Re: A question about Bendii Syndrome.

It seems Bendii Syndrome is about as common for Vulcans as Alzheimer's is for humans. That's based on the bit of dialogue of Crusher's in the episode where it was first discussed ... she didn't say outright, but she implied it only affects *some* Vulcans "over the age of two hundred".

If it was a Vulcan universal trait, in the same way as Pon Farr, I think it would have been treated differently. In fact, I think it would have been treated in much the same "inevitable" way as older Betazoid women's tendency towards hypersexuality. It wasn't ...

Just a couple of thoughts.
