Re: Trip & T'Pol Appreciation Society, 2010 Edition

I was referring to physical attraction. With T'Pol being a prime specimen of sound body and mind and perfectly defined ears the human engineer was more bland with yellow hair and undefined ears. The human adage of "opposites attract" comes to mind.

BINGO! Opposites attract is what makes TnT OTP!

Re: Trip & T'Pol Appreciation Society, 2010 Edition

I wouldn't necessarily call them opposites, as they share some key traits--both are intelligent, both can be pretty stubborn, both have a hard time telling the other what they really want from each other, etc. Sure, physically they're opposites, but in the ways that matter, I'd describe them as complimentary, not opposites.

I guess you could say that... But I wouldn't say they're complete opposites physically... Vulcans and Humans share like, 90% of common physical characteristics. Vulcans are virtually identical to us neck down (though we can't be sure about their reproductive organs, and I always imagined their female genitals to be mostly green ).

Height: One is tall, one is short
Hair: One is light, one is dark
Eyes: One is light, one is dark
Complexion: One is fair with a pink hue, one is kinda bronzed with a greenish hue

Yes, if we're talking DNA and basic physiology, humans and Vulcans are similar. But I'm speaking of the things that contribute to physical attraction. i don't know about you, but I haven't asked a guy for a genetic profile or an X-ray before I'd go out with him yet...

Neither have I, but then again, I rarely even date girls, let alone guys (my GF wouldn't like that)...

"E^2" was on HRT today... Didn't like it much this time around either... Even though it's an essential TnT episode and all... It's just... Lorian doesn't strike me as T'Pol's sone AT ALL. What ever.

they have a good friction and chemistry together. largely credited with the writers and acting ability of Conner and Jolene. They played well off of each other. Delivery of lines, body language, etc. enjoyable to watch those two.

Re: Trip & T'Pol Appreciation Society, 2010 Edition

Ah.... "Home".... The episode that made me a TnTer. I had only come back to ENT at "Countdown" (having given up on the show after a the first few episodes of the first season). I normally don't care much about who hooks up with who, especially on a sci-fi show. I watch for the cool geeky stuff and the action/adventure.

But "Home"... made me fall in love with the idea of Trip and T'Pol together. This is the only television show couple I've ever 'shipped for.

*sigh*

I - Surak - found seeing T'Pol in traditional Vulcan attire most pleasing.
Then again my human host also prefers her in and out of her catsuit.

Wow, It's great to find site like this one, when you are still mourning these are the voyages... I really really wish I've never seen it! But as the rest of the true Enterprise fans, I also decided to consider terra prime as the last episode.
I like all pictures, great job for putting it all together!

Wow, a fellow shipper from Mostar!

Wait, did I just label myself a shipper?

Ah well, I must be getting old or something

AMQ, dobro nam došla, svidjet će ti se forum. Nadam se da ćeš posjetiti i forum iz mog siga, ako već nisi.
