Top 50 Star Trek Characters – #38 Tuvok
Tuvok was Chief of Security on board Voyager.
Extremely loyal to Captain Janeway, she often considered him her most trusted confidant. Before it was revealed he was working undercover for Starfleet, Tuvok led Chakotay and the rest of the Maquis to believe he was one of them. This initially led to a rift between Tuvok and members of the Maquis crew, before trust was re-established based on the circumstances the two crews found themselves in.
Tim Russ had originally auditioned for the role of Geordi LaForge on TNG and even appeared in a few guest starring roles before finally landing the role of the no-nonsense Vulcan.
