I don't really see any "seeds" for Ponn Farr, that's a definite possibility too, IMO.
I kinda liked the idea of Spock's rage-out towards the end of STID being related to Pon Farr, but I think the ongoing comic pretty much destroys that idea.
I know people say the comics are supposedly canon, but I don't take them seriously. I think if the TPTB really
want to do a particular storyline, they will, regardless of what's in the comics.
But now that I think about it...we've seen Spock have some kind of a major emotional meltdown for two films in a row now. It would be nice to have at least one movie where Spock doesn't
go into some kind of rage. Sure, it's important to see glimpses of his emotions now and then, but if the character keeps having these big emotional outbursts in film after film after film, then he stops being Spock. He'll just be a human with pointy ears and a bad haircut.
