Well, this fellow, Mr John Torres, looks Hispanic to me.

So who is this Vulcan female? (From Repression, Season 7)

Even if she were married, wouldn't the crew Vulcans create a "logical" solution to their mutual problem? It's not as if they were obeying a sanctified religiously-decreed union; to a Vulcan, marriage is surely a logical arrangement - subject to changing circumstances?

I know, I know, then there's no plot point.
She came out of a plot hole. The same thing with the rarely appearing blueshirt team assisting the Doctor. If they were a backup staff, why were they almost never seen when there were so many opportunities a bunch of assistant medics or porters would have helped.

Re: Paris + B'Elanna scene, absolute cop-out

A while back Teya pwned me good.

Spanish immigrants have been interbreeding with the Native (South) Americans for the last 500 years so effectively, that it's almost impossible to find anyone completely Indo or completely Spanish, unless they're fresh off the boat.

Most Latino and Hispanic (which doesn't always mean the same thing) people do seem to focus on how Spanish they are rather than how Indo they are, but they're still credibly indo... Haven't you ever wondered where the millions(?) of Incas, Aztecs and Mayans would up?
