So, will we get to see the next movie before the world ends?

Things are pretty much in a state where he can appear again or not - depending on Nimoy's 'status'.

A future Vulcan story would not automatically need him. As the film leaves him and us - we know where he will be, what he will be doing.

The rest can be done to suit.

And yep - the Vulcans are homeboys, always have been so if one thinks about it, then it's perfectly reasonable that Vulcan would have a heavy population.

I'm sure there are more that were off world (my take was that the 10,000 figure was from Vulcan directly) but if one thinks about it, if any planet should be evacuated it's Earth.

It actually does come under frequent attack attempts (some of which work) and yet it's population doesn't move an inch.

Do you think Nimoy should play Spock Prime again in the sequel?

I expect there are some Vulcan "enclaves" on many other planets. Even if the average Vulcan enclave is less than a tenth of a percent of a planetary population, it means that well over a million Vulcans are likely yet living throughout the Federation.

(Trying to be gentle here) it is probable in the extreme that he has more years behind him than ahead and he is of that age where, as much as his passing would hurt and shock us, ultimately it would not be a surprise.

Man! I hope I'm not showing too great of a lack of taste here and may regret starting this. But do you think it would be too much of a gamble to make Spock Prime a significant part of the next movie, all things considered? As you know they rolled the dice with the last one in hoping to get Mr. Nimoy's participation but that paid off in a big way.

My apologies if this thread is too morbid, morose or tasteless. I'm sure you'll let me know if it is.
I catch your meaning. While perhaps, a little morbid, it's not tasteless. It's pragmatic, and I'm "down" with pragmatism...That's young people talk for, "I'm definitely for being pragmatic."

I guess the very best thing we can do is pray for Mr. Nimoy's continued health and longevity. Not just for the story line, of course, but because he's such a nice guy!
