Your shuttle has crashed, who would you rather be stranded with?
 
You've just gone down in a shuttle, you've landed on a tropical planet, with plenty of natural edibles, and lots of clean water around. Weather is not an issue, and there appears to be no hazardous wildlife. Survival will be no issue. Your comm system is working, but it will be several days until rescue can arrive.

The only issues you will have will be boredom and company.

You have your choice of two companions from the Voyager crew: Tuvok or Neelix.

Choose and post your reasons why.

Tuvok.

He won't be insisting on me being cheerful all the time. In fact, he'll probably just leave me alone after awhile.

I'd go with Neelix for sure. You could sit down and have a conversation with him, tell some jokes, share some stories... and if you wanted a break, you could go for a walk on your own.

Tuvok is the most insufferable Vulcan in all Star Trek. He would be an absolute nightmare to spend time alone with. In fact, he would be worse than spending time alone. At least alone you can talk to yourself without someone there, constantly irritated.

I've always found it funny how so many Trek fans hate Neelix... but he doesn't bother me. Tuvok does though- most Vulcans do.

I actually like spending time alone and staying quiet so tuvok would be great for me as its only a few days.

now if it was months/years then at some point im going to need some basic interaction with a friend so that i dont go mad and tuvok would be as useless for that as he was on day 1.

tuvok would be better for me short term but i think id need neelix if it was longer.

I thought Tuvok was your friend Neelix. *tsk* *tsk* :P

This says it all.

Neelix. He never bothered me as much as he seems to have others, especially after Kes left. I also found it amusing how he kept calling Tuvok Mr Vulcan after he introduced himself as "I am Vulcan".

You could have a laugh with Neelix. Tuvok would just go into a medatative trance or something stupid. And Neelix seems like the kind of guy who would leave you alone for a little bit if you asked him to.

I would pick Tuvok as I am not overly sociable so in such a situation a quiet wait for pickup would be preferable.

If this was long term I might consider Neelix, as having Tuvok for company could get boring after a while, also Neelix would probably be the better cook and could make something interesting to eat each day if I was stuck there whereas Tuvok would make really boring Vulcan style soup for breakfast, dinner and tea.
