Yes. But she was used for eye candy gar more than others, a lesson learned from 7of 9 to keep the make audience coming back for more.
And there is no questioning that she was far more curvy then any vulcan female shown before her.

I think it is obvious that Jolene was cast for her "appeal". She wore unnecessarily tight clothing and seemed extremely emotional for a full Vulcan. She also managed to lose her shirt more often than Kirk and did several extremely sensual "massage" scenes with Trip.
She was def the hot mama character.

The only thing that bothered me
about the sexploitation of Jolene
by this series, was that they did
it in such a clumsy and obvious way.

Like her dropping her drawers, after
she got jealous over that MACO chick
and started her affair with Trip. If
Jonathan Frakes had been in the director's
chair, I'm sure it would've been up to par ...

JOLENE IS BEAUTIFUL. I ESPECIALLY LIKE HER IN "A MIRROR DARKLY PART 2" SHE WAS HOT IN THAT 23RD CENTURY UNIFORM!

Television is a visual medium. All the actors on Enterprise were attractive, as they are on most TV shows. No one wants to tune in and see ugly people. If you want to see ugly people, go to Walmart.

That being said, YES, she is smoking hot, but she is also very good at what she did for the show, she was very convincing as a Vulcan. T'Pol is a Vulcan trying to adapt to living with humans. When she told Porthos that he was going to be OK, I thought that was great. She was being very "human" by talking to a dog just like we humans do from time to time.

Absolutely Yanks. Of course they chose her because she was hot and I for one am very glad they did.

I like Jolene's protrayal of T'Pol.  I also think that her physical attributes help her in getting that role.

Jolene Blalock was a TOS fan.

Just because she had a great body doesn't mean it had to be over exploited. Hoshi had a cute figure too as seen in the decon scenes and a men's magazine spread she did, but she didn't prance about the decks with her features getting the horny sailors all worked up. If you were archer, wouldn't you ask tpol to cover herself better because you thought the crewman ogling her was a distraction from her status as first officer? As for the neutral pressure sessions and her body suits, when tuvok did such things with kes or others, he was in full robes, not a body suit or his briefs. This alone shows you would expect tpol in robes. Yes, she was hot. And yes, daddy likey. However, I think this type of sexploitation takes away from the seriousness of the show.

They made her too much of a floosy. Star Trek women don't need to be loose to be attractive. I personally wish they would've toned that element down when it came to her character (she was an awesome character otherwise).

Why is it that Star Trek always takes the approach that to have an enlighten attitude about sex means to through off all moral restraint? I think that societies that pull out all the moral stops concerning sexuality end up being like our societies in this day and age; full of molesters, perverts, lewdness, and prostitution. I think that an enlighten society would show self-control instead of embracing hedonism. At the very least Vulcans should exhibit self-control since that is built into their characters.

I have to admit to being a full (red) blooded Terran male here when I say I have always had a soft spot for female Vulcans. It started with Saavik (a younger Kirsty Alley), followed by Valeris (Kim Catrall), and finally T'Pol (Jolene Blalock) ... all of whom I found quite yummy. There is just something about a beautiful woman with pointed ears (very Elven - I'm also a huge TLOTR fan). Having said that I didn't go much for the more mature variety - clocking in at several hundred years some of them ...


I suppose by extension this should apply to the Romulans too. Well, the Romulan commander whose name we never knew, who entertained Kirk was quite nice, but I don't like what they did with later Romulans (of either sex) with the quite unnecessary heavy ridged brows. Mind you that was always a problem with many of the later aliens in many of the Start Trek variations - it was a case of 'another alien - another humanoid with ridged nose or forehead' ...

I agree. I expect vulcans to be the most conservative, even to the extreme due to their emotional suppression and cold intolerance. A scantily clad andorian, for example, would seem more species appropriate.
As for the morality issues, we've discussed this thoroughly in the general trek homosexuality thread and there are good points for both sides. It is difficult to theorize as to the hedonistic nature of federation or inter planetary societies.

"embracing hedonism" ????? .... you think that applies to Enterprise? I would have to say more to TNG.


Not especially Enterprise more than the rest of the shows. you just see such flippant attitudes toward sex and relationships in all Star Trek. An example would be the reoccurring Risa story lines. They depict paradise as a place where you can experience causal sex with no moral inhibitions. I'd say that is at the very heart of the term hedonistic. I love Enterprise and T'Pol is a cool character i just felt they went too far sometimes however, it's still better than a lot of shows out now days in that regard.
