    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

    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.

    I've always thought his is the third-best portrayal of a Vulcan, right behind Nimoy and Lenard.

    As a man it feels impolite to say, but she was way too sleezy.

    Greasy like a used car salesman or Herb Tarleck.

    That's all Talbot's fault. She was stuck there with him and he gutterized her.

    In one of the Star Trek 6 commentaries, she tried to sell me Staten Island.

    Mate, you are splitting hairs (no pun intended).. In my first post i was referring to Tuvok as a character (being unreasonable and not having the "stink of wisdom i got from spock"...) ..

    Next i stated Tim Russ was "SPOT ON" meaning i commended Tim Russ's acting ability. My Ire is with the fact that the VISUAL portrayal of Tuvok is both insulting to the concept of Vulcans and cheap!

    If Tim Russ had been given the appropriate vulcan characteristics there would not even be an issue.. instead we're given a poor substitute for crack cocaine.. (in the US they call it "red bull")




    Try opening that closed minded little african american mind of yours eh?

    There was nothing wrong with how Tuvok looked.

    Saavik doesn't count just because Slut says so. So by that logic Chang wouldn't either. It makes defending your position easy when you can decide what facts can and can't be used. Easy to ferret out those inconvenient ones that undermine your position.

    You presume too much, and sure don't sound like anyone from Indiana either. And that's another racist remark you've made.

    Picard OWNS Tuvok!!

    He is obviously the hair apparent of this thread. Let us replace all Tuvok discussion with his bald wonderfulness.

    You do a google search fro Black Vulcan, and it's just an endless slue of porn parodies starring the character Black Vulcan from the 70s cartoon Superfriends...

    OH!

    In Young Justice this year, they reintroduced all the made up racial token characters from the Superfriends, Apache Chief, Samurai, El Dorado and whatnot... But did they decide that Static (shock) was a modern do-over interchangeable withBlack Vulcan?

    I'm 90 percent sure that Slut is Black.

    There is a small difference between denigrating racial abuse and self deprecating humour, but not if there's still a 10 percent chance that this Slut is a cracker.
