Talk:Vulcan

Shouldn't this be a section on the Vulcan page? The Vulcan page needs more fandom and the language of a fictional species on a fictional planet isn't something completely unrelated that would need disambiguation. A Vulcan language developed by fans seems to be exactly what is missing on the Vulcan page. --Doro 17:03, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

ETA: Argh! You were fast! Could you move he talk page too? --Doro 17:05, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty quick. ;-) This Vulcan page sure needs more fannish love. --Mrs. Potato Head 17:12, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

I propose taking off the "needs more fandom" template. And if folks don't agree, what are their ideas about what needs to be added? --Mrs. Potato Head 13:28, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

This page still has too much canon (it makes the page boring!), and it feels disjointed, disorganized, and incomplete. Any folks want to take a stab at improving it? --Mrs. Potato Head 14:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

A bit was removed that I think would be relevant somewhere: The destruction of Vulcan and the consequences for the surviving Vulcans, most prominently Spock, often plays a central role in in today's fanfic featuring this newest version of the characters. Maybe appropriate for a Vulcan fanfic in Star Trek Reboot section? or part of a general fanfic trends section on the Star Trek Reboot page?--æþel 17:54, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

"Amok Time" quote

I can think of no better place for T'Pau's words than at the top of a page on Vulcan. They impressed millions of Star Trek fans over the years and were part of what made us all see Vulcan the way we did. DJs used to play the sound clip over the intro to "Heart and Soul", by Carol Decker's band T'Pau. I could go into detail, but if the problem is it was unattributed, that can be fixed. --KTJ (talk) 18:50, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

That's fine. I just thought they needed to be anchored to something. --MPH (talk) 19:15, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
Sure. I found myself writing a whole essay on that line. It gave you a sense of a whole huge ancient civilization, even older than Hureyra on earth; that there was much more to Spock than just "that guy with the pointed ears". I think those words and that episode were where Star Trek stopped being just intelligent entertainment and embraced a serious sense of something deeply real and archetypal. According to Nimoy, everybody working on the show felt it, even the stagehands. --KTJ (talk) 20:35, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
