  • John Billingsley: "We have an episode coming up in which - I won't say a renegade band of Vulcans - but a splinter group who believe that it is possible to allow oneself more emotional availability than most Vulcans do, arrive on board and they try to inculcate T'Pol in their way of thinking with calamitous results." (February 20, 2002 - TrekToday)

  • Brannon Braga: "We have a show coming up where T'Pol gets nasty with a Vulcan. And that's a real sexy show. [...] We're going to meet some Vulcans who are trying to put emotion into their lives. And T'Pol is going to become enmeshed in a twisted tale of seduction, like a Vulcan '9 1/2 Weeks'." (February 26, 2002 - TrekToday)
