[[caption-width-right:330:[-The Bridge Bunnies in their natural habitat.-] ]]
->''"Is this a ship of the [[NorseMythology Valkyries]]?"''
-->-- '''Q''', ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''

Someone other than TheCaptain needs to actually ''run'' the CoolStarship, which is where the Bridge Bunnies come in. They're a pair (or trio) of young, attractive twentysomething women (see OfficeLady) who practically live on TheBridge, and deal with [[CommunicationsOfficer opening hailing frequencies]], giving orders to the pilots of the HumongousMecha squadrons, reporting that the ReadingsAreOffTheScale, activating the AppliedPhlebotinum, [[Film/GalaxyQuest repeating whatever the computer is saying]], warning of {{Negative Space Wedgie}}s, and the like. A staple of Japanese {{anime}} shows that feature large capital ships.

Off duty, they're frequently romantically [[PairTheSpares paired with minor characters]], or can be the GirlOfTheWeek. They're invariably female, although a token male junior bridge officer may be sufficiently intimidated by them to serve as [[PluckyComicRelief Comic Relief]]. Token males in this position will also likely be [[HoYay swinging their bat the other way]], unless someone else on the crew fills that role.

Less common in Western shows these days, where bridge personnel are more likely to be competent professional officers of ''both'' sexes. Women on the bridge aren't necessarily Bridge Bunnies ''per se'', nor are junior officers doing menial jobs... but [[ImprobablyFemaleCast a bridge]] ''[[ImprobablyFemaleCast full]]'' [[ImprobablyFemaleCast of young, pretty female junior officers, and on which all of the senior officers with real authority are male]], is a textbook example of the trope (compare OfficeLady).

A specialized version of MissionControl, with all the twists therein possibly applicable. They occasionally serve as [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]], [[GreekChorus commenting on the action]] and what's going to happen next.

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* ''SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' / ''{{Robotech}}''
** Kim, Shammy, and Vanessa are the {{Trope Namer}}s.
*** The novels by Jack [=McKinney=] have Kim, Shammy, and Vanessa [[AscendedMeme affectionately referred to as]] "the Bridge Bunnies" by the rest of the crew. The snarkier ones who dared used the nickname, "Gloval's Harem," learned very quickly from Claudia to ''never'' say that to their faces.
** ''MacrossII'', a sequel to ''SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' made without the original creators, included three young female mecha pilots (Natasha, Saori, and Amy) who fufilled a similar function.
** Sally and Miho from ''{{Macross 7}}''
** ''MacrossFrontier'' has a team of bunnies on the job on the Quarter, as well as Bobby, the male helmsman who is [[CampGay camp]] enough to count.
** The American-created sequel film to ''{{Robotech}}'', ''The Sentinels'', genderflips this trope by having the Commanding officer of the SDF-3, Admiral Lisa Hayes-Hunter, select a trio of handsome ''men'' to fill the same roles on her bridge.
* ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'''s bridge crew were competent ship-runners supporting their GeniusDitz commander. Ruri and Megumi, particularly, had several focus episodes.
* All series of the Mazinger trilogy (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'') featured Bridge Bunnies. They used to be a male trio, though, and [[ManInWhite wore white uniforms]]. They performed the ordinary functions of MissionControl, collecting and interpreting data and reading it to TheProfessor or the pilots of the HumongousMecha, as well as sending them orders or receiving their messages. The trio of UFORoboGrendizer Bridge Bunnies were called Hayashi, Yamada and Aoi.
* On ''{{Simoun}}'', the ''Arcus Prima'' had them, but the ''Messis'' didn't. Of course, given the ''Simoun'' universe, it's possible that some or all of the Bridge Bunnies could have been young men who hadn't lost their female secondary sex characteristics yet.
* ''GundamSEEDDestiny'': the lone female bridge bunny (Miriallia Haw aka Milly who was also one in the previous series) plays a relatively large role in the story. In the original ''GundamSEED'', after going from RichBitch to FallenPrincess, Fllay Alster becomes a bridge bunny under Natarle Badgiruel's orders in the ''Dominion''. The Archangel, meanwhile has the female (acting) captain Murrue, Milly herself, and a group of male bridge bunnies leaded (sorta) by Sai Argyle. [[spoiler: All of the Dominion bunnies, along with Natarle and including Fllay, get killed in the final battle when Le-Creuset blows up their escape pod for the kicks. The Archangel ones survive.]]
* ''MobileSuitGundam'' had Sayla Mass, Frau Bow, and Mirai Yashima (who actually was the pilot of the ship, making her TheLancer to TheCaptain Bright Noa), in addition to two male Bunnies named Marker and Oscar whose posts are over everyone else's heads. Sayla eventually gets promoted from Bridge Bunny to fighter pilot. Subverted in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', where the bridge bunnies that helped Captain [[GentleGiant Henken Beckner]] and later Captain Bright are ''male''.
* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'': Amy Limietta together with ThoseTwoGuys Allex and Landy for the Arthra in the first two seasons. The third season has Shario Finieno, Alto Krauette and Lucino Lilie for [[MissionControl Long Arch]]. In both cases, the commanding officer is also female, along with [[ImprobablyFemaleCast almost everyone else in the show]].
** This is later subverted in the third season, after the destruction of [[spoiler:Long Arch]], Alto becomes the new helicopter pilot [[spoiler:who replaces Vice]], and Lucino becomes the helmswoman of the Arthra [[spoiler:which replaces Long Arch]], leaving Shario alone with Griffith.
* Most of Kaiba's monitoring staff during the Battle City tournament and Kaiba Corp Grand Prix arcs (and they All. Looked. The. Same. Except for their HairColors). Hilariously lampshaded in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
-->'''Mokuba''': You have a harem big bro?\\
'''Kaiba''': Yes. I created them to shun them with my cold indifference.
* ''TenchiMuyoGXP'': Yamada Seina's [[UnwantedHarem constantly-growing]] harem effectively serves as his bridge bunnies. Earlier, [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Three Guys]] filled the role before being PutOnABus.
* ''StarshipOperators'': Naturally, most of the cast are female. This is justified by the fact that they're essentially a renegade ship funded and filmed by a television company who demanded that they switch the crews of the three bridges to all-female except the Captain (eyecandy for the viewer, both in real life and in-universe).
* ''Anime/IdolmasterXenoglossia'': Naze, Sorewa, and Nareba.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' surprisingly had this in TheMovie, with Peorth having three subordinates in overseeing the Yggdrasil system: Ere, Ex, and Chrono.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'':
** ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' features the Hypnos operators Riley/Reika and Tally/Megumi. Riley advances to AscendedExtra status (due to her [[SubordinateExcuse relationship with Yamaki]]), but Tally's role never expands beyond "We've got another Wild One; deploying tracer."
** ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' brings us another set: Miki and Megumi. (Yes, another Megumi with short blonde hair and no, she doesn't get any more character development. Be sure to check them out when the episode is animated by the 'fanservice' team.)
** ''Savers'' subverts it occasionally, when they actually go out and assist in the battle. The two [=PawnChessmon=] seen doing menial chores around the base belong to them.
* In {{Code Geass}} the Black Knights get three Bridge Bunnies named Futaba, Hinata and Minase in the second season.
* ''GhostInTheShell''
** There is a line of mass-produced female Bridge Bunny androids. Different organisations use different models, but every bunny-bot in the organisation is identical - Section 9 have brunete androids in a pink blazers, and the army seem to use models with short black hair and glasses (Glasses? On an android?). Not only can they man the control centre, they also come in handy when in one episode, two are used as [[DistractedByTheSexy sexy twins to distract the guards]].
** Besides serving coffee, Section 9's operators are also the sole pilots of the unit's tilt-rotor aircraft, and can even take care of children.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has Maya Ibuki, Makoto Hyuga, and Shigeru Aoba. There are a bunch of others as well, but none are given names, distinctive character designs, or personalities.
* Played for laughs in ''TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya''. The immensely popular episode "Day of Sagittarius" has our FiveManBand thrust into the roles of space battlefleet commanders, and their ships are all staffed with Bridge Bunnies of their own imagining.
** Haruhi's ship has assorted aliens.
** Itsuki's ship is staffed with ''{{henohenomoheji}}'', actually a simple drawing exercise using hiragana characters to make a face.
** Mikuru's ship is staffed by stuffed animals - [[ThrowItIn which really originated from doodles that Haruhi's voice actor Aya Hirano left on her scripts]].
** Yuki, the unimaginative one, has staffed her ship with nothing but [[CaptainErsatz clones]] [[ShoutOut of]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion herself]].
** Only Kyon's ship has the more traditional Bridge Bunnies if you ignore their uniforms.
* Belvedere Coco, Celtic Midori, and Amarone Slantheav from ''{{Vandread}}''. Subverted to a certain extent, because the only male on the bridge is the ship's navigator. In a further subversion, most of the female bridge crew are wearing relatively conservative outfits (one is pregnant, one dresses in a full-body bear outfit, and the captain is an old woman), whilst the ''guy'' is obliged to be naked in quite a number of scenes. Finally, [[spoiler:the most scantily-clad woman on the bridge is later revealed to be a man in drag.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}''"
** Mary and Shelley are the Bridge Bunnies of the Durandal.
** The half dozen or so 100-Series Realians that were engineered to look exactly like Jr's (the captain) first romantic interest. Physically they are 12-year-old girls. The girls had added combat value against Gnosis, due to their ability to activate the Hilbert Effect.
* ''{{Gundam 00}}'' has both female (Christina and Feldt) and male (Lasse and Lichtendal) Bridge Bunnies, but the girls, along with BunnyEarsLawyer captain Sumeragi, get much, '''much''' more attention. Presumably, this is because they, like [[strike:most]] all but two [[GenkiGirl women]] in the series, have...er...rather prominent bosoms.
** The survival rate is [[spoiler:equal for Bridge Bunnies of both genders: 50%. Lichty and Christina [[TogetherInDeath die together]] [[TearJerker and very tragically]], Lasse and Feldt make it and return for Season 2, and are soon joined by another female bunny, GenkiGirl Mileina Vashti, and much later by Mileina's mom [[HotScientist Linda]].]].
** [[spoiler: Marie Parfacy]], [[spoiler: Saji Crossroad]] and Anew Returner join the crew as bridge bunnies. The first two mentioned only filled the roles temporarily, as they promoted themselves to {{Sixth Ranger}}s (complete with {{Combining Mecha}}s) by joining the Meisters in action ([[spoiler: Marie]] works with [[BattleCouple Allelujah]], [[spoiler: Saji]] works with [[BashBrothers Setsuna]]). Anew became the love interest to [[BackupTwin one of the Meisters]] [[spoiler: until it is revealed that she is a ManchurianAgent and her subsequent [[TearJerker and tragic]] death.]]
* Almo and Coco of the ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' gameverse.
* Ryouko, Saki and Megumi in ''DragonautTheResonance''. Besides the standard Bridge Bunny duties, they also handle the PostEpisodeTrailer.
* ''{{Geneshaft}}'' "justified" this with the explanation that, thanks to GeneticEngineering, society now consists mostly of women, and only a controlled number of men (to cut down on violence). This is just the beginning of the utterly stupid science in the series.
* Ayame Futaba, Ichijiku Hinata, and Mutsuki Minase from ''CodeGeass R2''. One magazine lampshaded this by saying that the girls were carrying out "the long-standing robot anime tradition of the trio of operator girls".
* In ''SakuraWars'' each of the three theatre/combat troupes has a set of Bridge bunnies. The original Tokyo Team has the Kaze-gumi, who coridnate the attacks from headquarters with the male general and female major, run the train, airship, and of course serve as bridge crew for the larger airship the Mikasa. The girls also work as [[OfficeLady office ladies]] in the theatre, two of them doing paper work the third working the gift shop. The Paris team has Mel and Ci (a pun on the French word Merci), who dress in maid uniforms have the same theatre duties as their paris counterparts and similar battlefield duties. The New York Team, has the Rainbow Division, who again serve the same roles.
* ''GallForce'' is what you get when you make a team of Bridge Bunnies into the protagonists.
* Tsubael from ''BlueDrop'' is perhaps more the competent MissionControl type, but her role in the series fits this trope rather well.
* ''RahXephon'' - In reference to an attractive female character, one male extra comments to another, "Whoa, check out the sweet new bridge bunny."
* ''GoDannar'' had a couple, who apparently got promoted to [[spoiler: mecha pilots]] by the end of the series.
* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' references the trope: Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa, GenreSavvy captain of the Tuatha de Danaan, is young and attractive. When Kaname first meets Tessa, she assumes she is a Bridge Bunny, and Tessa plays along for awhile.
* Yuki(Nova) from ''SpaceBattleshipYamato''.
* ''{{Manga/Outlanders}}'' has a set of bridge bunnies on Earth operating project Pheonix. They aren't given names, but one of them, without warning, [[spoiler: guns down power-mad General Togo]].
* Hosuke, an amoral mad scientist who wants to TakeOverTheWorld in ''CannonGodExaxxion'', has a great many of these to act as support crew for his mecha. Some of them are robots he's created, some of them are scientists he's brainwashed, and all of them have been programmed one way or another to love him and be absolutely loyal to him. (It's ''exactly'' as twisted and repulsive as it sounds.)

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* Jayne's fantasy sequence in the ''[[{{Firefly}} Serenity]]'' comic ''Better Days'' involves him commanding a ship crewed entirely by Bridge Bunnies.
* The ''MarvelMangaverse'' version of the Fantastic Four has Alicia Harkness and Agatha Harkness serving as Bridge Bunnies to Reed Richards, as a sort of homage to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Fic]]
* In The Sage of Toad's [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5565307/1/ ARSENAL]], the Nightshift Bridge Bunnies from ''[[IkariShinjiRaisingProject The Ikari Shinji Raising Project]]'' are actually Gendo Ikari's sleeper agents who try to wrest back control of NERV from Shinji after he takes over. These methods include steadily BloodierAndGorier acts of terrorism, assassination attempts against Shinji and his friends, and steadily escalated acts of violence and just plain insane [[RuleOfCool action sequences]]. But [[http://i354.photobucket.com/albums/r405/DodgerTalon/3_techs.png looking at them]], you'd never [[BewareTheNiceOnes suspect a thing]]...
* In addition of Maya, Makoto and Shigeru, Ritsuko in ''FanFic/AeonNatumEngel'' abd ''FanFic/AeonEntelechyEvangelion'' has her own little army of MAGI technicians (Maya being the senior) who, unfortunately for dear Dr.Akagi's nerves, frequently end up starting Tachikoma-like arguments with each other.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' plays this trope snarkily straight. Gwen [=DeMarco=]'s official capacity is inherited from her character in the ShowWithinAShow, Tawny Madison. Her job is to repeat everything the computer says, word-for-word. {{Lampshaded}} into a pile of smoking ash about three-quarters of the way through the movie: "Listen - I have ''one'' job to do on this ship, and it's stupid, but I'm gonna do it!"
** Also by the fact that the computer literally will not listen to anyone but her.
** It's no wonder the Thermians had trouble running the ship they built, when their own computer won't listen to them.
* Likewise in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' parody ''[[WebOriginal/StarWreck Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning]]'', where the primary job of the helmswoman is to look darn good and make fun of the Captain/Emperor. The extras at the back of the bridge are also all female (and all in high heels).
* ''Film/StarTrek'': Despite having been a clear Bridge Bunny in the original TV series (and subsequent movies), Uhura in the 2009 reboot of ''Star Trek'' is portrayed as smart, competent, and an aversion to this trope.
* In ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1117581/ Arena]]'', the control room of Logan's illegal gladiator combat broadcast is operated by Kawaii and Kaneko, a pair of attractive young women who spend half their time responding to barked orders by hitting buttons on consoles and the other half of the time being eye candy.
* [[TwinThreesomeFantasy Marlene and Charlene]] from ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. "Chew your gum!"
* Lampshaded in ''[[Film/CarryOn Carry On Spying]]''. The captured heroes are taken to the villain's ElaborateUndergroundBase, which is full of catsuited females bustling about.
-->'''Villain:''' This is our headquarters.\\
'''Hero:''' [''[[EatingTheEyeCandy eyeing a bridge bunny's posterior]]''] Looks more like hindquarters to me!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{UFO}}''
** Lt. Gay Ellis, the Moon Base commander in ''UFO'' (1970), becomes more like an office assistant when any male cast members visit the base. Partly justified because these men outrank her, but you'd think they could let her continue doing her job...
** Played straight at the subterranean SHADO headquarters on Earth, which has a largish number of young female staff in skintight uniforms. Their main function seems to be acting as a backdrop for the male cast.
* ''Series/{{Space 1999}}'': Moonbase Alpha has a large number of female crewmembers, but only one of them (Dr. Russell) plays any real part in the story.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek''
** Yeoman Rand from the first season. She is not shown doing much. She is useful mainly for getting kidnapped and making coffee with ''phasers''.
*** Which is actually pretty badass, when you stop to think about it.
** Uhura started under this trope. Short skirt and the old-timey phone operator headset. In the [[WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries animated version]] her character started to show signs of breaking out of this role, handing off her Bridge Bunny duties to M'ress, the Bridge Kitty; and once the movies roll around, she ditches this completely and [[TookALevelInBadass takes multiple levels in badass]].
** Also averted in the original series pilot. Number One (played by Majel Barrett) is tough and competent. Her character was cut due to Executive Meddling. According to Word of God, they could keep "the woman or the Martian," (Spock) but not both.
* ''Series/{{Quark}}'': The Bettys, played by two of the Doublemint Gum twins. One of them was a clone (the pretty one) and they both lusted after TheCaptain Quark.
* ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaClassic Battlestar Galactica]]'' - Flight Corporal Rigel (played by Sarah Rush), though Athena tends to work in the bridge as well.
* ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica-2003]]''
** The three main bridge operators are a woman and two men, Dualla, Gaeta, and Hoshi, respectively. The male bridge officers, Gaeta and Hoshi, are eventually revealed to be in a relationship . . . with each other. Fans of these three characters have enthusiastically claimed the "bridge bunny" moniker.
** Lt. Dualla is a classic Bridge Bunny being young pretty and subordinate.
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'':
** Major Kevin Marks, who always seem to be around the currently visited ship. He was present on every US-made ship so far -- even being in two places at once. His role is a bit hazy; due to the Daedalus-class' bridge configuration it's unknown if he's pilot, weapons officer or something else. In addition to his multifarious roles, he also seems to be the ship's XO, that is, second in command. The only time he's shown doing anything else is when he's hacking his own console to regain control of the Daedalus before it crashes. He fails. Sort of. [[spoiler:Sheppard dives in with a Traveler ship and jumps through the planet with both ships in hyperspace; Marks finishes hacking a few seconds after that.]]
** Walter Harriman. He has one job, consisting of [[EngagingChevrons repeating which Chevron is encoded and locked]], and damn, does he do it well. He also opens and closes the stargate's iris. Lampshaded in the seventh season episode "Heroes".
* ''SpaceMutiny'' had Bridge Bunnies who were downright ''Playboy Bunnies.'' They were wearing singlets and everything. (Granted, some other bridge staff wore actual uniforms, but still...)
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In "The Day Of The Daleks", future-Earth is run by a male Controller. All the technicians who report to him appear to be blonde young women.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Starships in David Weber's ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' cycle tend to have a high number of females aboard, but the author usually avoids invoking it as this trope. One female character, however, is called out in-story on the [[SpearCounterpart disproportionally high number of]] {{bishonen}}s in her bridge crews.
* The PastDoctorAdventures novel ''The Indestructible Man'' by Simon Messingham is a deconstruction of Gerry Anderson's work, including ''{{UFO}}''. The bridge bunnies of SILHOET (an expy of SHADO) are the daughters of the rich and powerful -- women who'd normally be models, actresses or trophy wives, but as much of Earth is a dystopia, SILHOET gives them a secure position in an influential organisation to curry favour with their parents.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission'', you don't start with a base, so one chapter is spent taking someone else's base. When you find that it doesn't come with a Bridge Bunny, the next chapter is spent doing the most logical thing - taking someone else's.
** ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man X}}8'' brought in Layer and Palette as the new bridge bunnies to accompany Alia, who has been in the series since ''X5''.
* The Resistance Base has a pair in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero''; the Guardians' airship base has a full trio in ''VideoGame/MegaManZX''.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'':
** Rio Mei Long and Eita Nadaka for the Hagane and Eun Hyojin for the Hiryu Kai. Rio becomes a pilot early on, and Eita gets a de-facto promotion to second-in-command after [[spoiler: Daitetsu's death in ''Original Generation 2''.]] [[DemotedToExtra Poor Eun never gets any spotlight.]]
** Bit of trivia, while most nameless human character (like {{Mook}} and RedShirt) either have their eyes cover with a gear or shade. Nameless Bridge Bunnies are given proper portrait similar to named character. [[UpdatedRerelease Super Robot Wars Original Generations]] given proper portrait to all characters, yet the Bridge Bunnies still get special treatment for there are portraits of two different Bridge Bunnies.
** The other Original battleship, ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'''s ''Valstork'', has Shihomi and Akane Ardygun, and the male Horris Horaian. TheCaptain in this case happens to be the girls' father. [[spoiler: Shihomi later graduates to Captain after her dad gets tossed far ''far'' into the past.]]
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' gives your character a collection of Bridge Officers who crew the various stations on the ship. Naturally some players choose to make them Bridge Bunnies. Just like in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paLanXn6m94 this video]] Of course gender equality applies so it's equally possible for a female character to have a collection of male Bridge Bunnies.
* The ''[[VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} Trilogy]]'' gives us Mary and Shelly Godwin, made even better since every third phrase out of their mouth is "Little Master". Or, in Mary's case in the first game, "Little Maz-da."
* The prologue of ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' features a cluster of Bridge Bunnies with exotic hair colors shouting about a vaguely-defined catastrophe.
* Orbulon in ''[[VideoGame/WarioWare WarioWare: Twisted!]]''. It plays the trope as to have ''literal'' Bridge bunnies, (Though they were space bunnies)
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': Shepard's yeoman Kelly Chambers is a Bridge Bunny. She is a [[BiTheWay Bisexual]] [[ExtremeOmnisexual omnisexual]] [[SignificantGreeneyedRedhead greeneyed redhead]]. Her secondary duty is as the crew's psychological counselor, and as she puts it, a little passion makes people open up to you.
** It is confirmed in ''3'' that Cerberus put Chambers there specifically for Shepard to hit on (she's a possible love interest an can be romanced even if you're with someone else, but won't trigger the "Paramour" achievement), and to keep Shepard and the rest of the crew under control. In other words, to be the perfect Bridge Bunny. A ship the size of the Normandy wouldn't really have any clerical work that can't be done by computer, especially since the ship has an AI on board, and the Normandy Mark I had a conspicuous lack of yeomen/Shepard wranglers.
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has Samantha Traynor taking over Kelly Chamber's role and a lot more. Unlike Kelly Chambers, who served as Yeoman, Samantha Traynor is the Normandy's Communications Specialist and also manages the War Room's data together with EDI, who specifically requested her presence on the Normandy. Her role as the secretary that notifies Shepard of any new messages or incoming vid calls is only logical given her job as the ship's Comm Specialist, but it's not her ''main'' job aboard the Normandy.
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Shadows of Almia'', there are three ladies in the ranger headquarters who sit before a huge computer monitor on the top floor. They have to keep track of the rangers, they confirm quest completions, and other stuff.
* ''CommandAndConquer'': In ''Tiberian Sun'', Kodiak and Montauk were commanded by McNeil and Slavik (both male) respectively. But both had one male and one female as their supporting officers. The game split the difference: In Kodiak, Chandra had the speaking roles and in Montauk, it was Oxanna.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* In ''SluggyFreelance'' Zoe and Gwynn take on this role during the "Stick Figures in Space" arcs.
* ''Webcomic/{{Subnormality}}'' - "I did [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page493.html establish]] a 50-trillion dollar interstellar fleet of exploration for solely the purpose of viewing thousands of female cadets in jumpsuits of a tightly-fitting nature! And I did personally design those jumpsuits, and your Honor they did hug and cling as as though a koala in a windstorm! And I did leer! How I did leer! Never have you seen such leerings!"
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' - Tedd decides not to play VideoGame/StarTrekOnline since he can't have a crew of [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2010-02-05 bridge squirrels]].
* ''{{Outsider}}'' - The bridges of Loroi warships are populated entirely by attractive female elvish-looking individuals, but that's largely because male Loroi are rather less common than female ones and to place them in danger would be a little wasteful. The whole of their military would seem to be female.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperheroes'' animated series, Triplicate Girl serves as a three-person Bridge Bunny team.
* L'Etranger from ''MaxSteel'' has his submarine, the Akina, staffed solely by female SIRENS in full-body (yet form-fitting) armor and helmets.
* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', the Fireside Girls sometimes become this when they have to help pilot inventions.
