For the prime universe counterpart, please see Tuvok.

Tuvok was a Vulcan member of the Terran Rebellion against the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance in the mirror universe.

Typical of his species, he was notably less impulsive than other members of the Rebellion, such as Julian Bashir and Rom, and preferred a logical approach to combating the Alliance. Nevertheless, he was as surprised as anyone by the apparent return of the presumed-dead Benjamin Sisko. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")


Background information

Mirror Tuvok, like his counterpart in our universe, was played by Tim Russ.

Tuvok's part in "Through the Looking Glass" was originally to have been filled by a mirror universe version of Sakonna. However, Tuvok replaced her in the script by the time the final draft teleplay was issued. That same script mentioned that Tuvok was the leader of a different faction from Bashir and that he was "a coldly logical soldier." (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion - A Series Guide and Script Library; [1])

The mirror Tuvok is the only mirror universe counterpart of a Star Trek: Voyager regular character to ever appear on screen. He is also the only mirror universe counterpart of a regular character to ever appear outside of their counterpart's "home" series.

The costume worn by the mirror Tuvok was later worn by the Tuvok of the prime universe in VOY: "Concerning Flight".


Tuvok reappeared in the novella The Mirror-Scaled Serpent, along with the counterparts of other USS Voyager crew members. According to that story, Tuvok was the slave of the mirror universe version of T'Kar for many years. This was an in-joke based on the fact that both characters were played by Tim Russ.

Tuvok also reappeared in the short stories "Bitter Fruit" and "Empathy", contained in the anthology Shards and Shadows, as well as the novel Rise Like Lions. As with his primary universe counterpart, he is married to T'Pel and has three sons, including Sek, and a daughter named Asil.

Mirror Tuvok was also featured, on a mission with Bashir, in the DS9 comic book "Enemies and Allies" in "Sole Asylum, Part One" and "Sole Asylum, Part Two", which were written by Tim Russ.
