Thanks. I'm also a LOTR fan and enjoy archery so one day when I was playing around with a Tolkien name generator one of the names I got was mithrilbow and I liked the sound of it. When I saw the IDIC symbol I wondered then if it was just Vulcan set dressing or if we'd be hearing anything mentioned about the concept. Even though I can play around with quotes and previous episodes and rationalize why ENT vulcans act the way that they do I don't feel I should have to. Afterall it is the writers job to tell us the story and hopefully make it fit with the other stories they've already told us, not the other way around. I do appreciate the attempt at added depth because IMO some of the vulcans in later series just seemed like cardboard characters or extras with ear tips. I just wish they would be more clear about why the Vulcan's are the way they are in ENT and not use the Vulcans as a convenient way to further a plotline when it appears out of character. Still, they've got my attention and I'm waiting to see how this all plays out and fits in with later series. Oh and I have to agree that running the script by Lady Conquerer for a final edit would be the logical and ethical thing to do.
