A while ago jkusters and I were having a discussion about Vulcans as portrayed in Star Trek. Who our favorite character and/or actor might be aside, we were discussing who best represented what the "quintessential Vulcan" would be as described so often in the various series (logical, repressed emotions, what have you). We were of differing minds as to which character would qualify as the best representative, so I thought it would be fun to poll others.
I debated sticking with only the major characters (Spock, Tuvok & T'Pol), but I think we saw/have seen enough of both Sarek and Soval to include them (of course there were others, but for the most part we only saw them in one episode; however, if you think one of them best represented what Vulcans should be, please include them).
Which was portrayed most like a quintessential Vulcan?
Sarek (Mark Lenard, Star Trek)
Soval (Gary Graham, Enterprise)
Spock (Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek)
T’Pol (Jolene Blalock, Enterprise)
Tuvok (Tim Russ, Star Trek: Voyager)
If "other," please specify:
