I dunno why, but I always liked Vorik. Wanted to see more from him, really.

If we're counting books, then Surak.

If we're only counting screen events, then it would be easier to say who wasn't a good Vulcan. Sarek, Soval, Tuvok, T'Pol, T'Pau (both versions), everyone from Amok Time, everyone from the end of ST: III, everyone from the DS9 baseball game - all good. The worst I can say for almost anyone who played a Vulcan is that they were boring. And, well, they're Vulcan, so that isn't really a problem, is it?

Ironically, if I were going to pick the worst on-screen performance of a Vulcan, it would be Surak from TOS. But even that has an excuse - he was fake!

The worst thing any of the actors do is mistake attitude for stoicism from time to time, but that's mostly the long-term actors like Russ or Blalock, and really, pretty understandable. Especially for Russ. If I were on Voyager, I'd be pissed off all the time, too.
Great post...And I agree with all of it..

But one Vulcan I liked? The dude from SAREK, TNG's great episode. The younger Vulcan who was tasked to control Sarek and then later admitted to Data that there was a problem? I thought he was pretty good..

T'vok is second I think, with Saavik third. I was tempted to vote Valeris cuz nobody has mentioned her yet.

Re: the SECOND best VULCAN!!!

^Heh. I wonder if Tuvok had a twin sister named T'Vok, given the Vulcan naming scheme...

Ooh, Photoshop time.

Re: the SECOND best VULCAN!!!

That bloke from Take Me Out To The Holosuite or whatever that episode was named. He was just so damn annoying he was cool. And in the end, he just didn't get it. I don't know the first thing about baseball (only that it's sort of like cricket ), but the episode was fun and the Vulcans were even more fun.

Re: the SECOND best VULCAN!!!

That would be Captain Solok of the U.S.S. T'Kumbra, CommanderRaytas.

I like him too.

Sarek aside, I'll say Soval, because he was a total dick...who was so often right.

Re: the SECOND best VULCAN!!!

I think SAREK was #1....I think Nimoy was #2...and I think T'pring was #3 simply because she was so fricking hot and needed a man to tame her (me)...

Oops, almost forgot. I'll be back!

Prepare yourselves for the greatest Vulcan of all, T'Vok:

Re: the SECOND best VULCAN!!!

I'll go with Sarek. I like Tuvok, but I've always felt that Tim Russ took the whole no emotion thing to mean 'just play him dull'.
