Re: Klingon Blood

Did we ever learn whether Amanda actually carried Spock to term? Some potentially human woman gave birth to him in the ST5:TFF flashback, but we never got confirmation this was Amanda (and the actress obviously wasn't Jane Wyatt)...

Re: Klingon Blood

It's possible he might have been transplanted in the womb to a more "compatible" Vulcan host. Then again, I would take much of what we saw in that scene with a grain of salt. I got the impression that it was supposed to be Spock's own personal assumption of how the birth happened based on his own baggage, and I highly doubt a race as advanced as the Vulcans would be delivering babies in a cave without the presence of any medical instrumentation whatsoever - particularly with the established rarity of a half-Human/Vulcan fusion.

Speaking of ST5:TFF, there is the rather muddy provenance of Sybok's birth to a Vulcan Priestess by Sarek. Couldn't ever tell if this was before or after he married Amanda, though. Sybok certainly looks younger than Spock, but then that would make Sarek look like a bit of a philanderer and I'm not sure how that jives with the whole Vulcan philosophy thing.

Personally, I find it best to ignore most of TFF. Makes things easier to swallow...

IIRC, Sybok was older than Spock (despite Nimoy being older than Luckinbill), so Sarek would have been married to the Vulcan priestess before he married Amanda.

Re: Klingon Blood

Ah, cool.

I still like to generally ignore TFF, though.

Re: Klingon Blood

The CGI of the spraying blood never looked very spray-y or liquid-y to me. It was several blobs coming out of the Klingons.

Turns out it was sort of realistic.:

Re: Klingon Blood

In the novelization, Sybok is a good ten years older than Spock. Luckinbill being younger than Nimoy was probably supposed to be explained away as "Full Vulcans don't age as fast".
