Re: Tuvok is an Idiot

Since Kes' supernatural powers all involve direct manipulation of molecules, I don't think anything else he could have chosen would be less risky than fire.

Re: Tuvok is an Idiot

So.. This is suposed to be about Star Trek.. and Tuvok.. Right?

Lets just say racism is not ok, everyone agrees and be done with that.

Now we are free to argue about Tuvok.

I LOVE TUVOK, but he is no Spock. Still, he aint no fool.

Re: Tuvok is an Idiot

I love that Tuvok is a healthy Vulcan, not struggling in his own culture like Spock and T'Pol were. He's figured out how to live with humans too so he's not trying to be as uber Vulcan as possible around them. He's pretty much the most relaxed Vulcan we get to know.

What is with the Asian thing??? Did the OP write something disparaging about Asian culture in another thread or something?!?

In terms of Tuvok, he most certainly is not an idiot and is one of my favorite Vulcan characters. Vulcans are my favorite Trek species to watch period and I think Tuvok was definitely "Vulcan" enough.

This thread title is pretty offensive too. Idiot is a strong word.
In his OP he compared Tuvok's idiocy to all Asians pretty much, though he had the good grace to edit that out.

Ok....I don't think I want to know what was written...but glad it was edited out. Sheesh.

Nearly all of my friends are Korean so ill slap anyone who is hating on Asians!

Also its just a matter of fact that Tuvok is no dumbass. Ok...he let Kes play with fire once but it wasn't his fault that she turned into some kind of telepathic superman. He didn't know she was getting THAT strong to the point where she was tearing up the ship.

Re: Tuvok is an Idiot

I actually liked Tuvok, though I think Spock better exemplified "Vulcan Logic". Tuvok always struck me as too arrogant. I wish he wasn't though, because needing to feel superior to others carries with it an emotional element. Hardly logical.
I'm guessing some disparaging comment about asians was edited out of the original post. That's probably for the best.
All-in-all though, Tuvok was an awesome character, IMO.

If you watch ENT Tuvok is a very humble representation of his species.

A blind man that shaves with a cut-throat razor?

Idiot might not be a strong enough word.

Have we ever seen a Vulcan other than Sybok with a beard?

ack, right.. but let's discount that. Mirror Soval also had a beard. Any non MU Vulcans with beards besides Sybok?

Really shaving is illogical, but probably reminds Vulcans of their terrifying evolution from lesser, more carnal life forms so it's not surprising they do it.
