    I could have sworn she said she was uncomfortable running around the set in her underwear with an almost all-male crew watching...

    No I definately read an article somewhere where she praised Roxanne on how she managed to make T'Pol dignifed during that Pon Farr episode and how she thought it turned out quite well.
    I was really surprised considering how she was vocal in her dislike on the Season 3 neuropressure, saying they focused on T'Pols sexuality too much. Too me, the neuropressure was just as much an exploitation as Archer's wet dream and her Pon Farr episode. :wtf:

    I dunno, maybe the Pon Farr thing wasn't quite as big a deal for her since Pon Farr was already a major, established facet of the Vulcan character? ::shrug::

    I think someone needs to dig up that interview, because I could swear I read somewhere that Bounty was her least favorite episode.

    I'm remembering the bit about running through the hallways or something. Is it in the Season 2 recap on the DVDs maybe?

    I just skimmed the profile and didn't run into it. Maybe I just need to watch it all the way through. I could have skipped it.

    i havent watched the profile since getting the dvds (yup, 2005), but i could have sworn she said she was uncomfortable doing the scene where she runs through the ship in her underwear.

    Odd. If it wasn't there, i can't imagine where i saw it.

    I think it was in one of the profiles with Roxanne Dawson or one of the interviews about her directing. I'm going to look through some of my magazines and see if I can see it.

    ^^There's a feature on Roxann Dawson as director on the S3 DVD's, but I don't remember whether "Bounty" is mentioned. If I have a chance, I'll take a quick look later today.

    Jolene does talk about "Bounty" on the S2 DVD's, but it's in the Enterprise Moments feature. She mentions that her initial thoughts were something like "Oh great, I get to be naked," and "Oh great, we're back in the decon," and comments on how when you're working with 100 men, your modesty and dignity are always an issue. But then she says that you throw that all out because you're like a family....

    She also talks about how it's hard to make a project like that (when you're a curvy female running around scantily clad and basically "in heat") come across in a real and desperate way -- how you don't want to give it a weakness but instead come out with a strength. She says it was touchy doing that, but in the end, she thought it worked and came across successfully. And she credits John B. with making that possible becuase he's such a brilliant actor and was able to give a sense of humor to the scenario.

    Edited for clarity

    Another of my short stories was posted today called "The Letter". As you might get from the title it's in the same vein as the other letter fics people have been doing fot TGTMD, though it does have a different tone. ;)

    With Season 3 airing on Sci-Fi now, I dug out the lovely Season 3 collection of screencaps kindly donated to me by Tery (some of you may remember her as Bluegirl555 from HoT a few years back), and I'm putting them up in their own folders along with my eclectic little screencaps collection. They made up the bulk of my S3 collection before I got my DVDs and started making my own. They're impressive in size (960 x 540) and quality, for having been made during the show's broadcast run.

    They're heavy on the T/T, so they'll probably offer more than Trekcore in that respect. If you can look past the li'l logo in the corner, there are some really pretty pictures there. First 6 episodes are up, and I hope to have the rest uploaded within a week or so.

    "The risk of paralysis is minimal." :lol:

    Thanks for sharing the caps. :) We had a nice amount of T/T moments last night. :thumbsup:

    I really, really need to get the Sci-Fi channel... :D

    I just love the moment with the peaches in Extinction. That's actually the only reason why I watch the episode... Oh, and the dialogue in the VNP scene of Rajin is priceless.

    ^^Yes, I like the peaches scene -- actually, I think it may be the high point of that episode.

    And after seeing "Raijin" again, I'm starting to think that overall, the "rumors" scene in that episode may be the best of the VNP moments. The acting, lighting, music, etc. are wonderfully done, and excluding the hands on the face at the start (and Trip's missing shirt), it actually seemed like T/T could've been engaged in meditation. Too bad the writers didn't choose that route. I may change my mind again when I see the "Similitude" VNP scene, but right now, I'm thinking that the "Raijin" scene rates a bit higher.

    HR, thanks for the additional caps. There're some lovely ones there, and I'll probably be looking to grab a few from your collection(s) for certain discussions if it's ok.

    As I was going through some of the T/T moments in Monday's episodes, I was reminded again of how many caps can be generated from just a two or three minute scene. :) I did make a few, though (with emphasis on expressions), so hopefully I can share those in the next day or two.

    Yes, please do! You already know I love it when anyone uses my caps; that's why they're there. :D And Tery told me more than once that it pleased her to know that others liked her caps and used them. I haven't had a chance to visit HoT for a bit, but she's probably still on the memberlist (as Bluegirl555) if anyone wants to drop her a thank-you PM.

    I have uploaded her caps all the way through "The Forgotten," BTW. Tons of good stuff.

    OMG, tell me about it! :lol: (It's fun, ain't it?)

    Looking forward to them. :)

    Hopeful Romantic I'm so glad you're posting Tery's screen caps . She had some really great Trip& T'Pol pictures from Similtulde, Damage and The Forgotten. Do you have them posted in your regular screencaps or a different part of your website? Monday had lots of wonderful moments with all the different scenes with Trip& T'Pol and I liked seeing acting as a gentle men when he gave her the paeaches and was worried about the rumors of them having a Romantic relationship I loveed T'Pol's line about it being no ones conecern but their own that was just idle gossip. :) :vulcan:
