Fan Theory: The History Of The Federation Is The History Of Sarek's Family

    Can I just point out that Spock tried to get the Romulan Senate to listen to Nero about the dangers Hobus' nova posed? And that Spock only failed in saving Romulus and the entire Romulan command structure because the Vulcan Science Council forbade him to? Spock had to spend precious time illegally procuring Red Matter and a ship to get to the nova in time (ultimately failing due to the delay caused by the Council's xenophobia).

    That's Spock's version of the story. Nero tells it differently!

    The conspiracy theory is an obvious joke, but the fact is that Sarek has had a major role in the Federation's growth not only in his lifetime but in his son's lifetime as well. If T'Pau is indeed Sarek's mother, as opposed to being an aunt or cousin or something, that adds a third link to the chain, and one which coincides with the birth of the Federation.

    Since Spock is about 160 in JJ Khan, he would have experienced eighteen pon farrs since his divorce. He looks very much alive so he must have had help, and perhaps he left behind a trophy or two. Saavik is often considered to have 'aided him in his time of need' and potentially gave birth to a quarter-human, quarter-Romulan, half-vulcan Baby Spock. This is never confirmed, but it was supposed to explain why she didn't go to help save the whales: Vulcan morning sickness is rough...

    But even if he didn't, it will turn out that Sybok did, or Sarek's brother, or T'Pau's niece's daughter's cousin's college roommate will turn up in Future Trek. Somehow it will center around Sarek's legacy.

    That's beginning to remind me of a list that was going around during the days of Fidonet: "Things You'll Never See In X-Men". One item on the list:

    "A new mutant turns up at the Mansion who, after extensive genetic investigation and time travel, is revealed to be totally unrelated to Scott Summers in any way."
