Do you think T'Pol...

... survived the destruction of Vulcan?

There are less than ten thousand Vulcans left... they are now an endangered species. Do you think T'Pol would be one of them? At the time of Vulcan's destruction, she'd still be a spry 170, plenty young enough to still be around. Maybe an appearance in Star Trek (X)II? (Probably too fanboyish for a movie, but it'd fit right in if nuTrek were a weekly series...)

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

She probably wasn't on Vulcan. She seemed pretty assimilated into human culture, so I wouldn't be surprised if she's on Earth or some ambassador somewhere.

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

There were probably Vulcans turning their noses down at her, as well. Life would have been nicer elsewhere. I liked her alot; I'd love to see her again.

If T'Pol isn't in Star Trek XII, I'm going to boycott it.

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

I think it'd be difficult to get Jolene Blalock back and to put her in makeup. Better to have T'Pau cameo with old Spock.

That "abomination" is the only remnant of old Trek still present in Abramsverse continuity, I remind you.

Old Spock. Enterprise killed Star Trek on TV, it should be kept away from the reboot.

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

"Enterprise was a great show.. but that was another life."

Yes T'Pol was a very flawed Vulcan who found living among other races to be a relief. I think she is a prime candidate for not being on Vulcan during it's destruction. If we saw her in STXII I would be supremely happy. For one thing I would like to know what she was doing at that age! (With Trip long dead..)

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

I find it highly unlikely that theres just 10,000 Vulcans left, i think it meant that 10,000 managed to escape Vulcan before the planet was destroyed.

I object!

The novels show Trip being alive in 2238. And I don't give a flying f#ck about it not being canon.

I'm guilty of bleeping over dates. How old was he supposed to be then?? I just assumed he had died by TOS time (not assumed he died in TATV which as we all know is not true.)

A T'pol cameo is far more logical than a Willam Shatner/Old Kirk cameo.
