For the life of me I cannot understand why she was not selected for more high profile movies. She is a wonderful actor, has a great body, beautiful face and fun. I know she was in some grade B movies but she deserved some big rolls.
I agree that she's pretty good (as Polly at least; haven't seen her in anything else), but hot, pretty good actresses are a dime a dozen in Hollywood, and I can see many producers being wary of casting "that Star Trek sex object" in a prominent role (of which there are rather few for women overall) due to cultural baggage.

Unfortunate, perhaps, but agreeing to be on ENT probably doomed any chances of A-list stardom on her part. Still, it was more than most get.
She does have a unique charm about her.

It's a damn shame she hasn't been in more films, she's certainly more skilled (and prettier) than some of the other more famous actresses out there.

Oh and if anybody is wondering, she also has a big part in Starship Troopers 3.

Jolene was fun to watch in "Starship Troopers 3". The only other nice thing that I can say about 3 was it was better than "Starship Troopers 2". Not by much.

"Starship Troopers 2" was god awful. At least Starship Troopers 3 had y'know...a plot lol.

It would be nice to see her in more stuff though. I'd love to see her do a T'pol cameo somewhere...ah wishful thinking.

Re: All about T'Pol

Now that we indulged our senses of smell and taste, delighted our ears and mind with our lovely Vulcanesse's ability to tell a "story" one question remains:

What is your favorite T'Pol outfit? And no to stop you guys right in your tracks: nude is not an outfit

Mine has to be the yellow blouse ensemble T'Mir wears in Carbon Creek.

I've always been stuck trying to decide between her white away outfit and her red uniform.

Hard to top her white jumpsuit.



Or the blue nightclothes.



Although the red ones aren't bad either.



I like all of her Season 3 & 4 jumpsuits, because they are so much more flattering than her Season 1 & 2 look. If you look closely, each one has different detailing.



My favorite is the purple, with the white a close second.

Thanks for the pic in the blue pajamas. I think they would have looked alot better as shorts.

I don't know I kinda like the pants, gives her a more dignified look. I you want her in shorts why not have her in her underwear? (Also a very nice outfit.)

The lady looks good in whatever she's wearing.

Re: All about T'Pol

I wish they'd stop trying to sex up Star Trek. It's demeaning to women, and Gene Roddenberry's original vision for the future. I expect women in a service to dress the same as men, with uniforms that do not emphasize whatever feminine features the actresses might possess. A utopian vision of the future should aspire to an androgynous dress code.

I liked Enterprise in spite of T'Pol's attire.

Did you ever actually see TOS? There were short skirts, skimpy outfits, cleavage, sexual innuendo, make out sessions with green chicks...in skimpy outfits. Kirk was portrayed as the consumate womanizer and the women he womanized with were only to willing. All of the sequels and spinoffs have simply kept up the tradition that started with Gene's original vision.

Viewed from today's standpoint TOS probably seems tame and even somewhat "chaste", however, back in the mid 60's when it premiered this was some pretty racy stuff and that is what it was meant to look like.

Re: All about T'Pol

Yes, I know the women were overtly sexualized in the Original Series. However, if I'm not mistaken, the outfits were a concession to the network, and in the original pilot (The Cage), the women were dressed in pants that were the same as those worn by the men. Gene Roddenberry had no choice but to "sex up" the women if he wanted his series aired. Even still, by the standards of the time, the Original Series was quite groundbreaking in its treatment of women (Uhura on the bridge, for instance), and in the movies the women wore the same uniforms as men.

He aspired to a world of gender equality, and later incarnations of the franchise should have taken that further and made good on the ability to do what he could not, instead of selectively confining themselves to the boundaries set by 60's network executives whenever convenient.

Re: All about T'Pol

I believe we see far more male shirts off in ENT than we see any T'Pol flesh.

As to sexing things up.. Trek needs to be sexed up, but REAL sex/relationships, not just T&A.
