Discussion in 'Star Trek: Enterprise' started by The Illusive Man, Sep 11, 2012.
Trip: I'm still a little fuzzy on why they threatened to call it off in the first place.
T'Pol: The ceremony was supposed to take place next week. When I decided to remain on Enterprise I requested a postponement. Koss's parents were insulted that I would put off our plans to serve on a human vessel.
TUCKER: Well, Vanik can take you home. Why don't you go marry Koss, then come back?
T'Pol: It's customary for a husband and wife to reside together for at least one Vulcan year.
TUCKER: Maybe he can come to Enterprise.
T'Pol: He's an architect. It would be illogical for him to live aboard a starship.
TUCKER: This whole thing sounds illogical.
T'POL: Your advice, Commander.
Trip: What do you want to do?
T'POL: That is irrelevant.
TRIP: No, it's not. It's very relevant. Do you want to go back and marry this guy; spend a year with him, ten years, a hundred years, or do you want to stay on Enterprise?
T'Pol: I have an obligation.
TUCKER: You've got an obligation to yourself. You've spent the last year around humans. If there's one thing you should have learned it's that we're free to make our own decisions. There's a lot to be said for personal choice.
T'Pol: If you'd spent the last year on Vulcan, you would have learned that our commitment to tradition outweighs personal choice.
TUCKER: I respect your customs, but this marriage was arranged when you were a kid. A lot's happened since then. People change.
T'Pol: Vulcan's don't.
T'Pol: My obligation is to my culture, my heritage. It has to take precedence.
TRIP: Sounds to me like you already made up your mind. Why the hell did you ask me here?
