Re: I thought Vulcan was supposed to be a high G planet

Yeah, but in that line we never get to hear how they express it out loud, whether they say point eight gees (or point eight gee) or point eight gravities (or point eight gravity). Saying "gravities" is also done [e.g. http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...d.php?t=418638, "Could people survive at two gravities?"].

Just as an aside, in TAS: Jihad, they say [http://www.chakoteya.net/StarTrek/TAS014.htm]:

KIRK: ... Spock, how long since you've worked out in null-gravity combat exercises?
Then, they say "null-gravity" instead of "zero gee" (which of course has no bearing on the point eight chatter).
