Unhappy Are You Increasingly Sad About Vulcan's Destruction?

I find myself feeling a bit sadder about Vulcan's destruction than I was yesterday. It's weird to be sad about the destruction of a fictional planet, but there it is.

A few questions: Were you ever sad about Vulcan's destruction? If so, how sad?

And also, do you feel sadder about Vulcan's destruction now than before?

I think it's just starting to hit home with me.

I knew it got destroyed ahead of time but when I actually saw it I was more like, "HOLY ****! OH NO THEY DI'NT!!!" I'm not all that sad about it, tbh. It was kind of a boring planet. I would have bashed my head in just to have something interesting to do if I had to live there. I'm sad about all the people that senselessly died but not really the actual planet itself.

*hides*

I, too, am thinking about all the Vulcans who died. This is a huge loss for the the Galaxy, and not just the Federation. Who knows what other races there are whose fates they helped change? The Vulcans were advanced when Earth didn't even know that stars were different from planets. They were the first to establish contact with the Earth. The were like Earth's protectors -- overprotective, perhaps, but still our great and powerful friends. Our first and perhaps our best friends.

Now, in this continuity, most of them are gone.

It still hasn't sunk in yet and I saw it on Thursday. Just doesn't seem real/right. How could they do that to them?!!?!

I'm not really sad about it, because it still exists in the Prime Universe.

Kind of sucks to be a Vulcan in the New Universe though...

That made me laugh really hard for some reason.

I did not know Vulcan was going to be destroyed when I saw the movie the first time...surprised the heck out of me! I kept thinking "but there's a whole planet full of people down there."

And, I agree with Star Trek Viewer- without the Vulcans, the Vulcan Science Academy, their diplomatic expertise, etc. I think the Federation will be hurting for years to come. Most Vulcans will go 'home' to the new planet and do what they can to help re-establish the race, their culture, knowledge base, etc. I'd expect very, very few Vulcans to remain in Star Fleet.

I hate to see our Vulcan friends in this fix. Should be interesting, though.

Actually it really never bothered me in the least. Seeing it on filmd wasn't painful at all, and no, I'm not sad over it.

I know Vulcan lives on in the ENT/TOS/TNG/DS9/VOY universes.
