7 Surprising Facts About STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE T'Pol Costume - The Geek Twins
Thanks for not including the Abomination. On 12 September at It's quite obvious that Trip and T'pol really ended up together in the RU. Trip and T'pol had to keep their relationship a secret after what happened to them in Terra Prime and when Enterprise was going to be decommisioned after six years, Trip and T'pol discovered they were pregnant and knew this was going to be a huge problem on Earth.
Trip had to fake his death and found exile in a planet, which was new to space exploration, where his Warp expertise is gravely needed and T'pol together with Dr. Phlox to monitor and study the pregnancy just followed him soon after the Federation was signed. Yes, that's what happened, and I'm sticking to that story! They soooooo would have stayed together despite the ridiculous finale they tried to shove down our throats.
On 13 September at Oh, I'm in tears all over again. Thanks for a beautiful recap of the truest 'ship in the Trekverse. If only it didn't have the stinking cloud of TATV hanging over it. Great decision not to include TATV. It wasn't cannon; it was just a dream that Stupid, Fat Riker had after a night out with a dozen pizzas and a case of Lucky Lager.
On 14 September at Thank you for that lovely recap. Sigh, I miss the show!!! I want Enterprise back! Nice way to conclude.
Did you mention TATV? What does not exist, does not exist! On 15 September at Glad you didn't conclude that episode which must not be named. It doesn't deserve to exist! On 16 September at I'm such a sap. By the end of this I was on the verge of tears Once again, you guys did an excellent job with the guide. One my favorite parts was the, "Meanwhile, in the Mirror Unvierse".
That was a great segue. There were a couple of things that weren't included, that I would have liked to see. There was their argument and ready room conversation in Storm Front where they discussed what they wanted to do when they got back home. The rest of it though. On 17 September at I like BabyEnterprise's synopsis. I'm sticking to that story, too! D On 19 September at Enterprise is really gone. Look these damm Holodeck of the Galaxy-Classships make some mistakes before.
Look as Jordi wanna creat a Lea Brahms!! In the latter example there is a clear indication that T'Pol enjoyed taking part in this sort of deception. On several occasions during her first two years aboard the Enterprise, T'Pol resisted efforts by her family and the Vulcan High Command to get her to leave the ship and return to her Vulcan obligations.
When pressed for a reason by Vulcan Ambassador SovalT'Pol replied that she found working aboard the Enterprise "gratifying", for which she was chided for engaging in an emotional indulgence. Inafter being ordered to leave the Enterprise and return to Vulcan, T'Pol resigned her commission with the Vulcan High Command in order to accompany the crew of the Enterprise into the Delphic Expanse to find the Xindi, a mysterious race accused of killing seven million humans on Earth. Despite being technically a civilian, she remained as first officer of the Enterprise and the crew continued to refer to her by her High Command rank of Sub-Commander during the mission.

- Trip Tucker
- What's the status of T'pol and Trip's relationship
While investigating the Vulcan ship Seleya " Impulse "which had become trapped in The Expanse, T'Pol experienced the side effects of Trellium-Da compound the ship had used to protect itself from anomalies within The Expanse, but which had the side effect of creating psychosis in Vulcans.
T'Pol's brief exposure led to her experiencing extreme paranoia and losing control of her emotions. She recovered upon returning to the Enterprise. The compound, which Commander Tucker brought aboard, was necessary to line the ship so that the Enterprise could traverse the Expanse. Captain Archer, rather than line the ship with the concoction lethal to T'Polstored it in a locker in the cargo bay.
T'Pol, however, found herself wanting to experience more of the emotions the Trellium-D had unlocked. She discovered how to liquefy small, safe amounts of the compound and began to secretly inject herself with it, beginning approximately three months prior to the Enterprise's arriving at Azati Prime " Azati Prime ".
This led to what she felt was improved relations with her crew mates, in particular chief engineer Trip Tucker, which led to a sexual relationship in " Harbinger " where she experienced jealousy when Tucker began making romantic overtures toward a MACO on board. In the same episode, she referred to it as an exploration of human sexuality. However, this one-time encounter resulted in the formation of a psychic bond between Trip and T'Pol which doesn't manifest until the second half of Season 4. Over time, as T'Pol became addicted to the Trellium-D injections, her emotions began to flow more freely.
This came to a head when the Enterprise reached Azati Prime "Azati Prime" and Jonathan Archer chose to undertake a suicide mission in order to complete the Xindi mission. T'Pol's emotional reaction toward Archer's departure and presumed death incapacitated her as a commanding officer ending up in crying and an attempt to recover him. She attempted to hide her condition, and the Enterprise was nearly destroyed in a subsequent Xindi attack which may or may not have been made worse by T'Pol's state.
After the attack, T'Pol's supply of Trellium-D became difficult to reach being located in a heavily damaged part of the ship and she nearly died during a clandestine attempt to retrieve it.
Soon after, she lost her temper with Archer who had since returned to the Enterprise. He indicated he needed her for a difficult and morally questionable mission. She was nearly killed while trying to recover more Trellium-D after experiencing an erotic dream involving Tucker. This led her to seek medical help from Dr. Phlox to whom she confessed her addiction.
Although T'Pol subsequently overcame her addiction, Phlox determined that she had permanently damaged her brain, and as a result might never achieve the same level of emotional control she once had. The older version of T'Pol served aboard an alternate time line version of the Enterprise, which had been transported into the past. Aboard the alternate Enterprise, T'Pol and Trip Tucker had married and conceived a son, Lorian, who at the time of the encounter was the captain of the alternate Enterprise.
The older T'Pol advised her that Trip Tucker could provide a safe outlet for her newfound emotions if she could learn to trust him. She also advised her younger self that she could not imagine what her life would have been like without him. Following the Xindi mission, she continued to experience difficulty controlling her emotions and became particularly emotional following the death of her mother as seen in the episodes " Awakening " and "Kir'Shara".
T'Pol, who at the time held the record for the longest time spent by a Vulcan serving with humans, has demonstrated her ability to adapt. Originally, she required a form of medication in order to tolerate the odors given off by humans and Captain Archer's pet dog Porthos because of Vulcans having a sensitive sense of smell. It's revealed that she has a sense of humor, one she can demonstrate as she has in "Future Tense" and other shows, including " Bound ".
And, in a case of "when in Rome, do as the Romans do," she has also begun eating some types of foods fruit, popcorn with her hands, breaking a long-standing Vulcan taboo in the process. Following the death of her mother see belowthe divorce of her husband Koss and the discovery of the Kir'Shara, T'Pol began to re-evaluate Surak 's teachings and what it means to be Vulcan.
As a result, she began to distance herself from some of her crew mates, choosing to spend her free time studying the newly found word of Surak.
Her decision had an adverse effect on her relationship with Commander Tucker. In "Bound", however, she re-established her romantic relationship with Trip. T'Pol asked Trip to return to the Enterprise and, when he replied that he "would think about it" she showed her emotional commitment by pursuing him down the corridor and kissing him.
T'Pol - Wikipedia
She has also experienced some success in controlling her emotions to a greater degree than she had over the two years. T'Pau's therapeutic mind-meld cured the Pa'nar Syndrome and may have helped restore some of her emotional balance as well. This, combined with the fact that T'Pol no longer has the added stress of living with an incurable, potentially fatal condition, may have calmed her mind sufficiently to maintain control.
Despite this, she has admitted to Phlox that she had never before felt so unsure of herself. Initially, the two had a somewhat combative association. During the third season of Enterprise, while the ship was engaged in pursuing the Xindi weapon in the Expanse, T'Pol and Tucker became increasingly intimate. This process began because Trip had trouble sleeping due to his sister's death when the Xindi first attacked Earth with a prototype of the Xindi weapon.
Phlox urged T'Pol to assist Trip by using Vulcan neuropressure, a system of massage that T'Pol referred to as "intimate" and which is frequently conducted in a semi-clothed state. A few episodes after this, starting in " Impulse ", T'Pol begins to take Trellium-Dwhich has the result of lowering her barriers and producing greater emotion.
T'Pol begins to display signs of jealousy regarding Trip's activities with another woman aboard the Enterprise and, ultimately, she and Trip have sex. Afterward, T'Pol attempts to distance herself from the act by referring to it as an exploration of human sexuality. After they engage in sex in "Harbinger", they do not engage in the act again in season 3. It creates an awkward situation but further illuminates their relationship. In " Zero Hour ", T'Pol reveals her age to him, which she indicated Vulcans consider "intimate" information.
At the end of the Xindi mission, when Trip tells her he has no home left to go to, T'Pol invites him to accompany her home to Vulcan. After arriving on Vulcan, T'Pol is blackmailed into marrying her original betrothed, Kossin order to save her mother's career. Her mother, T'Les, realizes Trip is in love with her daughter and suggests to him he should express his feelings to T'Pol before the ceremony so that she could have all available information. Trip declines, saying that she is under enough stress and he cares about her too much to make things even more difficult for her.
However, T'Pol was not unaware of his feelings. She paused on her way to marry Koss long enough to give Trip a kiss on the cheek, a scandalous public display of affection for a Vulcan, especially in those circumstances. Following the discovery of the Kir'Shara in season four, T'Pol's husband divorces her and Trip attempts to reconnect their relationship.
7 Surprising Facts About STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE T'Pol Costume
T'Pol is studying the original teachings of Surak, and disregards that request. Hurt, Trip decides to make a new start and transfers to Enterprise's sister ship NX Columbia, then working up prior to being commissioned. While he is away on Columbia, both he and T'Pol experience telepathic contact in the form of both waking daydreams as well as dreams while sleeping.
An emergency requires Trip to return to the Enterprise.
While he is aboard an attempted takeover by Orions reveals that Trip is the only human aboard who is immune to the pheromones emitted by the Orion women, which proves to T'Pol they have bonded. An undetermined amount of time after the two learn of their bond, their relationship undergoes a major shock during the Terra Prime episodes when Trip and T'Pol learn that they have a child.
The baby was created using stolen DNA samples of the two by a terrorist group headed by a radical separatist, Paxton, who believed Earth should distance itself and defend itself from alien worlds and influences. The baby, a girl, was named Elizabeth after Trip's sister who was killed in the Xindi attack on Earth.
As stated by Phlox, the child has Trip's eyes and T'Pol's ears. Elizabeth does not survive due to a flawed procedure during the cloning process. Trip revealed this to T'Pol when he went to her quarters to try to console her. He further indicated that according to Phlox, a different cloning process performed by gene surgeons who were more highly skilled than those employed by Terra Prime would probably result in a viable child.
The two grieved together for Elizabeth, whom they had accepted as theirs. Relationship with Jonathan Archer[ edit ] When T'Pol first reported to duty aboard the Enterprise, Archer resented her assignment due to his distrust of Vulcans and the fact that the Vulcans had refused to provide starcharts and a copy of the Vulcan database unless T'Pol was assigned to the crew.
T'Pol would butt heads with Archer about his style of command during the ship's early missions, chastising him for taking chances just to be able to explore new planets. As time passed, T'Pol proved to be a valuable asset to Archer due to her time in space and her past experiences as an officer with command experience.
Indeed, her command experience is what secured her position as First Officer. As Enterprise's mission progressed, T'Pol grew very close to Captain Jonathan Archer whose abilities she had come to respect and to whom she had developed a sense of loyalty after he assisted her in bringing to justice a renegade Vulcan Security agent. Her sense of loyalty went so far as to compel her to resign her position with Vulcan High Command and join Enterprise without a commission from either Starfleet or the Vulcans during her mission in the Delphic Expanse.
After the Delphic Expanse mission, T'Pol opted to remain with Starfleet and with Archer's assistance; bypassed Starfleet training, was directly commissioned with the rank of Commander, and was formally assigned as Archer's First Officer. On the occasions when Archer was thought killed, T'Pol showed her affection for him to the point of crying during the Xindi mission when she believes he has been killed in " Azati Prime ".
She also grieves in "Zero Hour", when she believes he is dead, by holding close a book of his and pets his dog, Porthos whose smell, as mentioned above, she originally could not stand. In one alternate timeline depicted in " Twilight "T'Pol devoted her life to caring for Archer when parasites robbed him of the ability to store long term memory the same ones with which he was infected while saving her life. It was later implied by Dr.
Phlox that T'Pol had fallen in love with Archer during the time that she took care of him. Starfleet service[ edit ] Near the end of the Xindi mission, T'Pol revealed to Archer and Tucker that she was considering enlisting in Starfleet. Following the Xindi mission, she accepted the commission and received the rank of Commander.
In MayT'Pol officially assumed duties as a Starfleet officer. However, as she does not wear a standard Starfleet uniform, it is suggested that her relationship with the organization is a unique one. There is precedent for a Starfleet officer not to wear a regulation uniform, however:Trip and T'Pol neuro-pressure
