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. The green blood also results in bruises that have a green tint.

Vulcans sometimes Vulcanians  are a fictional extraterrestrial humanoid species in the Star Trek universe and media franchise. In the various Star Trek television series and movies, they are noted for their attempt to live by logic and reason with as little interference from emotion as possible. Known for their pronounced eyebrows and pointed ears, they originate from the fictional planet Vulcan. In the Star Trek universe, they were the first extraterrestrial species to make contact with humans. The most famous actor to portray a Vulcan is Leonard Nimoy , who first played the character Mr. Show creator Gene Roddenberry revealed in that he wanted an alien as part of the ship's crew, but knew that budget restraints would limit make-up choices. He chose actor Leonard Nimoy because of his "high Slavic cheekbones and interesting face" and "with those cheekbones some sort of pointed ear might go well. The Vulcan salutation is a hand gesture consisting of a raised hand with the palm forward and the thumb extended, while the fingers are parted between the middle and ring finger. Typically, the phrase "Live long and prosper" is uttered when making the salute.
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.
The naming conventions for Vulcan women are less explicitly codified, but there are some clear patterns to them as well. It seems clear, from looking at the list of Vulcan names over the history of Star Trek , that there are some fairly rigid gendered naming conventions in Vulcan society. However, in a fascinating and wonderful turn of events, just as many — if not more — Vulcans break these conventions rather than follow them!
