Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I'm not a big fan of Voyager, but one of my favorite characters is Tuvok. Tim Russ' portrayal of Tuvok was, to me, quintessentially Vulcan in every way.

Dont get me wrong mate.. I agree whole heartedley.. Tim Russ' acting was SPOT ON.. My quarrel is with the costume and writing team who decided to redefine the "look" of Vulcanism that was established by TNG and DS9..

(thats "new trek" vs "old trek" for you boys and girls playing the home game. Saavik yarns need not apply)

Why would Saavik not come into it?

Because it contradicts his viewpoint.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

Old Trek is TOS and the TOS movies. Eventually this will become Primordial Trek and TNG-ENT will become Old Trek and JJ Trek will become New Trek but we have to get enough JJ Trek volume wise to make this happen.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I thought JJ's universe was already being considered the New/Nu Trek. How can the Berman years, which ended 8 years ago, still be considered New?

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

The prefix "Nu" refers to it being a reboot. Berman era folk tend to call TOS "old" but they don't call Berman era "new".

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

Posttos could sound dirtier.

Tosplus?

Picard went to Saaviks wedding.

It's all the same dirty diaper.

Although Robin was in Gambit as someone else.

As soon as they realized that they had Robin, you would think that there would have been dramatic changes tot he script unless there was a legal reason they couldn't use Saavik in TNG free of charge?

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I agree though you did make me google "posstos" which I am now laughing about. However there are some fans the refer to the TOS era Trek as old.

This seems to contradict your original post, where you say

. . .Tim Russ is an OK actor.. tho i think he was a bit more unreasonable than the average vulcan. I didnt get the stink of wisdom from him that i got from Sarek, Spock etc.. He seemed way too haughty. . .
Your main objection seems to be that Tuvok is dark skinned, which was most likely a producers/casting decision and not that of writers or costumers.

And I seem to recall a magazine interview from almost 20 years ago, where Tuvok's hair was decided with Russ' own input. I'm actually relieved they went back to using an actor's natural hair instead of those stupid identical wigs.

The saddest thing was the DS9 era female Romulans. They dumped Caithlin Dar and gave us asexual flower pots.

She was cute, no doubt about that. The TNG/DS9 era only had Sela, Cretak, the extra who debriefed the DS9 crew about the Defiant and the extra who killed Garak's assassin. Not exactly an all star cast. Donatra wasn't that bad though.
