Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Ok, real simple: why is Spock Prime's hair now almost regular color? 4 years ago, it was super white, cause Spock of this era is old......

Either he is:

1) dying his hair
2) some serious Pon Farr is reversing his aging
3) a really odd continuity error


What the heck? That was odd....

Maybe he got it dyed so he could meet some single Vulcan ladies.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

It's not really a continuity error. I mean, you can dye your hair, and while a Vulcan wouldn't usually do so, perhaps Spock felt the need to do so for some reason of which we're not aware. To me, a continuity error would be something like having pointed ears in the first movie, and round ones in the second. Something as simple as hair color over the course of 4 years between two movies doesn't really strike me as an error.

If that were the case, Scotty would be one massive continuity error from Star Trek's one through six.

I didn't even notice that. But I was just shocked to see him in the film... didn't he state that he wasn't going to be in it?

LOL, love the responses..yeah, to me, it was a weird screw up. As far as I know, this was a surprise cameo cause I thought nimoy had said no. I mean, its like 12 seconds, but still. Nimoy is the man!!!!

Got to repopulate the species somehow and Spock has moves from the future and an alternate timeline. Vulcan women love that.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

I went into this thread thinking oh, oh, someone's spotted a continuity error I didn't see, and....wait, Spock's hair?

Well, as long as it doesn't get any more serious than this, we're good, I guess.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

You're all missing the HUGE plot point that Spock's hair reveals. This is an earlier version of Spock and there are now three Spocks in the JJverse. Because JJ is such a greedy guts he wants to win with the most Spocks.

I'll take your two Spocks and raise you another one!

Does JJ want to confuse us into going to see the film more often? It could work... I'm going to see it again just to check old Spock's hair now!

Try to determine whether old Spock is younger than old Spock from STXI. It could be an attempt to change the timeline!
