    Hi Everyone,

    As you know I've been busy trying to fix multiple interviews for UFP and give you the opportunity to ask the people that made Star Trek great!

    So after the success of the Malcolm Read interview I have been chasing further glory!

    So without further ado.... Tim Russ aka Tuvok from ST:VOY has agreed to answer your questions!!!

    He's really busy so he can't do a live interview like last time but has agreed to answer some of your questions!

    Let ent me know what you would like to ask him!!!

    thanks UFP and hope to hear from you all soon LLAP

    Great work setting up another interview so soon!

    1. After narrowly missing out on getting the role of Geordi La Forge on TNG, how did it feel years later to finally get your staring role on Voyager?

    2. 22 years on from your first episode in Voyager, how do you look back on your time spent playing Tuvok, and what do you wish if anything had been different?

    3. Given the number of guest roles you have portrayed across a number of Trek series and movies, any chance we may get to see you on Discovery?

    You seem to gravitate toward Star Trek roles. How much of a Star Trek fan are you in real life?

    Avenger you're awesome ! Smile

    Here is my question :
    Was it difficult to "suppress" your emotions as you were playing a Vulcan ? Or was it more difficult to play an "emotional" Tuvok in Riddles (6x06) ? (btw I really enjoyed your performance !)

    Okay another (technical) question then, less better than my previous one but I've been obsessed with that for years Big Grin (If it's not relevant then just forget about this one)

    I know that the combadge on your uniform costume was Velcro attached, but you and your fellow cast members sometimes had it removed (like at the end of Basics Part I) and we never saw the Velcro (24th century tech, of course). Did you had a special badge for those scenes, like a magnet one ?
