    I loved your feminist supercrews! I would also like to nominate Devi and Frieda from Kim Stanley Robinson’s novel Aurora. Devi as engineer, because she kept the ship running against all odds, and Frieda in a leadership position because she kept the crew together when they seemed doomed and guided them home.
