She's #3 on their list (behind Ripley and before Scully):

3. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace (Katee Sackhoff), Created by Ronald D. Moore; based on a character created by Glen A. Larson; “Battlestar Galactica” – It’s one thing to change a character’s gender before the project hits the screen. But Ronald D. Moore’s decision to make Dirk Benedict’s handsome, womanizing viper pilot into a hard-drinking insubordinate woman for his reimagining of “Battlestar Galactica” was nothing short of of fanboy anathema—and that’s not an exaggeration. Katee Sackhoff got death threats for agreeing to take the role, not to mention getting booed when she took the stage at the 2004 San Diego Comic Con. Little did they know that the “Battlestar Galactica” reboot would become a huge success, largely in part to Sackhoff’s memorable performance. As my mom always says, hindsight is 20/20, mother-frackers.
Despite the fact that Starbuck could drink most of the guys I know under the table and still be able to kick their asses, she never compromises her feminine mystique. In one of the most gut-wrenching events in the series, Leoben the Cylon tricks her into thinking that they’ve had a child together. Her maternal instincts kick in only to see that their "daughter" actually belonged to someone else. This moment, along with many others, show how her character evolved in very believable ways throughout the course of the series.
