Was Tuvok born on Vulcan?

I don't recall when (if ever) Tuvok's actual birthplace was ever stated. Was he born on Vulcan?

The reason I ask this is (WARNING: STAR TREK XI SPOILER AHEAD, I'M NOT KIDDING, DON'T READ THIS IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPOILERS, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DO READ IT, MAJOR STAR TREK XI SPOILER IS APPROACHING):

Sounds like an Enterprise script they kept recycling.

Well, according to Memory Alpha, which cites several episodes of Voyager, he was born on the Vulcanis Lunar Colony.

And I will NOT read your spoiler, I won't, I won't, I won't. Yet, anyway.

Re: Was Tuvok born on Vulcan?

I'm sorry if anybody actually read my spoiler without wanting to. I thought if I revealed it was from Trek XI, it would be too obvious. I fixed it.

We don't know exactly where that is, do we? We do know that Vulcan has no moon of course. So it can't be in Vulcan orbit. If it were, my spoiler would apply.

Because...it was there.

I have very little self-control now, so I shall leave this thread immediately.

Well, yeah, I know that. Obviously the existing universe/timeline won't be affected. I was strictly speaking of the new one.

Hey, don't come crying to me. I clearly labelled it as a spoiler. And I relabelled it as a Trek XI spoiler before you read it.

Re: Was Tuvok born on Vulcan?

I dunno how canon promos are, but in the Home Promo for Voyager's final season Tuvok states his "home" as "Vulcan".

But, but... Oh, in the name of Janeway - I'm a spoiler-whore with zero self-disclipine. When I see a spoiler button, me pushes it. I was programmed that way.

That was the very first thing my friends and I thought about when we saw that movie on Tuesday night!!

I checked my notes on Tuvie-boy, though (http://www.timrusstribute.com/Voyager.htm), and I don't think there is a problem. He was indeed born on Vulcanis Lunar Colony at Stardate 38774, which, according to my calculations would be the year 2264. It could work out.

Why, it's the moon of neighboring sister planet Vulcanis of course. Ya know the one that Vulcanians come from.

The only problem there though is that the stardate is a TNG era stardate and 38774 would fall somewhere mid 2361. TOS stardates for 2264 would be hard to hazard an accurate guess becuase of the way TOS season 1 was aired but the dates went between 1312 and 3417.

I know. But stardates have never made much sense to me anyway. And maybe there are different "stardate calendars" as well (like there are Islamic and Jewish and the Gregorian calendar on Earth right now) and Vulcanis Lunar Colony used a lesser used one to record birthdates (Vulcans probably have their own traditions...). ;-) I'm sure Tuvie is fine.
