It's understandable at first, but when he's doing it years later it's just one more way Neelix is a jerk.

Re: Voyager Weirdness

Here's where Neelix's confusion begins, immediately after getting beamed aboard.

NEELIX: Astonishing! You Federations are obviously an advanced culture.

TUVOK: The Federation is made up of many cultures. I am Vulcan.

NEELIX: Neelix. Good to meet you!
(Neelix gives Tuvok a bear hug.)
After he finally figured it out, maybe he kept using "Mr. Vulcan" as a sign of affection, or considered it an inside joke between him and Tuvok, like a nickname.

Or maybe he just liked being an @$$h*le.

Yeah I took it as affection and trying to friendly up his relationship with Tuvok. Which is why it comes off as trying too hard since Tuvok rebuff him.

Re: Voyager Weirdness

I totally know WHY neelix does it. The problem is, he CONTINUES to do it.. like its endearing or something.. That and the fact that he keeps trying to make Tuvok laugh..

He wouldnt try that crap with Worf!... SHEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIT

Re: Voyager Weirdness

I wouldnt call Neelix a jerk.. Just an annoying little bastard.

Quark was a jerk, but we LOVED him.. The writers totally took the character of Quark (who, lets face it, was a talented hacker, pilot, social engineer, negotiator... he just chose to lead the typical greedy ferengi lifestyle) and used him as a baseline for Neelix. Neelix, is a soldier, survivor, negotiator, talented pilot. He isnt a bad strategist either.

They are by no means the "same" character.. But Id much rather be stuck in the Delta quadrant with Neelix instead of "the son of Keldar"..

I couldnt imagine Voyager without him. He certainly evolves as the series progresses.

(and lets be honest.. Quark could never have scored Kes.. She'd punch him in the Oomaks the first time he opened his mouth)

Yeah... I could take the time to reply to that but.... I can't take you seriously after comparing Quark to all Jews. What an amaaaaaazing coincidence that these new posters lately all keep making similarly bizarre racist remarks.
