Yoda getting his light sabre out from under his frock was probably one of the all-time great screen moments, not just in sci-fi, but, strangely, he(?) hasn't made it to the top of the poll for your favourite sci-fi hero. Don't worry, he's in there somewhere.
A poll was carried out by Stratego Sci-Fi surveyed 2,000 Brits to reveal the nation's top 100 stars of the sci-fi world. Surprise omissions from the top ten include Doc Brown of 'Back to the Future' fame, who only managed 15th, and Mr Spock who warped in at 11th place.
So here, in reverse order, are your top ten favourite sci-fi heroes... does this match your list of supernatural saviours?

8. Marty McFly - Back to the Future
7. Captain James T Kirk - Star Trek
