So I recently finished rewatching Amok Time, and I recall hearing Spock explain to Kirk that the pon farr is part of an ancient tradition that comes even before the time of Surak. This got me wondering about the Romulans, whom we know left Vulcan during the Time of Awakening. Is it possible that the Romulans still wrestle with the pon farr, and that they might retain some of the same Vulcan traditions for dealing with it? What else do the Romulans and Vulcans continue to share in common with one another, in terms of culture and tradition, if anything at all?

They don't. In fact, that's the primary difference between the Romulans and the Vulkans–after they left Vulkan, the Romulans were able to remove the Ponn Farr and their debilitatingly strong emotions through genetic therapy, but in doing so also lost their telepathy.

Logic. Romulans are just less precious and pretentious about it, preferring to apply it to more machiavellian ends. They don't identify with it as much, but because of that they're more effective and balanced. Vulcans ended-up cucked by Humans because of their naval-gazing tendencies. Vulcans are orthodox jews. Romulans are the emancipated, liberal jews of Israel and the US. The orthodox (Vulcans) will ultimately survive, but the liberals (Romulans) will make more of an impact while they're around - ultimately burning themselves out in the process, though.

An interesting angle for post-Nemesis Trek would be unity with Romulans and an integration of Romulans into Starfleet and the Federation, where they quickly edge-out both humans and Vulcans by being able to "pass" as Vulcans. In the end, they disappear though having dissolved into the Federation since they dont ahere to a rigid system like the Vulcans.

In STD, nothing apparently.

You forgot the Founders. Incidentally, if someone's got shoop skills this would look great if it were a changeling rising up out of a sea of Great Link goo.

Uh no, the Vulcan species represents Chinese, and the Romulans represent Japan.

You're a fucking idiot.

yeah, the whole Mao bullshit, and US/china relations were a huge deal at the time for fear of it turning into another cold war situation.

My father used to lament such things. He said the old school bras actually made women sexier without having to even show more skin.

Nixon played a big role in that, but it was the 70's.

I know this was 4 months ago, how the fuck did you figure that out? Unions and strikes are fetish of the French.

>Vulcans: Americas view of Europe in the 1960's (restrained, intelligent, cultured, yet bizarrely freaky every now and then)

>Klingons: Americas view of the USSR in the 1960's (violent, brutal, dumb)

>Romulans: Americas view of communist China in the 1960's (secretive, untrustworthy, inscrutable, would do things the underhanded way even if doing it honestly was easier)

How are you on /strek/ without knowing this?

Thought that was more common knowledge?

It's kind of funny how ENT shits on that notion with Vulcans being more Carthage like than Greek.
