Re: Where did Spock go?

Vuclan live to be 240 years. Spock, being a hybrid and having had an unusual life could live that long.
I believe STXI and its successors will not be matter much after many decades in the future, as the general public gets bored of it(or what ever the reason) and another approach/reboot is tried. TOS will still live on (along with the Prime Universe).

Re: Where did Spock go?

If it's "just a tv show", then why are we here? That goes for BOTH sides of the discussion, but especially the detractors.

When you post stupid shit like this, it's very hard to take you seriously, if someone were even taking you seriously to begin with (except for, it seems, TOS Purist, but it's not like he isn't already biased in slavish favor of any response you make anyway).

I have no personal issue with Warped9. He can believe what he wants. But when he makes his feelings known on a Star Trek BBS, then he's allowing anyone else to either agree with him or disagree with him, and post it to the public forum. Do I think he's a bit obsessive? Well, yeah, but it's not like I'm calling him an "obsessive jackass." And even though I don't agree with him, he's at least posting coherent reasons (to him, anyway), why he feels this way, and the people who disagree with him are posting coherent reasons why they feel that way.

What exactly are you contributing, other than being your usual snarky, arrogant self and writing dumb responses like the above quotes and basically being a troll?

It is a TV show on this planet, but is is a reality in another universe.

The only known exception to this rule on the Internet is Languatron.

Let's face it, there are more obsessive folks than Trek fans.

No.

No.

No.

For many-worlds theory to work, something has to be a possibility in the first place. Space warps, teleportation, artificial gravity, total ignorance of relativity...

It's more likely that there's a universe where giant rabbits evolved to become the dominant species on Earth, and they settle stock market disputes with mortal combat.

A world where we live in peace and explore space (albeit in a different manner) is a possibility, I guess. Just no bumpy-headed humans on every other planet.

That would be the TNG-DS9-VOY universe.

As opposed to smooth-headed humans on every planet. With hats.

- Old Spock wouldn't necessarily have known what year he was in, and at 130+ years old, may not be able to tell a 25 year old from a 35 year old on sight. He does mention how many years in the future he is from, but that is after he initiates mind contact with Kirk.
Except he meets CADET Kirk, and a Kirk younger than when he started captaining the enterprise by a staggering 8-9 years. Old Spock would never assume that a very young Cadet Kirk is the captain of the Enterprise and then be surprised when he isn't.

Once again: We don't know when Kirk Prime became Enterprise captain, or captain of another ship. It's generally assumed (assumption = not canon) that Kirk became a captain to when he was 30, and I can forgive Spock for mistaking a 25 year old for a 30 year old. Easily.

There you're wrong. Because as many people have done you can extrapolate from the background references in TOS. I've done it. Lots of others have as well.

- when you consider how long Spock served with Pike.
- when you consider "The Cage" happening 13 years before "The Menagerie" two-parter.
- when you consider that Kirk says he met Pike once when he accepted command of the Enterprise.
- when you consider Kirk's references to the Academy, the Republic, the Farragut, Tarsus IV, his experience on Neural.
- the details of Kirk's background given the Writer's Guide.
- that TOS tried to depict Starfleet in a credible manner (and thus wouldn't give command of one of its frontline ships to an untested, inexperienced and unworthy person like was done in ST09)

When you put all that together you conclude he can't have gotten the Enterprise before he was thirty and arguably later if you interpret the references sprinkled throughout the series a bit differently.
