Neelix is basically a golden retriever puppy. He loves everyone. All the time. If you don't love him, his feelings are hurt and he tries relentlessly to make you love him.
Especially with Tuvok. Tuvok is the opposite of Neelix and that's apparent from the very beginning. Where Tuvok is reserved, Neelix is emotive. Where Neelix is gregarious, Tuvox is introverted. Tuvok is all business while Neelix appoints himself the crew's "morale officer." And, no matter what Neelix does, he just can't win Tuvok over. Nevertheless, Neelix can't help himself. He loves Mr. Vulcan and just won't give up on what he hopes will be a very special friendship someday.
I love both of these characters so much. I love them all the way through and I can't wait to watch their personalities and their relationship develop through the seasons. Just thinking about that made me want to do a little tribute to these two:
|We're totally never going to get turned into one |
guy in a wacky transporter accident, right?
After doing The Doctor/Kes and this one, I'm thinking about doing more Voyager portraits. What characters would you like to see together?
