Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I've seen Klingons without facial ridges. Some have spikey ones, some have rounded ones, some have ridges that look like female body parts like Gowron. So even they're different even if their hair's all dark.

I hear even the mighty Kor himself once was a smooth skin.

Lets try a different approach. Let me ask this. Has anybody seen a bald klingon? or a klingon with Red hair? ...how about a white andorian??

If you did you'd be like WTF right?

...Same difference

JUST IN CASE you're not kidding,

Chang was bald (STVI)

There are white Andorians. They're called the Aenar (ENT: "The Aenar")

This is pretty offensive right here (apparently your intent), and I'm an old white guy.

I have no idea how the color of someone's skin interferes with character development, unless that viewer is only receptive to their own preconceived stereotypes. I suppose you think the President of the United States is a "ghetto looking dude" too.

Tuvok is an awesome Vulcan. Wonderfully played by Russ.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

Tuvok was blind and still groomed himself with a straight razor in year of hell.

Tuvok spent two months in a subspace fold where his doo did not expand or bulge in the slightest.... And yes he continued to shave despite not having the correct tools for the job.

Slut, if you fight it, you'll just sink faster.

Tuvok always struck me as more... cultured... than other regular Vulcans like say Spock or Soval. Definitely T'Pol.

And I like that they made him a security officer instead of the science stereotype that was happening.

Was the Albino from DS9's "Blood Oath" a Klingon?

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

According to memory Beta he was. Of course we've seen Klingons with graying hair before so that doesn't mean much. He really didn't act very Klingon though and seemed to regard them quite disdainfully.

According to Memory Alpha we don't know if he was a Klingon or not.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

Tuvok was also old.

Approaching 100.

Solok was at the Academy at the same time as Sisko, and why would he select a team of crotchety old men to crush humanity? Old people have different fashion to young people. Old people usually stick to the fashion they think is best from when they were prime. My grammy wore the same clothes, and/or identical replacements of those clothes for 50 years. After 1954 is just something that happened to other people.

Tuvok's "prime" period was the 2290s.

It's possible that Tuvok looks exactly like all the other Vulcans who were young and hip in their mid 20s during the 2290s?

He was an albino.
His hair wasn't graying, it was genetically white just as was his skin. The point I'm getting at is like the Albino, Tuvok's hair could also be explained as a genetic mutation or defect. We also should take into account that Tuvok is not from Vulcan but rather a Vulcan colony where over time this mutation could have evolved over time due to climate and environmental differences compared. While yet still, if there is diversity amoung humans, Klingons(as even Dax has mentioned) and we've even seen it with Hirogen, then why even question diversity in Vulcans?

No, because we saw Tuvok as a young man and his hair was the same.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I think the most logical conclusion is that not all Vulcans are alike. Just like with Humans, there are a variety of different ethnicities among Vulcans, and Tuvok represents one of them.
