And someone hasn't seen the cast of "Spock's Brain".

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

My only problem with Tuvix is that he should have either been taller or fatter. They merged two people into one. Either Louie Anderson or Shaquille O'Neal should have played him.

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

No, not the dumbest character. But he wasn't particularily smart either. I gues the odd combination of Tuvok and Neelix did create some problems.

I did actually find Vorik more stupid than Tuvix but when it comes to the most stupid, then I have to think about it. Maybe Mudd, I'm not sure.

Vorik was the guy they came up with the insult "Vulky" for. He wasn't unintelligent, but he was thick.

He probably weighed twice as much as Tuvok or Neelix. Since he wasn't bigger, he must have been denser.

Therefore, if Tuvix was so dense... see thread title. <rimshot>

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

He was very creepy looking.

But what is a real shame is we never got to hear from either Neelix or Tuvok if they remembered it! What was it like.. did it make them more sympathetic towards each other? Or deeply, deeply embarrassed. I think it would be hard to recall it other than as a bad dream about something awful happening to someone you knew in the dream but didn't recognize when you woke up.

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

Tuvix masturbated.

or he should have.

is that why he was so insistent that Kes should love him because he wouldn't take care of himself?

But since it's unlikely that he didn't, some memories should stay repressed for peace of mind.

When Tuvok and Neelix materialized in sickbay, neither seem surprised to be there, instead of on the transporter pad.

Complete memories, including emotions, fears, thoughts of Kes, desire to live?

Maybe?

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

Ha! I just realized something. They could have used this as an excuse to reset Tuvok's pon farr cycle. The merging/unmerging caused physiological changes or something. If it wasn't going to happen for another seven years, it would have been a good excuse for the show to sidestep the issue.

Sure would have been better than what we got.

Reset?

What about prematurely triggered?

OH!

What if Tuvix had faked his pon far to get his end over with Kes and then wandered across several other women on voyager claiming that pon far had just started and only THEY could save his life?

Lying very well is not rape.

And they killed him.

Tricking the people who are intent on murdering you into some harmless recreational sex seems like a fair trade off.

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

Apparently it is in some countries.

We didn't get enough days with Tuvix. He was smarmy to Janeway:

"Captain, has anyone ever told you that you are as fair-minded as you are lovely?"

:: gag ::

He hit on Kes which only an idiot would do in these circumstances, an idiot or someone with the desperate entitlement of jealous Neelix and the intellectual entitlement of Tuvok. He managed to win over some of the crew who seemed to like him better than either Neelix or Tuvok.

I think if they'd had him for months he would have polarized them, some would loath him and some would be in his inner circle, championing him.

Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

No one sides against Janeway.

At least, not for long.

The vinidcation she expresses sending chakotay to his room was like a powermad reform school prefect.
