    I don't think we've seen any Vulcans so far this season.

    I didn't notice any at Federation HQ.

    This looks like a summit between Fed representatives and Vulcans aboard the Discovery.

    Any theories? Do you think they just turned inward like Earth or will somehow play a larger role in this season?

    My pet theory is they are connected to the interstellar music through their mental powers a la Sarek and Burnham.

    The Vulcans always have one foot inwards.

    Yes, inwards from the rectum when it's not planted in their mouths.

    I'm guessing that they're going to further this "logic extremist" narrative from the first seasons and have their isolationism come roaring back with the Burn. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if they had something to do with it.

    No Romulans, Klingons, Vulcans, Ferengi or Borg for that matter.

    I'm guessing the Vulcans and Romulans finally reconciled some time in the 25th century.

    I am guessing that the Vulcans are separate from the Federation and are in the procress of reunifying with the Romulans. Saru, Burnham and gang will make an attempt to get Vulcans to rejoin the Federation but the Romulans, who historically disliked Humans and the Federation, will try to sabotage the negotiations.

    The Vulcans and maybe Romulans are part of another Federation/ Fleet successor/ splinter group. This one is truly a multi-species association of worlds, with mixed crews etc. Upon meeting with Discovery, they will see the error of their ways, reunite with the 'real' Federation, and return to 80 percent human crews, all human admirals, and the Federation president will be a human. (Probably flag guy.) The capital and SF HQ will either be on Earth (after rejoining) or on a new planet named after Earth.

    As it should be! ;-)

    Yeah I expect the "Federation" that Discovery found is not the ONLY Federation in town. I expect Vulcan/Romulan reunification to have been done for 500 years by now. If they really are in the Prime timeline the destruction of Romulus should have helped with that.

    just the like the Galactic Empire in star wars, we might see different Federation remnants pop up here and there. but while the Burn did screw over the Federation, all species were affected by it.

    If Michael doesn't find recorded messages Spock left for her telling stories about his life up until 2387 I'm gonna be sad.

    There IS a rumor floating around that there is a holospock recording from Spock in Unification III...........some say it's a CGI Nemoy, some say Peck, and some have speculated Quinto.......I am looking forward to the next few episodes for sure to see if any of that is true.

    I wouldn't be suprised of different factions out there, The federation was Thousands of light years across, and travel became difficult, so something like the Roman Empire, it splintered. with each claming to be the one true Federation. Now most would still keep up the traditions, but some would probably go "Warlord" and me dictatorial and be bad guys.
    Vulcan?
    Probably like Earth, cut off, and looking inward.

    I'd love it if they did something neat, with Michael watching some long-form holo-log, starting with Lieutenant Spock (Peck in Discoprise Uniform), transitioning to Captain Spock (CGI Nimoy with some archive voiceover footage), and ending on old 2380s Ambassador Spock (CGI Nimoy with some somber final line). I don't know if Deep Fake Voiceover technology is good enough to have a convincing Nimoy-sounding log that ties into the episode, or if they would have to use vague, unrelated sound bites with Michael summarizing later, or just have Peck narrate the whole thing from a third person POV (although that really wouldn't showcase the aging like switching to Nimoy would).

    I realize he's not an actor and would probably refuse the role if offered it, but I think it'd be cool to see Adam Nimoy as a hologram of Captain/Ambassador Spock.

    Nah, they wouldn't do that. It's much more likely to be Peck, esp. since he's already been a DSC cast member.

    I think I was half asleep when I read the title of this thread ...

    I was trying to figure out what the heck I missed in last week's episode that involved STATUES of Vulcans. ???

    They might simply have her look at pictures like Picard in the Borg cube episode.
    The badge we see in the preview for Unification III is a huge hint for what happened to Vulcan.
