She's fluent in five languages, she was married to David Bowie, and she's one of the most beautiful creatures whoever walked the Earth.

On this day in 1955, Iman was born.

And she went head to head with Captain Kirk in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). Honestly, we sort of wanted more of her and less of Shatner in this scene, but:

And! It was on this day in 2008 that The X-Files: I Want to Believe premiered in theaters. Here's the refreshing part: It's kind of a standalone thing. There aren't the aliens. Nothing was implanted in Scully's neck. But the two of them came rocketing back with their signature chemistry.

A mixed bag in Sci-fi History that continues tomorrow with Hart Hanson and Stanley Kubrick.
