But still, to me (as a Trek fan only) there is some kind of feeling that it's not really our Vulcan since it's in an alternate Universe and the other one is safe and sound.
Of course, infinite versions of Vulcan can live on in our imaginations.
I'm not sure when it happened, but as I grew older I became far less precious about what 'really happened' in an imaginary continuity and got far more invested in whether or not the story I was watching/reading/playing was about real and relateable people. To see Spock taunted as a youth about his mother and then have him witness her death had a real impact, far more than the destruction of his made-up planet.

That being said, I'll probably raise holy hell when (or if) Bryan Singer's Battlestar Galactica movie gets made. There's only one Adama, and it's Edward James Olmos.
