The Quintessential Vulcan Poll

I'm sure this has been done a million times before, but it amuses me nonetheless. :)

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).

Have fun!

I voted Spock, but I feel I need to clarify: Spock in his appearances on ST:Next Gen are what evoke the quintessential Vulcan for me. Logical, very intelligent, without emotion obscuring thought.

The most logical vulcan of them all is, hands down, T'Pring. "Amok Time" is a great episode because of it.

Every other example given has shown emotion at least once. Spock even SMILED once, for God's sake. T'Pol's logic is flawed...often.

There isn't enough info on Soval to tell for sure.
