Re: Where did Spock go?

It was kinda civil a couple of pages ago. I miss that.

We all have our own Star Trek universes, canon be damned--I have several (and being a fan of Philip K. Dick, this is easy for me): one in which TOS takes place near the turn of the twenty-second and twenty-third centuries and exists in a universe devoid of Ferengi, Borg, Hirogen and even my beloved Cardassians; another in which it takes place in the late twenty-third century and feeds into all of its sequel and prequel spin-offs, and yes, one where it is all written by (or at inspired by stories written by) Benny Russell. It's wave and particle and dessert topping and floor wax.

Ultimately, though, if "And the Children Shall Lead" can exist in the same extended reality as "Amok Time," I suppose Trek '09 can exist there too. Probably best if I let that half-hearted olive branch be my final word on the subject.

As usual, though, Dennis, you've given me something to think about.
