T'Pol - Wikipedia
T- "Captain, we are entering a zone of space controlled by the Suliban. It is known to be dangerous and I recommend extreme caution. T'Pol and Archer often disagree, but are gradually learning mutual respect. early rocky relations improved substantially — T'Pol has formed relationships with. including your religious or political views, health, racial background, country of origin, sexual identity and/or personal relationships. To learn.
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. 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. 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 goes on with a sigh. He wonders if he pointed ears are burning. Jonathan debates answering that his interest in logic is academic, but he doubts Arev will believe him. Best way to do that is with a pilgrimage to the place where it all started.
As it is, she merely inclines her head and corroborates his story. I believe it is possible that a human who seeks logic may learn to be as Vulcan as any of us. As it is, their true story comes out anyway, and Jonathan winds up carrying around in his head the centuries-dead father of logic himself. I think my superiors might even come to respect your military distinction. Relations between Andoria and Vulcan have improved, but Jonathan doubts Shran will ever truly trust any Vulcan.
She is certainly very attractive, even for a Vulcan female. He turns to see her regarding the viewscreen with a level stare. To persuade her to take the role, her agent gave her the script for the pilot episode, "Broken Bow". Blalock loved it so much she took the role. Co-creator and executive producer Rick Berman said, "We read hundreds of actresses and Jolene [Blalock] was in the last group we read. And she just blew us away.
It's taking things to such an acute level, where it's just all in the eyes. You can say everything that you need to say in the eyes, because language itself is so limiting. There's so much to say in words, but how much can words really express?
I love the fact that T'Pol can just say every thing with her eyes and her presence. Was she given a sexier costume because of the ratings?
Why was the show almost banned in the US? Here are some facts you may not have known about the sexiest Vulcan in space. She had to Remove Her Belly Button Ring In the first few seasons, Blalock wore a skin-tight suit, but her belly was exposed in several episodes.
The problem is that Blolock had a belly button ring and Vulcans don't wear jewelry. So they had to take it out. It was a disaster. And finally the producer sent me to a tattoo shop down the road, so I went there in my ears, wig, and a pink bathrobe.
No-one gave me a second look in the street and when I walked into the tattoo shop, the guy didn't even bat an eyelid. He just looked at my pointy ears — and they look very authentic — then started talking about the belly button ring. While her costume looked complicated, getting into her suit took "minutes" but it was the make-up that took the most time.
They added prosthetic ears, a wig and eyebrows. The makeup changed to a more Vulcan-style look in the third season. Michael Westmore was the makeup designer and supervisor and said, "Jolene was a Trek fan and she hated that they didn't give her usual Vulcan ears and eyebrows. So in season three, she and her makeup artist just went ahead and made the change.
