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

121, according to memory beta. Not much of a stretch, considering that Archer (five years older than Trip) was still alive in ST XI, and according to that computer screen seen in "In a Mirror Darkly," Archer died in 2245, at age 133 (still younger than Bones was in "Encounter at Farpoint").

WELL THEN.. obviously Trip and T'Pol are living on some colony world. Together. Not blown up.

Does this mean we get to see TRIP in STXII?!

Whoops, looks like I've overseen one thing. The destruction of Vulcan occurs in 2258, which could mean that in the prime universe Archer died from an unnatural cause (2245), in some accident that never happened in the new timeline (perhaps in the prime timeline, Robau killed him ).

Still, if Archer is still alive in ST XI at the age of 146, 141 year old Trip could easily still be alive too.

Imagine what 170 years of gravity has done to those boobs.
No catsuit for T'Pol in XII

Well --. How lonely are you?

Although I only had a passing interest in ENT, T'Pol seemed to be the Vulcan I'd vote "most likely to go all Sybok" on us. Getting to know her character presented an interesting juxtaposition to how we saw young TOS Spock deal with human culture.
If she were around to have anything to say about the recolonization and repopulation of Vulcan, I'm sure it would be an interesting point of view.

Re: Do you think T'Pol...

So I've been wondering, much has been established about Vulcans, canonically speaking. We know they are a long-lived race, and therefore one from the 22nd century could have been alive in the 23rd century. And since Abrams and his cohorts are saying they'd like to provide various links to the other Trek series, this could be a perfect link to Enterprise. Have a scene where Kirk and Spock enter an alien night club in search of Trek XII's villain. While they're looking around, they pass by T'Pol. You know what would make this scene even better? Have T'Pol wearing a sombrero. The potential is awe-inspiringly awesome.

Discuss.

If the writers want her to have survived, she will. That's all it takes.

And a T-shirt saying "CANON VIOLATION."

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.

Me too!

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...)
She may have been killed. But her adult niece/daughter who looks just like her may still be alive and catsuiting around in her stead.

Good point. But how about her's and Trip's, lets say, grand daughter played by... Olivia Wilde?

I object! The novels show Trip being alive in 2238. And I don't give a flying f#ck about it not being canon.
Indeed; as evidenced by myriad bbs avatars and posts in the ENT forum: NOT dead!

Gawd, I dislike ENT's final episode. I don't usually put an "X" through anything Trek, but I will accept any rationalization.

Of course she survived! She was on Rigel III at the time, having belly fat injected into her lips.
