    Actually, no need to go even there. Neither Stonn nor T'Pring's families were in attendance either. It's a mating ritual...I could see how seeing one's Vulcan son's blood boil would make any Vulcan not undergoing the Pon Farr MOST uncomfortable to be around.

    ...Of course, it could be that T'Pau was T'Pring's mother. :devil:

    And Stonn's. :devil: :devil: :devil:

    And just why was Stonn there anyway? You don't bring a date to your own wedding!

    Don't you remember your episode?

    Stonn: "No! I was to be the one. It was agreed!"

    Was that written by a female, by any chance? That plotline absolutely reeks of Mary Sue-ism.

    Yes, the story was written by a female. Yes, I am aware of the "Mary Sue" concept.

    However, don't judge this on my brief description of just ONE story in the series. The relationship between Spock and Ruth had been building for at least half a dozen issues -- that's about 10 to 15 stories. And Ruth Valley is a Human/Antari hybrid, telepathic, an empathic healer, and a competent "jack of all trades" scientist. She's a musician, and her Jewish faith is very important to her. However, this is not a "Mary Sue" situation; the Valjiir stories were written by a collaborative effort of three people -- one of them a man.

    I was joking. Though it's also bad form to bring another groom. ;)

    Vulcans admitting in a court of law that they had been tricked by humans! Utterly illogical! :rommie:

    As "fascinating" as that is, this thread hasn't had a reply in almost 10 years!

    Please reacquaint yourself with the board rules (linked at the top of the forum).

    Thanks.
