That's a guaranteed continuity fixer for prequels!
Honestly, I'm not sure there's anything that needs to be fixed. As noted, Vulcans are always in denial about their own feelings. And just because somebody says something about themselves doesn't mean it's literal fact or should be taken as gospel.
We are all unreliable narrators when it comes to our own stories.
It was a joke.
Spock has always had a problem with self introspection.
One could argue that the suppression of all emotional responses in defiance of, and to the detriment of, natural mechanisms is itself highly illogical and the ultimate cause of the violence.
Spocks anger management would be better served by allowing himself a smirk when someone trips on a step.
One could argue all sorts of things, doesn't mean they make much sense in context. As for physical reactions, why do you think all those eyebrow lifts are for
i think if you can accept the whole secret sister angle, this line of dialogue isn't a dealbreaker.
A secret from who?
The Star Trek viewing audience, for the last 50 years
I don't see them as the same Spock. All continuity problems solved! Enjoyment to maximum!
As much as we hate it, we don't count.
Great, one more blow to my self-esteem.
Ennoyment? Is that a portmanteau of enjoyment and annoyance?
Apologies, my autocorrect has died a death
Seems to be a good way to describe a lot of fans' reactions.
There's a meta-Spock holding reality together, they just aren't all aware of each other.
Experiencing and understanding are not one and the same, maybe like many people experiencing psychiatric symptoms he came away with no more wisdom than he had beforehand?
This would especially make sense since we are talking about someone with (at least at this point) a very literal and factual framework for structuring knowledge
Whatever the Red Angel story outcome, I bet Spock would be able to claim that it wasn't obsessive, but necessary behavior under the circumstances.
Yep, and so are his old classmates -- P.J., and Squi, and Handsy Hank, and Gang-Bang Greg.
All Vulcan names, for sure.
Is there any other kind of introspection?
P.J. is short for P'Jem.
Separate names with a comma.
