The Vulcans

The Vulcans are synonymous with Star Trek and I always enjoy Vulcan storylines (more so than Klingon ones) so it was hard to go past them.  I enjoy drawing them the most, though to be fair Andorians and Tellarites are also pretty damn fun to illustrate.

They’ve had a pretty rough run of it especially in Enterprise where they were painted in a very different light and in my opinion probably a little too harshly.  Their stoic logic was supposed to be the thing that gave the impression they were arrogant and superior not actually being arrogant and superior as a culture.

It just feels like a disingenuous and lazy way to handle them writing wise.

The Bajorans were a very close second for me, a race that has a rich culture that is explored throughout seven years of Deep Space Nine, they are a really interesting race and I hope if they ever actually get back to making post Voyager Star Trek that we see the Bajorans integrated into the Federation.  And yes I know technically they weren’t in the Federation.
