Yeah, they really turned things around on the Vulcans, and it doesn't really make a lot of sense. Now, the part about logical training and suppression of emotion covering a very volatile nature makes sense and was indicated in the original series, but there was no indication whatsoever that the Vulcans were warlike, interested in manipulating other species, or scientifically iconoclastic. There were a couple of things they did with them on DS9 that I thought undercut the Vulcans as they had been originally conceived too, but overall, DS9 was my favorite Trek series.
How I identified with that character! (No wonder I like Jack, huh? High intellect and emotionally remote, lol!)I can't forget Spock!!!!!!!!!!!!!
