel. The only difference between Mariel and her alien clone were those pesky memories of the time her real body was murdered and dumped in a river. Oh, and her alien body also "smelled different" to her children, and had a strong urge to sleep in water. And then there was that bizarre problem of being pregnant with a swarm of alien eggs.
Amy Pond on "Doctor Who"
Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) is a woman in a bizarre situation, as the mother of River Song (Alex Kingston) -- a daughter who is older than she. River is a recurring character who visits Amy and Rory (River's father, played by Arthur Darvill) at many points in time before they learn that she is their daughter. Until that time, they believe she is a mysterious time traveling woman, unsure whether she is a good or bad person. How bizarre!
