The majority of the ships in Starfleet are crewed by different races from the various Federation planets. The fans tuned in every week to see Spock's perspective on things, while also waiting for him to inevitably lose control and start wrecking the ship. This has led to numerous different interpretations of the Vulcans, not all of which gel together. One of the main ways in which Vulcans differ from humans is that their blood is copper-based, while human blood is iron-based. This is reflected in the fact that Vulcans have green blood, which is a trait that they share with the Romulans.

She has also guest-starred on television series and films. Jolene Blalock was born and raised in San Diego , California , with three siblings. I was such an awkward-looking child, I've no idea what happened. I didn't have a good childhood because I never could get along with other kids. I was the child that sat in the corner eating lunch by myself.
What I want to focus on particularly in this piece is the way in which her sexualized appearance complicates her already complex, Othered identity as a Vulcan. Her clothing reflects her identity as a Vulcan with the High Command, a lauded position she worked long and hard to attain. It is only when she begins her commission on the Enterprise that she is dressed in the skin-tight uniform. Her hypersexualized appearance is therefore directly connected to her placement on the Enterprise. Her Vulcan identity is as much on full display as her body. While the crew and Archer do eventually welcome her into the family, she is still Othered simply by the constant difference in her physical appearance. Spock wore the same Starfleet attire as the rest of the TOS crew. Still, the difference is significant. Spock successfully blends in with the crew more easily, on appearance alone, not to mention his half-human identity.
