in the past year have we had any indications that next summer's movie will deal thoughtfully, sensitively, and comprehensively with the concept of a diaspora of the remanent community of a founding member of the federation?


 


or am I totally delusional - this is JJ, its a summer blockbuster, and will be written at a 5th grade level?

I agree Servalan Fan.  I don't think the general main stream fans of the Abrahm's Trek universe will want a detailed account of the vulcan's future.  I would love it however.

I would love it too.  I'm also curious if they reject spock because he is not pure vulcan.  I can see that being a problem if he is mated in this universe

All posts are good thoughts - just one caveat to SF's post.  Those draconian measures would only be necessary if the relatively small ~ 10,000 (or was it 1,000?) survivors of the PLANET Vulcan had to interbreed.  But the various series established that there were other Vulcanoid races including the Romulans of course.  And surely there were Vulcan colonies?


So a really intriguing question would be would the remanent culture or its descendants adopt a different life philosophy.  It's the philosophy of Surak that seems to be most threatened.


And of course it would take a mini-series or series of novels to do the concept justice.

>They're not going to examine the fate of the Vulcans seriously. Star Trek never does. Despite the Prime Directive, the crews of TOS, TNG, VOY just visit 'allien' civilisations,cause havoc and 'love them and leave them'. We never really see what happens to anyone after the end of the episode. Except for Kahn of course.

>It would just take too long to examine what would really happen in Vulcan society? It would be really harsh for the next generation of Vulcans. Women would be forced to have children, Vulcans would be going into Pon Farr without their partners. There would have to be harsh measures in a harsh situation. We don't want to see that in a movie, do we? As someone else had said, we want explosions, we want action, we want adventure.

>Is the general viewing audience going to be interested in a detailled examination of Vulcan society? I know I would be but I can't see people like my husband wanting more than a few minutes of it.

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want. - Spock
