Would a captain even be allowed to do that? And what if Bolian, Andorian, Trill, Bajoran, or Betazoid crewmembers were assigned to the ship. What would his attitude be towards them?
I'm assuming that a captain has some degree of control over who is assigned to a ship. At least Solok does. He could probably pull some strings at Starfleet Command to ensure that the racial purity of his crew was maintained.
Yes, a captain would have some discretion over the crew assigned to his ship, but it seems highly unlikely that a captain could request ONLY members of his own species.
Or perhaps the T'Kumbra gradually became a Vulcan-only ship, as the non-Vulcans who served there eventually left because they couldn't stand Solok's attitude.
