Captain Tavin of the Vahklas

Tavin was a Vulcan captain in command of the Vahklas, a Vulcan civilian transport ship. He was a member of the V'tosh ka'tur, a sect of Vulcan society that did not believe in repressing their emotions, but instead reintegrating them back into their psyche.

Tavin left the planet Vulcan in 2143.

In 2151, he encountered the Earth starship Enterprise NX-01. Captain Archer invited him aboard for dinner and was amazed by Tavin's pleasant behavior. Tavin explained that he and his shipmates were on a quest to explore feelings and to balance emotions and logic. During dinner, they discussed this concept and enjoyed the food, even eating meat. In fact Tavin requested the recipe for chicken marsala. (ENT: "Fusion")

In the final draft script of "Fusion", Captain Tavin is described as "A Vulcan man with slightly graying hair [....] But he looks very different from any Vulcan we've met... his hair is styled differently, and his clothes are more casual. For a Vulcan, Tavin is uncharacteristically friendly." The role was played by actor Robert Pine.
