    Or, perhaps, simply misunderstand the argument? "I don't regard those women as Orion" does seem a rather definite statement, even if it's not exactly the same as saying "They must not be Orions.".

    True, and thanks for being the voice of reason. I should make it clear: I know they are supposed to be Orion and expect the vast majority of fans to see them as such. I'm just throwing out a friendly--and, I hoped, fun--dissenting view. And, like I said, I see no reason why many Trek humanoids can't have green skin, just as the range of human skin tones is reflected in Bajorans, Vulcans, Klingons etc.

    What relevance is their religion?

    Were these Muslims Americans, British, French, Canadian or so on?

    Or is this the tiresome confusion that "Muslim" is a racial term encompassing people from certain countries in the Middle East?

    She appears in A Choice of Futures, which I just read. Had no idea/forgotten she was the Orion in "The Time Trap" Though I thought she might be a previously encountered character.
