Vulcans are a humanoid species in the fictional Star Trek universe who hail from the planet Vulcan, and are noted for their attempt to live by reason and logic with no interference from emotion. On early Star Trek original series (TOS) episodes, they were sometimes referred to as "Vulcanians." They were the first extraterrestrial species encountered by Humans, and later became one of the founding members of the United Federation of Planets. Vulcans are featured in all six Star Trek series, four of which featured a Vulcan as a main character. Image File history File links Emblem-important. ...

The main differences in the depiction of Vulcans from that of Humans are their arched, upswept eyebrows, and the top of their ears' pinna, which tapers into a point. Vulcans, like Humans, display different races within the subspecies, which are comparable to Human races. This means Vulcans may be played by actors of any race or ethnicity. Most caucasianoid Vulcan characters typically appear with a subtle greenish hue to their skin, much as Human Caucasians have subtle reddish hue to their skin.

Vulcans prefer higher temperatures than Humans do. In the TOS episode "The Deadly Years", when Spock was affected by rapid aging, he noted how cold the Enterprise seemed, and responded by turning the temperature in his room up to well above 100 °F (38 °C). Vulcans are also seen to be able to breathe a much thinner atmosphere than Humans because of the atmospheric conditions on their homeworld.

Vulcans possess an inner eyelid which protects their vision from bright lights, a physical adaptation that evolved because of their long-term exposure to desert conditions. Spock's inner eyelid was activated in the TOS episode "Operation: Annihilate!" Although the intense light Spock was exposed to caused temporary blindness, his inner eyelid prevented the blindness from being permanent. It is also mentioned in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "The Forge"; during a journey across desert terrain, T'Pol says her inner eyelid protects her eyes in lieu of wearing sunglasses.

Although Romulans are descended from the same ancestors as Vulcans, they differ both in physiology and in behavioral customs. Over the centuries, Vulcans developed a culture dedicated to the complete mastery of logic, learning to suppress their once-violent emotions in nearly every aspect of their existence. Romulans, on the other hand, embraced their emotional natures. Furthermore, a minority of Vulcans are depicted with a small V-shaped ridge above the bridge of their nose, similar to Romulans. Romulans are a fictional alien species in the Star Trek universe related to Vulcans. ...

Pon farr

Main article: Pon farr

Periodically every seven years for males and bonded females, Vulcans experience an overpowering mating drive known as pon farr. Once triggered, Vulcans must have sexual contact with someone, preferably their mate, or else face insanity and death. Pon farr is a condition in the fictional Star Trek universe that induces the desire to mate in an adult Vulcan. ...


If a mate is not available, there are two other options that will relieve the effects of the pon farr. The first is meditation where the Vulcan must overcome the urge to mate through mental discipline. The other option is extreme shock; in the TOS episode "Amok Time", Spock believed he had killed James T. Kirk, his best friend, thus providing sufficient shock to nullify the effects of pon farr. When he experienced pon farr, Tuvok of the starship USS Voyager made use of a holodeck simulation, created by Tom Paris, of a temporary mate which resembled his wife to relieve his condition. This holodeck simulation was created because The Doctor was unavailable; the dialog of this episode suggests that The Doctor had prepared a medicine to help Tuvok overcome his Pon Farr. Infection is another mechanism writers have used to induce pon farr in Vulcan characters. For other senses of this word, see Meditation (disambiguation). ...

It is possible for Vulcans to conceive with non-Vulcans: the first known Human-Vulcan offspring was a girl named Elizabeth, cloned out of DNA stolen from Charles Tucker III and T'Pol by the terrorist group Terra Prime. Elizabeth died as an infant because of a flaw in the cloning process, but her existence demonstrated that Human and Vulcan DNA could combine to produce a child ("Terra Prime"). Spock is the offspring of a Vulcan father and a Human mother ("Journey to Babel"). Crewman Simon Tarses of the Enterprise-D was a Human who declared himself one-quarter Vulcan on his Starfleet application, though it was later discovered that he was in fact one-quarter Romulan ("The Drumhead").

When Spock experienced pon farr, it was made clear that only contact with his mate, T'Pring, would be sufficient for him to survive the condition. In Spock's case, however, his pon farr evaporated after he supposedly killed Kirk, and T'Pring announced her intention to wed another man. ("Amok Time") There is little canon reference to Vulcans having siblings, with the exception of Spock, who has a half-brother, Sybok, and Tuvok, who has four children. Canon has never firmly established whether pon farr is a prerequisite for conceiving children. Until T'Pol underwent a virus-induced pon farr in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Bounty," it was not established that Vulcan females actually experienced it; T'Pring showed no apparent signs of the condition in "Amok Time."

When Vulcans first experience pon farr has not been established.


Although it has been mentioned several times in the canon that pon farr occurs every seven years, it has never been established if this is truly a recurring event or only happens a limited number of times. Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry said in a 1968 interview that the idea behind pon farr was inspired by African rhinoceros' alleged mating practices, wherein a female of the species dies once every five years after mating with the entire male herd population.[citation needed] In the TOS episode "This Side of Paradise," Leila Kalomi hints at having had a special relationship with Spock some six years earlier, which may suggest an encounter between them during pon farr. Likewise in the film Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, the regenerated adolescent Spock went through at least two pon farrs at accelerated speed.

Mental abilities

Many Vulcans are contact telepaths, and have been observed taking part in a number of telepathy-related actions and rituals. Telepathy is the communication of messages or thoughts directly from one mind to another. ...


Mind melds

A procedure known as a mind-meld involves physical contact with a subject (though instances of mind-melds without contact have been seen), making it possible to share thoughts, experiences, memories, and knowledge with another individual. Vulcans can perform mind melds with members of most other species, most notably Humans, with Jonathan Archer being the first known Human participant in such a ritual in 2154. Even the Earth Humpback Whale can be successfully melded with. The Ferengi are one of the few races known to be impervious to the mind meld; mentally disciplined Cardassians may also be resistant to mind melds if properly trained. It is un-established if this potential ability is inherent to Cardassians, or if members of any race could be trained to resist a mind meld. Machines, such as the Nomad probe, have been melded with even if only through complete contact. Though not canon, in the Star Trek: The Animated Series episode "One of Our Planets is Missing," a touch-less melding of a gaseous nebular entity was depicted. In the Star Trek science fiction universe, Humans/Terrans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are one of the races undertaking interstellar travel. ...

Mind melds have been used to erase memories, as Spock performed on James T. Kirk in the TOS episode "Requiem for Methuselah". Mind melds can also allow more than one mind to experience memories and sensations, and sometimes even interact with the memories, as seen in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Flashback". James Kirk redirects here. ... The starship Enterprise as it appeared on Star Trek Star Trek is a culturally significant science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry in the 1960s. ...

Flashback is the name of the 44th episode of Star Trek: Voyager, the second episode of the third season. ...


The use of the mind meld was taboo for a period of time. In the Vulcan timeline, this changed when experienced melders were shown to be able to cure Pa'nar Syndrome, a condition passed on by melders who are improperly trained and claimed to be incurable by the Vulcan government. Within a week of the Kir'Shara incident in 2154, the stigma against mind-melders was evaporating, and sufferers of Pa'nar were being cured in large numbers. By the mid-23rd century, the mind meld is a fully accepted part of Vulcan society, and was even used once to rejoin Spock's katra with his healed physical body (see below). Panar Syndrome is a fictional neurological ailment presented in the Star Trek universe. ... For the Vulcan homeworld, see Vulcan (Star Trek planet). ...


As originally depicted in TOS, mind-melds were considered dangerous and potentially lethal. Over the course of the original series, however, the element of risk was no longer mentioned, although it was revived on Star Trek: Enterprise with the revelation that Pa'nar Syndrome can be transmitted this way. The starship Enterprise (NX-01) Star Trek: Enterprise is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe. ...


For a number of years, it was held that not all Vulcans are genetically capable of initiating a mind-meld, such as T'Pol. However, the overthrow of the Vulcan High Command in 2154 revealed that this is not the case, and T'Pol conducted her first mind meld soon after. Commander TPol is a fictional character played by Jolene Blalock in Star Trek: Enterprise. ... In the 22nd century, the Vulcan High Command is apparently a form of military government which controls both the Vulcan space fleet and most of the planet itself. ...


It is not definitively established if all Vulcans possess contact telepathy, though Spock stated, "Limited telepathic abilities are inherent in Vulcanians" (not "some Vulcanians") in The TOS episode. "A Taste of Armageddon". It has been stated (most recently in the ENT episode "The Aenar") that Vulcans, on the whole, have some degree of telepathic ability. A Taste of Armageddon is a first season episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. ... The Aenar is the title of a Star Trek: Enterprise television episode from season four. ...


Some Vulcans appear with advanced mental abilities. For example, in the TOS episode "A Taste of Armageddon," Spock was once able to briefly control the mind of a prison guard on Eminiar VII, and in the episode "The Devil in the Dark", he was able to perform a limited mind meld with a Horta without actually making physical contact with the being. It is made apparent that a touch-less meld is limited in effectiveness compared to physical melds. During more intense melds, the melder is sometimes shown using both hands. Spock's greatest touch-less mind meld was in 2271 when he melded with a representation of Lieutenant Ilia inside the V'ger entity (Star Trek: The Motion Picture). A Taste of Armageddon is a first season episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. ... In the Star Trek science fiction universe, Eminiar VII was the principal planet of star cluster NGC 321. ...

Mind melds have at times been depicted as something from each person involved is shared. In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Sarek," Jean-Luc Picard "shared" his composure with Sarek while Sarek more or less traded his emotional release at the hands of Bendii Syndrome when they melded. The title as it appeared in most episodes opening credits. ... Sarek is the title of an episode from the third season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. ... Jean-Luc Picard is a fictional Star Trek character portrayed by Patrick Stewart. ... Sarek is a Vulcan character in the Star Trek fictional universe. ...


Bonding

When Vulcans mate, a form of psychic bond is created between the partners. The specifics of this have yet to be fully explained in canon. It has been suggested that this bonding is the reason for periodic pon farr. Edgar Cayce (1877 – 1945) was one of the best-known American psychics of the 20th century and made many highly publicized predictions. ...


In the fourth season of Enterprise, as T'Pol began to explore her newfound mental powers, she discovered that she was experiencing a psychic link with Charles Tucker III, sometimes over a range of many light-years during Tucker's brief posting aboard Columbia. This link was so strong that it rendered Tucker the only male aboard Enterprise immune to the mind-control powers of a group of Orion slave girls who tried to take over the ship ("Bound"). T'Pol deduced that she and Tucker established the link when they mated in the episode "Harbinger"; however, it is not known if the actual act of sexual coupling formed this link or if other factors came into play.

Katra

Some Vulcans appear able to "cheat the grave" by implanting their katra, essentially their living essence or spirit, into an object or another person via a form of mind-meld just prior to death. The history and mechanics of the katra have never been discussed in great detail in canon. It was known at the time of Surak, and Surak successfully transferred his essence into a "katric ark" which remained hidden for 1,800 years until it was recovered by a Vulcan named Syrran in the 22nd century. Syrran melded with the ark and received Surak's katra, which guided him into creating the Syrrannite movement which fought to restore Surak's teachings to Vulcan, but was labeled a terrorist group by the Vulcan High Command.

Syrran was fatally wounded by a lightning strike while escorting Jonathan Archer and T'Pol across a desert region called The Forge in 2154 prior to a short-lived conflict between Vulcan and Andoria. He conducted a forced mind-meld on Archer and implanted Surak's katra into Archer's mind before he died. For a brief time, Archer found himself communicating with the long-dead Surak, and Surak began controlling, or at least strongly influencing, Archer's actions. Surak's katra was so strong that it resisted efforts to be transferred into T'Pau, but once the Syrrannites overthrew the High Command, the katra allowed itself to be transferred into a Vulcan elder.

Fal-Tor-Pan

Katras can, on rare occasions, be returned to the body, effectively bringing an individual back from the dead. Such was the case with Spock, who, near the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, implanted his katra into the mind of Leonard McCoy prior to sacrificing his life to save the USS Enterprise. (Such was the strength of Spock's mental abilities that he was in fact able to function normally for several minutes despite depositing his "soul" elsewhere). Following Spock's death, McCoy began exhibiting Vulcan-like behavior and was briefly institutionalized. It was later discovered that Spock's body came to rest on the Genesis Planet after his burial in space, and was regenerated. He was recovered and was taken with McCoy to Mount Seleya on Vulcan where a Vulcan high priestess named T'Lan performed a ritual which removed the katra from McCoy and implanted it into Spock's regenerated body. Subsequently, Spock recovered, although it took some time to retrain his mind to the point where it was prior to his death. Eventually, Spock's original memories apparently reasserted themselves and he resumed his duties in Starfleet. Look up Resurrection in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

In Star Trek: Starfleet Academy comic book (which is not considered canon), a katra staying in a foreign mind for too long can cause the personality of the host to start to merge with that of the katra, potentially causing insanity. When the two personalities become intertwined, the katra cannot be removed, as happened to T'Prell, who died and gave her katra to her Romulan friend Selke, who was then captured and used as a spy for the Tal Shiar before she could return T'Prell's katra to Vulcan. There are some similar effects in canon, as both McCoy and Archer experienced negative reactions to carrying katras, and McCoy's sanity was at issue during his experience. Romulans are a fictional alien species in the Star Trek universe related to Vulcans. ...


Fullara

When Vulcans experience extreme emotional trauma, a ritual known as the Fullara can be performed by elders. The mechanics of the Fullara have yet to be fully explored in canon. T'Pol underwent the procedure at the P'Jem sanctuary c.2136 following a mission for Vulcan Intelligence in which she was forced to shoot and kill a fleeing prisoner. The act of killing face-to-face caused T'Pol to experience a nervous breakdown, and the only way for her to remedy this was to undergo the Fullara, which restored her emotional balance, but left her with no memory of the killing or her emotional state thereafter. Years later, the effects of the Fullara were undone when T'Pol was reminded of these events in the episode "The Seventh," resulting in a near-emotional collapse that was prevented in part by the presence of a trusted friend, Jonathan Archer. It has been noted that T'Pol's increased emotional state, noted in many later episodes of the series, began in earnest from this point. At that point in the timeline, the ritual is considered to be obsolete, but it has not been made clear what, if anything, took its place.

Neuropressure

Vulcans practice a form of acupressure known as neuropressure, which involves massaging and manipulating muscles and nerve centers on the body in order to relieve stress. Neuropressure is considered an intimate act, as some of the postures involved are pseudo-sexual in nature, and can elicit responses similar to sexual arousal and even climax, as demonstrated by T'Pol in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "The Xindi" when Charles Tucker III inadvertently triggers such a response. Specialized training is required in order to properly administer neuropressure, otherwise injury to the recipient can result. Acupressure (a portmanteau of acupuncture and pressure) is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique based on the same ideas as acupuncture. ...

Culture

Emotion and maturity

Vulcans, as a matter of custom and policy, suppress all emotional influence by living lives of rigid emotional self-control through meditative techniques and training of mental discipline. Vulcans are not depicted as having no emotions; although they themselves make this claim, Vulcans are a very emotional people. They developed techniques to suppress their emotions precisely because of the damage they can cause if unchecked. In one episode of Star Trek: Voyager, Tuvok explains that Vulcans' natural emotions are "erratic and volatile" - if Vulcans do not strongly repress emotions, they can get violently angry in an instant. T'Pol once stated that paranoia and homicidal rage were common on Vulcan prior to Surak. Look up Emotion in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

The advanced ritual of Kolinahr is intended to purge all remaining vestigial emotion; the word also refers to the discipline by which this state is maintained. Only the most devoted and trained Vulcan students attain Kolinahr; most Vulcans do retain control over their emotions, but do not completely eliminate them as Kolinahr adepts do. In Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Spock was unable to complete this ritual after receiving powerful telepathic signals from space and experiencing strong emotions as a result. The Vulcan masters conducting the trials concluded that since Spock's human blood was touched by these messages from space, he could not have achieved Kolinahr, and the ritual was halted. A ritual is a set of actions, performed mainly for their symbolic value, which is prescribed by a religion or by the traditions of a community. ...

The term for the purge of emotion is arei'mnu. It is stated that it does not translate properly into any Earth language. In Diane Duane's novel Spock's World, it was suggested that arei'mnu closely translates into "mastery of emotions," but that linguist Amanda Grayson, Sarek's wife and Spock's mother, in her work on the Universal Translator, had mistranslated the Vulcan word to mean "lack of emotions."

Some Vulcans, such as T'Pol, Sarek (in his later years), and Soval, carry their emotions close to the surface, and are prone to emotional outbursts, even without outside influences or illness; T'Pau certainly displayed restrained but definite emotions in the TOS episode "Amok Time," including suspicion of the Human visitors followed by admiration and approval of their friendship for Spock, and contempt for Spock's humanity. There is some evidence to support the hypothesis that Vulcans in close contact with Humans for an extended period of time may become more emotional than Vulcans who do not. Established canon has yet to make a definitive case for this. Sarek is a Vulcan character in the Star Trek fictional universe. ...

Not all Vulcan characters follow the path of pure logic; some instead choose to embrace emotions. A group of renegade Vulcans who believed in this was encountered in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Fusion," while Spock's half-brother, Sybok (seen in the film Star Trek V: The Final Frontier), was also fully emotional. An episode of Enterprise entitled "E²" featured an elderly T'Pol in an alternate timeline who had embraced emotion and allowed her half-Human son, Lorian, to do likewise.

The speed at which a Vulcan matures "emotionally" (for lack of a better term) seems to vary. It has been established that, with a lifespan of more than two centuries, a Vulcan as old as 100 Earth years will still appear, and be considered, relatively young. Vulcans as young as their 30s and even 20s have been shown in mature roles in their society, and acting older than their apparent ages (i.e. T'Pau and Spock). T'Pol, a Vulcan in her 60s, on the other hand, is still somewhat naïve and innocent compared to other Vulcans, and acts very much like a rational Human woman in her late 20s or early 30s.

In the pilot episode "The Cage," Spock showed much more emotion. Number One, played by Majel Barrett, was supposed to be the emotionless character. Although the test audience indicated they liked the actress, they disliked the character because they could not relate to a female who was so "cold." As a result, the character of Christine Chapel was created for Barrett and the "coldness" was transferred to the Spock character.

Family and rituals

Traditionally, Vulcans place high importance on family, placing the will of their family above their own.


Vulcans practice arranged marriage, in which a male and a female are married or affianced as children, with consummation at a later date. Following adult union, it is customary for the couple to remain on Vulcan for at least one Vulcan year before conducting off-world travel (presumably in order to produce offspring), though it is possible for the female to defer this requirement until a later date, upon negotiation with the male's family. The state of pon farr is not required for marriage to occur. Marriage à-la-mode by William Hogarth: a satire on arranged marriages and prediction of ensuing disaster The purpose of an arranged marriage is to form a new family unit by marriage while respecting the chastity of all people involved. ... The planet Vulcan viewed from orbit. ...


A Vulcan female can challenge the proposed bonding by calling for koon-ut-kal-if-fee, in which a challenger for marriage engages the bonded male in a fight to the death. Alternately, the bonded male has the option of rejecting his intended bride and choosing another. It is acceptable for a male to "release" his mate from marriage (effectively the same as a divorce). It is not established whether females have the same option, and T'Pring stated in "Amok Time" that a kal-if-fee challenge was the only way she could legally divorce Spock. Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the ending of a marriage before the death of either spouse. ... TPring is a fictional character in the Star Trek: TOS universe. ... Amok Time is an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. ... This article is about the Star Trek character. ...


The canon has not firmly established a timeline for Vulcan marriages. Spock was in his 30s (at least) before he was called to Vulcan for his marriage ceremony in the aforementioned "Amok Time," while T'Pol was in her late 60s by the time her own marriage occurred, which she had put off for several years in order to remain aboard Enterprise.

It is customary for Vulcan children to undertake an initiation ordeal known as the kahs-wan (sometimes spelled kaswahn), in which they are left to fend for themselves in the desert for a specific period of time. Not all children survive this rite of passage. T'Pol underwent the ritual, while Tuvok experienced a variation known as the tal'oth. The kahs-wan was first introduced in the "Star Trek: The Animated Series" episode "Yesteryear" in which Spock's experience as a child was detailed; however, as the animated series is not considered canon, it has yet to be "officially" established that Spock experienced the ritual.

Contrary to the Vulcan image of expressing no emotion, family bonds can be strong and affectionate just as they are for Humans. Tuvok expressed his love for his wife on a few occasions (without actually using the term), Sarek openly expressed affection for both his Human wives, and a clear bond of love existed between T'Pol and her mother, T'Les. In addition, Vulcans also value close friendships, even with more emotional beings as attested to by the relationship of Spock with James T. Kirk, and, improbably, Leonard McCoy.

Many Vulcan children have pets, most notably domesticated sehlats, which are ferocious man-eaters in the wild. Both T'Pol and Spock had sehlats as children. Although one might consider keeping pets an emotional or even sentimental practice, it is not viewed as such on Vulcan, and may instead be viewed as a practice to instill a sense of responsibility and maturity.

Names

The treatment of Vulcan names has been erratic throughout Star Trek's production history. Early on, female Vulcans, meanwhile, were typically given names beginning with "T" followed by an apostrophe then a "p." The earliest reference to Vulcan names following a set pattern dates back to a May 3, 1966 memo from TOS producer Robert Justman to Gene Roddenberry (later reprinted in the book The Making of Star Trek) in which Justman recommended that all Vulcan names begin with "SP" and end with "K," and have exactly five letters.

Beginning with the Star Trek movies of the 1980s and continuing to today, a greater variety of names have been given to Vulcans beginning with other letters of the alphabet, such as Tuvok, Koss, Mestral, Valeris, and Xon to name a few (Xon being a Vulcan character created by Gene Roddenberry for his aborted Star Trek: Phase II series in the 1970s, and the actress Kim Cattrall, who played Valeris, chose the character's name). There have also been numerous examples of female Vulcans possessing S...k formatted names or variations thereof, such as Saavik and Sakonna.

Vulcans have been identified in the Trek canon by only one name; however, the TOS episode "This Side of Paradise" has a scene in which Leila Kalomi says to Spock, "You never told me if you had another name", to which Spock replies, "You couldn't pronounce it." In "Journey to Babel," Amanda, Spock's mother, admits that she finally learned to pronounce her husband's family name after much difficulty, and only "after a fashion." Continuity writer Dorothy Fontana established Spock's family name in about 1968 as Xtmprsqzntwlfd.

Cuisine

Vulcans are vegetarians, though they are known to consume seafood and were omnivores in ages past. In the Star Trek original series (TOS) episode "All Our Yesterdays," Spock willingly consumes meat; partly due to the effects of time-travel 5,000 years into the past, and partly because he reasons there is no other suitable food available given the harsh, ice-age climate in which they are trapped. Vulcans are repeatedly stated to be herbivorous in the (non-canon) TAS episode "The Slaver Weapon," by the carnivorous Kzinti. Vulcans do not like to touch their food with their hands, preferring to use utensils whenever possible (though there are numerous cases where Vulcans have broken this rule).

Vulcans generally do not drink alcoholic beverages, though they are depicted "indulging" on special occasions or as circumstances warrant. In the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Repression," Humans and Vulcans are seen drinking a Vulcan alcoholic drink called "Vulcan Brandy." In the TOS episode "The Enterprise Incident," as part of his diversionary role during an espionage mission against the Romulans, Spock shares a drink (most likely Romulan Ale) with the female Romulan commander. In a later TOS episode "Requiem For Methuselah," Spock specifically requests a Terran brandy after Dr. McCoy, while serving himself and Captain Kirk, observes that he had no expectation that Spock would be joining them in a drink for fear that the alcohol would affect his logic faculties. In non-canon Trek-related literature, such as the novelization of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Vulcans are even depicted as immune to the effects of alcohol, but become inebriated by ingesting chocolate (this is also quickly alluded to in DS9 when Quark offers a Vulcan client some Vulcan Brandy or chocolate, which he infers something sexual when speaking of the chocolate).

Vulcans in Starfleet

The first Vulcan to serve in Starfleet was former Sub-Commander T'Pol, who received the rank of Commander and served aboard the Enterprise (NX-01) during the mid-22nd century, following her resignation from the Vulcan High Command. After spending a decade aboard Enterprise, she apparently continued to serve in Starfleet following the decommissioning of the NX-01 in 2161, coinciding with the founding of the United Federation of Planets and the introduction of Warp 7-capable starships.

Martial Arts

Although generally adhering to a philosophy of non-violence, Vulcans have developed martial arts and techniques of hand-to-hand combat. Vulcan martial arts are highly ritualistic and based on philosophy, similar to Human counterparts such as karate and Silat. The most extreme example is the koon-ut-kal-if-fee, or fight to the death, described earlier, though one particular discipline is known as Suss Mahn (named for Star Trek: Enterprise producer Mike Sussman).

Many Vulcans are skilled in a self-defense technique known as the "Vulcan nerve pinch" or "neck pinch", which targets a precise location on the neck, rendering the victim unconscious (sometimes instantly, sometimes after a short delay depending on the subject). The mechanics of the pinch have never been explained in on-screen canon. While practiced mainly by Vulcans, it is not exclusive to their race; for example, Jonathan Archer and Jean-Luc Picard are depicted as having mastered the technique after each became involved in a Vulcan telepathic ritual (Archer holding the katra of Surak; Picard having undergone a mind-meld with Sarek). The android Data also displayed this ability, though none of the three characters were depicted using the skill regularly. Leonard McCoy attempted to use the "neck pinch" while carrying Spock's katra in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, but was unsuccessful for reasons unknown. Tongo Rad, a Catullan, employed a similar technique to render a Starfleet officer unconscious by driving his thumbs suddenly and firmly into the sides of the officer's neck in the original-series episode "The Way to Eden".

The "Vulcan Death Grip" was a bluff used in the TOS episode "The Enterprise Incident." Spock pretended to administer it to Kirk to convince Romulan onlookers, apparently unfamiliar with Vulcan techniques, that Kirk had been killed. In fact, Spock had only used a particularly powerful nerve pinch, putting Kirk into a deep unconsciousness that resembled death. Kirk awoke a short time later with head and neck pain, but no lasting injury.

Ethics

By the 23rd century, Vulcans adopted strong ethics that included a taboo on telling falsehoods. There are numerous examples of this taboo being broken by the likes of Spock, who characterized it as "an exaggeration" in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and by Lieutenant Valeris, who willingly deceived her superiors in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

In the 22nd century, Vulcans seemingly also lived by the ethic of telling the truth, but are shown as very willing to lie when necessary. Early in the fourth season of Star Trek: Enterprise, Jonathan Archer says, "Vulcans can lie with the best of them," with the Vulcan High Command's cover-up regarding a secret listening post at P'Jem often cited as a prime example. T'Pol, although initially hesitant to tell falsehoods, eventually began to embrace the idea that telling lies was sometimes necessary, although she also began to lie to her captain regarding her Trellium-D addiction. Following the Kir'Shara incident, T'Pol began to adopt more of Surak's teachings, presumably including the prohibition on lying, although it has yet to be seen whether this is the case.

Monarchy

The planet Vulcan is depicted as having (or having had, at one point) some form of monarchy.

Location

Until a fourth season episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, the planet Vulcan had no positively-established location, although it was known to be not too far from Earth. James T. Kirk and crew travel from Vulcan to Earth in approximately one day in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Vulcan's placement in the Altair system is ruled out in the TOS episode "Amok Time," since it would have been no trouble to drop Spock off on Vulcan before a few days' trip to Altair.

It is speculated on the official website startrek.com that a species that was known on Earth as the gods of ancient Rome or the gods of ancient Greece traveled to ancient Vulcan (named by Star Trek creators to refer to the Roman god of fire), thus influencing both those that would later become Romulans as well as those who remained on Vulcan.[citation needed] Vulcans subsequently practiced a form of paganism; this can be seen in gods of war, peace, and death depicted on the Stone of Gol, as well as the celebration of Rumarie.

In about the 4th century AD, Vulcans emerged from their violent tendencies and civil wars under a philosopher named Surak, who advocated the suppressing of emotion in favor of logic. This period was known as the Great Awakening, and much of present-day Vulcan philosophy emerged from this period. According to the Star Trek: New Frontier book series (like all novels, many do not consider canon), the Great Awakening caused many wars and conflicts to occur amongst various Vulcan tribes; those who supported Surak's cause would become separated from friends and even close family members who did not. For cases in which parents were separated by this, a ritual was created called the ku'nit ka'fa'ar, a battle to determine which parent would maintain their child. AD redirects here. ...

Despite the acceptance of Surak's teachings, generations of imperfect copies of his writings, combined with changes in the Vulcan language over time, resulted in a diluted form of the culture he instituted.


Romulan migration

Surak's views and lifestyle were not universally accepted by Vulcan society, and a portion left the planet for the stars. This migration of Vulcan separatists would eventually become known as the Romulans. Knowledge of the common ancestry of Romulans and Vulcans would obscure into myth over the millennia, and while some Vulcans had direct dealings with Romulans in the 22nd century, the common ancestry would not become widely known until the mid-23rd century.

A great deal of Star Trek spin-off fiction, in particular the novel The Romulan Way by Diane Duane and Peter Morwood, has stated that the leader of the Vulcan-Romulan migration was a close follower of Surak's named S'Task.

It should also be noted that it is not established in canon that the Vulcans who left their homeworld (and eventually became the Romulans) were in rebellion against Surak. All that is officially established is that, when Surak was preaching logic and emotional control, a group of Vulcans left the homeworld and settled on the Romulan planets. Whether they were acting against Surak, or with his consent, has yet to be determined. In the non-canon Vulcan's Soul novels by Josepha Sherman and Susan Shwartz, Surak gave his blessing to these Vulcans who left their homeworld, theorizing that even if his reforms failed and Vulcan destroyed itself in civil war, that some essence of the Vulcan people would survive among the distant stars.

Pre-Federation interstellar activity

Vulcans did recover from the effects of barbarism and turn much of their attention to space travel for 1,500 years.

Return to Surak's teachings

In May of 2154, the Vulcan High Command considered a proposal for Vulcans and Humans to conduct joint space exploration missions. V'Las, the head of the High Command and undercover agent for the Romulans, bombed the United Earth embassy on Vulcan and attempted an invasion of Andoria. He was foiled by the crew of the Enterprise. During these events, the Kir'Shara, a device containing the original writings of Surak, was discovered by Jonathan Archer. This led to the prompt dissolution of the High Command and a reevaluation of traditional values. It also resulted in Vulcan agreeing to stop "looking over Earth's shoulder" in space exploration matters.

Separate Vulcan societies

The Vulcans have a long history of space travel and colonization, and in fact it is possible that the Vulcans are the result of an earlier colonization by the inhabitants of Sargon's world. As a result, there exist several societies and races that are either definitely former Vulcan colonies, or speculated to be related to the Vulcans. The latter category is often referred to as 'Vulcanoid Species.'

  • The inhabitants of Mintaka III ("Who Watches the Watchers?") have been described as a 'proto-Vulcan race'; they have various physical similarities to Vulcans, just as several other races have various physical similarities to Humans; however, superficially, they most closely resemble Romulans, possessing cranial protrusions more characteristic of Romulans than of Vulcans. At the time of the episode "Who Watches the Watchers," Mintakan society was leaning toward an emphasis on logic, much like that of the Vulcans.
  • In the Star Trek: Early Voyages comic book series (which is not considered canon by Paramount, along with all other comic books), a colony of Vulcans exists which was settled before the teachings of Surak and has since lost contact with the Vulcan homeworld. These Vulcans had built gigantic weapons into the crust of their planet, weapons of amazing destructive power which had been conceived of on Vulcan, but never came to fruition there due to Surak's teachings.
  • As mentioned earlier in this article, the Romulans are an offshoot of the Vulcan race.

Relationship with humanity

In the time of Star Trek: Enterprise, Vulcans are often seen to be rather arrogant and cold in their behavior towards Humans. It is explained that after first contact, Vulcan shared technology with Earth, but many Humans, such as Jonathan Archer, greatly resented the fact that Vulcans seemed to be holding back humanity's efforts at space travel. Soval, Vulcan's ambassador to Earth, appeared particularly distrustful of humans, and was often at odds with Archer and his crew. Soval later justified this behavior in the fourth season episode "The Forge": The starship Enterprise (NX-01) Star Trek: Enterprise is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe. ...

"We don't know what to do about Humans. Of all the species we've made contact with, yours is the only one we can't define. You have the arrogance of Andorians, the stubborn pride of Tellarites. One moment you're as driven by your emotions as Klingons, and the next, you confound us by suddenly embracing logic." In the fictional Star Trek universe, the Andorians are a species of humanoids native to the icy moon Andoria, which orbits the ringed gas giant Andor, described in Star Trek: Enterprise as being in the Procyon System. ... Tellarites are a fictional species from the planet Tellar from the Star Trek television show. ... This article is about the fictional race. ...

Soval also explained that, since Earth recovered from World War III far quicker than Vulcan did from its equivalent (in "The Forge" and its sequel episodes, it is said that Vulcans took almost a thousand years to rebuild their society after their last catastrophic war), this alarmed many Vulcans, who were confused as to how to deal with a rapidly growing and emotional society such as Earth's. In the fictional Star Trek universe, World War III was a nuclear war that devastated much of Earth which took place during the mid-21st century. ... The Forge is the title of a Star Trek: Enterprise television episode from season four. ...


After the overthrow of the corrupt Vulcan High Command and the death of Admiral Maxwell Forrest, who sacrificed his life to save Soval from a terrorist attack, the attitudes of Soval, and Vulcan society in general, became more cordial and accepting towards humanity.

Language

The Vulcan language is depicted as developing so much over time that writings from the era of Surak required translation to be understood upon discovery in 2154. Surak is a fictional character of the Star Trek universe. ...


The Vulcans appear to have three written languages; two of which can be used separately or in combination with each other:

  • The most common script on Vulcan resembles a vertically-written chromatic scale, having a central staff line on which vertical spirals and horizontal dashes are written, along with dots in various combinations. While no official translations for these symbols exist, it is assumed that the dots and dashes represent consonants and the spirals are the vowels. The script is written in vertical columns from top to bottom, left to right, like Mongolian.
  • The second script written in the same direction consists of swirly curved symbols, like Japanese hiragana. These first two scripts have been used separately or in combination with each other. When this is the case, the swirl symbols accompany the staff writing symbols as annotation written to the right of the staff (perhaps serving the same function as Japanese furigana and other ruby characters).
  • A third script consists of rectangular blocks cut into geometric shapes. They have only ever been seen on the hulls of some Vulcan ships and bear no apparent relation to the first two scripts.

In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Unification, Part II," Spock meets a Romulan youth who shows him children's toys, marble-sized objects in various shapes, marked with symbols identified as "the syllabic nucleus of the Vulcan language." Spock is intrigued that some Romulans want their children to learn to read Vulcan; the boy says "To prepare for the day when we will live again with our Vulcan cousins."

Vulcan characters are typically depicted as fluent in English, usually speaking it with an American-like accent, though occasionally British and Slavic accents have been heard. The accent is not always consistent. T'Pau, for example, speaks with only a faint accent as a young woman (as seen in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Awakening"), yet by the time she is an elder (as seen in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Amok Time"), she speaks with a thick accent, being played by a Hungarian actress.

Trivia

Blessing gesture that was the inspiration for the Vulcan salute.
Blessing gesture that was the inspiration for the Vulcan salute.
  • Leonard Nimoy felt that the Vulcans represented the Jewish people.[citation needed] As a bit of stage "business" in the episode "Amok Time," he invented the famous "Live long and prosper" Vulcan salute based on the hand symbol used by kohanim during the Priestly Blessing. The gesture actually emulates the initial Shin of the Shema. On numerous occasions, for example in the 1983 TV special Star Trek Memories (which is often syndicated along with The Original Series), Nimoy recounts how as a child, he peeked during the blessing and witnessed the gesture, although it was against the rules to do so.
  • In an issue of DC Comics' Green Lantern series, one of the Green Lantern Corps members has pointed ears. He behaves 'logically'. He has a brief conversation with Hal Jordan (the titular superhero) which ended with a "live long and prosper" and the famous hand gesture.
  • The Vulcan nerve pinch was created for the episode "The Enemy Within." The original script called for Spock to knock the "evil" Kirk unconscious with the butt of a phaser. Leonard Nimoy felt that the act was too reminiscent of a TV western, and thus introduced the famous non-lethal maneuver.

Meanwhile, in the distant past – in the time of Surak a pivotal era in the history of Vulcan when the race was at the brink of total self-annihilation – we follow the exiles of Vulcan, the ships who departed the ravaged Vulcan to give a chance for a future elsewhere.
Their departure was not as smooth as hoped, and in the confusion of the moment their contingent now comprises a mix of Surak's followers (disciples of logic), still emotional Vulcans determined to make a clean start, and a final group of people opposed to the plans of exile.
Certainly the sections in the distant past of Vulcan's history are interesting – after years of watching emotionally-repressed Vulcans practising their logic on the various Trek shows it makes a pleasant change to meet these passionate characters.
