I'd find Tuvok interesting if I could engage him as a survival instructor. Can't say that'd last forever, but at least we'd have a common and interesting subject on which to speak.

The only thing I'd fault Neelix for is his chatterbox nature. Might not work so well if stalking prey.
That's true, Neelix did have a certain flair for salvaging his way out of situations... I'd still put more faith in Tuvok's hundred plus years of experience though
