Re: All about T'Pol

I liked T'Pol and Seven not being in SF uniforms. It irks me that everyone needs to join the fleet. I prefer having some folks who sit outside the ranks visually. And they do it so very well.

No argument on your last point.

Re: All about T'Pol

How could they even be in uniforms when they are not Starfleet? I would imagine Starfleet is pretty precious about who gets to wear the uniforms. If you were going to stick 7 in a Starfleet uniform you might as well have stuck Neelix in one. If you were going to stick T'Pol in a Starfleet uniform you might as well have stuck Phlox in one.

Interesting of course that neither Phlox nor Neelix wore catsuits.

I think of Seven of Nine as Starfleet - at least as 'Starfleet' as many of the Maquis. She was certainly a serving part of the crew, and not - as with T'Pol - seconded from an allied fleet.

As for Neelix, sure: put him in one too. He can have Harry's uniform after he's thrown out of an airlock.

T'Pol had some great outfits but then there was the orange velour number. Terrible. What were they thinking.

T'Pol was given a United Earth Starfleet commission in ENT Season Four; she was a United Earth Starfleet officer that season, the same as Archer or Trip.

Re: All about T'Pol

Notice how eye makeup, lips and catsuit match. She would not have it any other way.

Re: All about T'Pol


Very different to the T'Pol of S1. But not much point in a drama where a protagonist doesn't grow or change.

Re: All about T'Pol

Hmm, nice T'Pol pics. I have to say I never was bothered by T'Pol not being in a Starfleet uniform as that was not her character. It just would not make sense, but then again, did the catsuit ever make sense? But I digress....

Re: All about T'Pol

Precisely. But in two episodes which played in the respectively a future, These Are the Voyages and Twilight, she wore one, implying that her let's call it transition phase (being a Starfleet officer while still feeling like a member of the High Command) does not last forever.

Re: All about T'Pol

I loved Tpol. Carbon creek was a fine Trek episode, regardless of series or year.

And if I may be crass, and please forgive me, but those are the only Vulcan thighs I wanted to wear as head phones.
