A man walks down the street in that Vulcan haircut, people know he's not afraid of anything.

Ok then.. Lets see if a brief recap is useful:

Since I started rewatching Voyager. I am in TEARS because while I appreciate Tim Russ's acting ability, the fact that he was not given a traditional vulcan look (he has what im told is his (Tim Russ) natural curdled/curled hair.. TAKES AWAY from his portrayal of a Vulcan..


This is inappropriate!!!... Based on the mythos established by TNG and DS9 .. Add to that the fact that the ACTOR Tim Russ has some sort of receeding hairline or haircut or whatever that looks totally abnormal.... FOR A VULCAN...

Why couldnt the traditional Vulcan wig simply have been used? Tuvok would have been a solid character. .. Instead we have this nickel and dime nonsense (read my rant on Janeways Bun of Death)...

After the success of TNG and DS9 we should have learned our lessons by now and had something that was at least MEDIOCRE star trek.. .. instead what ive seen (so far.. im just finished season 1 and 2) is just IRRITATING as all get out mate..

-crim
I've seen TNG nearly in its entirety and VOY I have watched in its entirety a couple times over now. I am still on Season 1 of DS9 and they have not really featured any Vulcans yet, so I can't really reference any Vulcans from the show, but as of now Tuvok has to be my favorite Vulcan so far. He is logical, as Vulcans of course are. He is a good advisor, tactical officer, and security officer to Janeway. He has the ability to be funny without meaning to be. He is witty, cunning, intelligent, and not bad looking for a 100+ year old Vulcan. What is the issue? That he isn't a spitting image of Spock?

Just like humans come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and looks...why can't Vulcans? I see no reason why Vulcan physiology cannot be as diverse as humans are.


Just found this in the Memory Alpha on Vulcan phisiology:

Genetically, Vulcans and Humans were similar enough that they could produce offspring without any problems. (ENT: "Terra Prime")
Externally, Vulcans were generally similar to Humans, the chief exceptions being the Vulcans' notably arched and up-swept eyebrows and distinguished external ear structure, the top of which tapered into a clearly defined point.

Most Vulcans had straight, glossy dark brown or, more commonly, black hair and pale skin with a very subtle greenish tinge, much as the skin of Humans of European descent had a very subtle reddish or pinkish tinge. However, some Vulcans, including Tuvok, had brown skin, tightly coiled black hair, and physiognomic features similar to those found in Humans of African descent.

Others shared physiognomic features similar to those found in Humans of East Asian descent. However, most Vulcans had a vaguely Eurasian appearance. (Star Trek: The Original Series; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock; Star Trek: Voyager).

Wrong, they all taste like chicken. Kind of off chicken.
