Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

There isn't a single TOS, TAS, TNG, DS9, or VOY episode with scenes on Vulcan that couldn't have been set in the JJverse with at most only minor alterations. Or, if there is, I can't think of what it would be. ENT is already in the JJverse.

Even Amok Time could have easily been transplanted to New Vulcan. The line about the wedding site having been in Spock's family for generations was a throwaway line. Nothing depended upon it. Yesteryear took place when Spock was a child, and we know that Vulcan still existed then. The TNG episodes where the Enterprise-D went to Vulcan didn't depend upon the planet actually being Vulcan. Not even Amanda had to be there. Arguably, the episode that takes the greatest hit (over Vulcan-related issues) is Journey to Babel, but only because Amanda wouldn't have been there. But losing one episode in hundreds (or heavily rewriting it) is hardly what one can call significant.

The fact that hypothetical 25th century stories might be altered is of no significant consequence to anything we've already seen in canon continuity set in the Prime Universe.
