In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Starship Mine", there is a character Devor, a mercenary, who was played by Tim Russ.

In Star Trek: Voyager, there is a character Tuvok, also played by Tim Russ. Did they ever make any story connections between the two?

Note: I found this question but it seems to be about Star Trek: Generations, not TNG.

    He also played the Spaceball who said "We ain't found sh*t!". I believe there's no connection between them and Tuvok. – Valorum Mar 14 '16 at 1:25

    @Richard, I disagree. I've watched every episode of Voyager, and I do believe Tuvok never found sh!t. Also, Tim Russ replaced a guy who briefly appeared in the movie Alien Nation, when it became a series and they expanded on an incident in the movie and couldn't find the original actor. I don't believe that guy had any connection to Tuvok, – John Sensebe Mar 14 '16 at 13:36

No, absolutely no connection whatsoever.

Tuvok is Vulcan. Devor is not. Completely different species.

Above: Tim Russ as Tuvok. Notice the ears.

Also, major plot point:

Devor was killed by the baryon sweep at the end of "Starship Mine", two years before Tuvok and Voyager were stranded in the Delta Quadrant.

    There should have been a Voyager episode where a transporter accident sends Tuvok to the Enterprise during the events of "Starship Mine." – Ham Sandwich Mar 14 '16 at 4:12
  • Given that Lore is Data, it's still a valid question. – Valorum Oct 27 '18 at 17:29
