Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

We could keep playing this "would dumbass Marla have slept with *insert random historical person*?". Bonus points if it's a genocidal maniac! My guess is, we could answer each one with "totally!".

Moronic groupies tend to be casted a lot less nowadays, or guys like Loki would have a legion of in-universe fangirls. Imagine a story-line centred around that.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

The cold on Delta Vega damaged the proteins in Vulcan hair that create pigment, leading to the grey hair we saw in 2009. Now, on New Vulcan, that cold is no longer an issue, and the proteins have been able to restore the normal pigmentation and make the hair darker again.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Thing is Spock Prime looked the same when he was still in the Picard era and on Romulus in 2387. The mind meld flashback shot of him speaking with Romulan leaders about the supernova crisis shows the same hair color that he would sport after he was thrown back in time into the altered history.

A fun little theory, but it doesn't jibe with Nimoy's appearance when his character was still in the original 24th century.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Not content with having control of Star Trek and Star Wars, JJ Abrams wants to have control of every Spock from every universe, too! :P

Nimoy himself is dyeing his hair these days but wasn't four years ago. So with Spock Prime, art imitates life.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Now that I think about it... maybe Spock Prime started dyeing his hair because towards the end of ST09 Spock thought he was Sarek - he didn't want Spock to keep being confused.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

I'm going with Tiberius's explanation. I can't come at a Vulcan dying their hair.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Spock dyed his hair so he could pick up human chicks. With the lack of Vulcan females they have to repopulate the species with hybrids so Spock has to look more attractive to the ladies.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

I bet NuSpock and Prime Spock are both banned from breeding with Vulcans, unless they have the medtech to extract only their Vulcan DNA for making baby Vulcans in labs. With a depleted population you don't want to dilute what little you have.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Maybe he just learned a thing or two from Kirk Prime over the decades and decided to make his hair look different and spark both conversations and jokes.

On the bright side, any Spock haircut from any era of any timeline looks more natural than the Kirk toupee.

tumblr crossed my mind also, but Raytas did say "in-universe fangirls".

Besides, some of the Cumberbatch/Hiddleston tumblr drool brigade of my acquaintance are really funny and anything but moronic.

IN SPACE!!!!!

God help us all! O_o

They should mention an in-universe social networking thingie where girlies gather to worship pretty evil-doers. Let's face it, it would totally happen.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Totally. On tumblr you can find fanfic and memes devoted to the surviving Boston bomber and his misunderstood prettiness.
