Re: Joel Revisits TOS....
There is a changed premise here, between Vina-as-Orion-Slave-Girl and all Orion women seen since. When Vina confronts Pike after the wall seals up, she towers over him, perhaps 6'6", or even 7 feet tall. All Orion women seen since have matched the human female proportions.
I've never had the impression that Vina in her Orion guise "towers over" Pike. She looks taller in that shot because she's in the foreground. It's called "perspective."
