Commander Willard Decker (Stephen Collins)

Ilia (Persis Khambatta)

  • The Artifact: Ilia was also intended to be a new character on Phase II, and screen tests of Persis Khambatta in a '60's-era miniskirt uniform are extant.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Decker, Ilia, and V'Ger, though there is some ambiguity.
  • Bald Woman
  • Deadpan Snarker: At least according to the background information that Gene Roddenberry wrote for the character's species. He described the race as having an extremely developed sense of humor with a delivery so dry that they seem very cold and aloof to outsiders. Most other races don't ever realize when a Deltan is making fun of them, which probably explains the Breathless Non Sequitur she delvers to Kirk:
    Ilia: My oath of celibacy is on record, Captain.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Your mileage may vary, obviously, but Ilia is one of a select group of Trek characters with less hair than Picard. Nonetheless several male crew members get all goofy around her. The novelization explains this as her race releasing pheromones whenever they're around unfamiliar males - so it's not really because of her attractiveness sometimes; they just can't help their reactions.
  • Machine Monotone: Both before and after she literally becomes a machine.
