All that Syrio Forel had taught her went racing through her head. Swift as a deer. Quiet as shadow. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Quick as a snake. Calm as still water. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Strong as a bear. Fierce as a wolverine. Fear cuts deeper than swords. The man who fears losing has already lost. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Fear cuts deeper than swords…

There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?
Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?
Since klingon sex is basically violent wrestling, I wonder if the klingons don’t have BDSM but like the opposite. Klingons gathering in secrecy in dark cellars to engage in sweet, gentle loving, to the scorn of fellow klingons.
"How can you do that?" the other klingons ask. "You don’t even draw blood? Not a single furniture breaking? It doesn’t seem… natural".
"What is this… cuddle, you speak of?"
Fifty Shades of QamuSHa’
In light of this week’s character post, I thought it was only right for us to further our discussion of T’Pol by looking at her very extensive wardrobe, with a focus on her uniforms in particular.
But until I started doing research along those lines, I didn’t realise how widely varied the Vulcan wardrobe was.
I had planned to talk about the features I remembered as being part of ‘traditional Vulcan garb’, you know -
The billowing long sleeves,
floor length robes,
decorative Vulcan script,
and ridiculous headgear.
As well as the elaborate hairstyles,
and headbands that women often wore.
But as I gathered up screencaps, I realised that the outfits Vulcans wore weren’t quite so uniform in their features.
For one thing they’re a lot more colourful than I remember.
And like to emphasise the shoulders a lot more than I thought they did.
Nevertheless, I can’t help but feel that T’Pol’s wardrobe is decidedly un-Vulcan.
In Seasons 1 and 2, while on duty she wears a… how do we even describe it? Grey and white patterned catsuit, is the term that comes to mind. Like Seven of Nine’s outfits, this is extremely form fitting and, in some of these promo pictures especially, reveal T’Pol’s Barbie doll-like proportions.
Seriously, how can you even have a waist that narrow?
In Seasons 3 and 4, she ditches this uniform, in favour of a variety of brightly coloured catsuits all of a similar style -
All made of either shiny
or velvety fabric,
with strange ribbed textured pieces down her sides
and the insides of her arms.
With a raised collar
and shoulder segments of a different colour,
as well as a colour coordinated belt.
The thing that strikes me the most about these is that the shoulder segments remind me of the suits in Futurama, and therefore I can’t help but find them slightly ridiculous.
While off duty, T’Pol alternates between long sleeved, tunic like tops and comfortable pants, something I could potentially see a Vulcan wearing.
But she also wears silky short sleeved shirts with matching three-quarter pants that barely cover her at all, which I have more trouble accepting as something a Vulcan would ever wear. Especially on a presumably cold Earth ship.
In Season 4 we also get to see a wider variety of her off-duty clothing, particularly in the episode ‘Home’ when she returns to Vulcan.
This is also the episode in which we see her Vulcan wedding dress.
The only two times we see her wearing something I’d consider more traditionally Vulcan is during a flashback in the episode ‘Fusion’, showing her visiting a jazz bar while living on Earth.
And wearing traditional Vulcan robes while mourning the loss of her baby in ‘Terra Prime’.
All in all, I have to say, T’Pol is one super stylish Vulcan. While part of me wants to condemn her for the same reasons I look down about the catsuits of Deanna Troi and Seven of Nine, I have to admit, her outfits do look pretty snazzy.
That said, catsuits - as usual - have no place on the Bridge, or anywhere else on the ship for that matter. And I am truly baffled as to why she needs so many of them. If the rest of the crew can get by with just one uniform, why can’t she? And why on earth - or Vulcan - wouldn’t she be wearing a similarly practical outfit?
Maybe a robe and long sleeves wouldn’t be practical on a starship or during away missions, but surely some sort of tunic (perhaps with billowy sleeves that were wrapped at the forearm, to keep them out of the way) and pants combo would be much more logical, especially in the presumably cold environment of an Earth starship.
It just seems to me that a Vulcan would take one look at those outfits and come to the obvious conclusion that catsuits are illogical.
But it’s not just her wardrobe which I find noteworthy. I think its also important to point out T’Pol’s changing hairstyle. Luckily, there was already a section on Memory Alpha about it -
Even though T’Pol’s short wig at the beginning of Enterprise seemed like a logical precursor to Spock’s haircut in the original series (with somewhat irregular bangs that echoed Spock’s rigidly straight bangs), further transformations in the hairstyle took place during the run of Enterprise. “[The producers] wanted a look that was a little bit softer compared to previous Vulcans," recalled Michael Moore. "The second year, we tried to make it even softer.”
From the start of the third season onwards, T’Pol’s previously blockier and dark-brown hairstyle started to be toned with lighter-color highlights and became less puffy at the top. Shortly before production on the series’ fourth season began, Moore declared, “I’m hoping that in the new year, we can soften her [hairstyle] even more. The humans tend to have an effect on her. She’s becoming a product of her environment, even though Vulcans aren’t supposed to do that. So, I’m hoping we can reflect that in her hair a little bit. But we still can’t go too far from being Vulcan." (Star Trek: Communicator issue 152, pp. 30-31)
What I find most interesting about this is my own reaction to the changes. Because, to be perfectly honest, I hated T’Pol’s hair in the first season. It was too puffy and the rounded fringe was just odd after seeing so many Vulcans with perfectly straight fringes. As far as I’m concerned, her hair improved immensely as the shown went on, and I liked the style she had in the later seasons.
But reading the above quote made me stop and realise that they were right, her hair does look more aesthetically pleasing to Humans as she becomes more influenced by them. And I’m not sure how to feel about that.
What seems apparent to me is that much of T’Pol’s character, including her hair and clothing, deviates from what we’ve come to expect from Vulcans. As to whether that’s a good thing, or a bad thing, I’m really not sure.
I object to her being put in yet another catsuit, and in skimpy outfits, because it just seems completely illogical - and of course, the only reason they did it is so they could meet their attractive woman quota and keep their ratings up (which, given that the show was cancelled, backfired completely). But can I condemn all of T’Pol’s outfits? Or the influence the Human crew of Enterprise had on her after years with them? I’m not sure that I can.
So I’m genuinely curious, what did you think of T’Pol’s wardrobe?
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.
