Star Trek: Voyager actor Tim Russ has already reprised his role as Tuvok in Star Trek: Renegades, the Kickstarter-backed pilot episode coming later this year, but now Russ is lending his voice to an upcoming Star Trek Online adventure as well.
The fifty-seven-year-old actor returns to fill the Vulcan role of Admiral Tuvok in “A Step Between Stars,” a featured episode coming in February, celebrating the online game’s fourth anniversary.

STO community manager Brandon Felczer interviewed Russ in a new video released today:
Felczer: “How does it feel to be reprising your role as Tuvok?”
Tim Russ: “After working on Voyager, and since the show’s gone off the air, I’ve actually reprised the role a couple of times… it’s like putting on a pair of old shoes, you know. They’re really comfortable and you can do it very easily, but it seems like it has a life of its own; it just continues to go.”
Russ joins several other Trek on-screen alumni who have participated in the Star Trek Online story, including Leonard Nimoy, Michael Dorn, and Denise Crosby.
