Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature
How is that inconsistent? We've seen "white" Vulcans and "black" Vulcans, so why couldn't there be Asian-looking Vulcans? We've seen at least one full Romulan, Caithlin Dar, played by a Chinese-American actress, and there have been Asian extras cast as Vulcan background characters.
According to Memory Beta, Caithlin Dar was half-human/ half-Romulan
. It actually says her dad was from Ireland, and mother was Romulan. I don't know where the asian features are supposed to come from. Maybe when the Irish mate with Romulans, you get asian looking Romulans? I assume this comes from the novelization of STV.
