Biography: Tuvok join Starfleet Academy in 2289, at his parent's insistence. After his graduation in 2293, he served as a junior science officer on the USS Excelsior NCC-2000 under the command of Captain Sulu. Despite Tuvok's resistance to emotionless logic as a child, he later embraced it, preferring the controlled discipline on Vulcan instead of the multicultural enviroment of Starfleet. Tuvok even spoke out against Captain Spock's proposal of an alliance between the Federation and Klingon Empire. He later resigned from Starfleet and return to Vulcan to undergo the Kolinahr. While on Vulcan, he taught archery science for several years at the Vulcan Institute of Defensive Arts. Tuvok also underwent the tal'oth ritual, to survive in the desert for four months with only the ritual blade. After experiencing Pon farr in 2304 he married T'Pel and raised a family of his own. Tuvok returned to Starfleet in 2349, after a 51-year absence, and assigned to the USS Wyoming NCC-43730. Tuvok also taught at the Academy for 16 years. While posted on the USS Billings in 2365 he served as a tactical specialist where he first met Captain Janeway. Prior to his undercover mission to infilrate the Maquis in 2371, he was posted at Jupiter Station. During the undercover mission, Tuvok was onboard Chakotay's Maquis raider which was sent 70,000 light years away into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. Once the USS Voyager was also swepted into the Delta Quadrant Tuvok resumed his duties as tactical officer. In 2374, on stardate 51186, Tuvok was promoted to lieutenant commander. In 2376, Tuvok was assimilated by the Borg.

Tim Russ previously played Devor in "Starship Mine" - TNG, T'Kar in "Invasive Procedures" - DS9, and an unnamed lieutenant on the Enterprise-B in Star Trek: Generations.
