Sally Solomon is a humanoid extraterrestrial and one of the main characters featured on the 1996-2001 NBC comedy series 3rd Rock from the Sun. She is played by actress Kristen Johnston and was introduced in the series' pilot episode, "Brains and Eggs". Like all of the credited cast members from the series, Sally Solomon appeared in all 139 episodes of the show.
Sally Solomon, true name unknown, is a member of an unspecified alien race from another star system. She served under the High Commander of an exploratory team sent to Earth to learn about it's people and customs. As the First Officer of the expedition, it was Sally's job to enforce the edicts of the team's High Commander, Dick Solomon.
Upon landing on Earth, Sally and the others assumed human appearances and took on the guise of a middle-American suburban family bearing the surname Solomon. With no true understanding of the distinction between genders, the First Officer, a male by birth, assumed the form of a human female and took the name Sally, younger "sister" to Dick Solomon, who retained his authority over the others and took on the role of family patriarch. The crew's Communications Officer assumed the role of Sally's inept brother, Harry Solomon, while the elder Science Officer experienced age-regression as he took on the guise of adolescent nephew, Tommy Solomon.
Sally Solomon is perpetually engulfed in warring personalities stemming from her pre-Earth position as a militant alien with male dominant characteristics and the hormonal changes she endures after being cast into a human female body. Like the rest of her family, Sally has difficulty understanding accepted customs of Earth humans, particularly how they pertain to the societal expectations of gender. She can be acerbic, sometimes even violent, and prone to fits of anger. In other instances, she demonstrates character traits stereotypical of an Earth female, which includes intense emotional outbursts.
