Ferengi soldiers I think, but they remind me of the Metaluna Mutant in This Island Earth.

Re: Voyager Weirdness

Exactly why would this be done by an autistic kid?

They would've been worth more in their original packaging though!

And that's probably exactly what the prop people on DS9 did.

Voyager seems to be several steps backward. I am only halfway through the series 3 though.

Some of the things i've noticed are:

* The Voyager non-humans looked really.. well.. HUMAN. Kes might as well have been a chick I dated in highschool, Tuvok looks more human than vulcan, B'Lanna is like Meg Griffin with a head injury (look at her compared to Kaylar)
Meg Griffin with a head injury!!! LOL.. yeah I always hated how un-klingon B'Lana looked and acted... Kaylar was freaking HOT....and Lursa and B'Tor got me through puberty..

As for Neelix.. I did like the character but i always thought Quark was a better written "comedy relief" character ... Neelix is more like Rom with a bachelors degree

I agree Tuvok didnt look vulcan either. But I always thought Spock looked a little too human ( i guess thats acceptable since he's only half)..Also didnt like the way his brother Sybok looked..and he's supposed to be FULL blooded vulcan....Dunno what the makeup artist was thinking making him look like Kenny Rogers..

Vulcans should generally look like this. Notice how prominently the ears and eyebrows stand out:



(Sorry for the link thingy..How do you guys get pictures to show up in the actual post?)

Eyebrows and Ears on Vulcans/Romulans are supposed to have symmetry

This question, and more, is covered in the FAQ. I'd suggest reading it at any site, as rules and Terms of Service vary.

When posting images, please make sure you do not post more than 50-70kb worth of photos, as a courtesy to those with slower connections. Images are to be no larger than 640x480.
Plus, you should only include an inline images from web space that you own, or with the permission from the webmaster on which the image is located to avoid what results in costly bandwidth theft to the originating site owner.
Instead, please post a link to the image.

Re: Voyager Weirdness

Isn't the whole reason Neelix called Tuvok "Mr. Vulcan" because the introductions were something like (paraphrasing):

Neelix: "And you are...?"
Tuvok: "Vulcan"

Which Neelix took to be Tuvok's last name, as in "Mr. Tuvok Vulcan"?

If that's true, I can't blame Neelix for getting it wrong. Of course, he never corrected it after hearing NO ONE else call Tuvok that, when he did hear people say "Mr. Tuvok."

Still, I still call a nephew "Baby Sam" even though he's at least 25yo and near 6' tall. But when I met him, he was only 3 years old and quite short. The "Baby Sam" name has continued in much of Hubby's family, too, since there is (and was) an adult Sam.
