Sad, yes. But also fills me with possibilities for the future. I just hope the writers are up to it. Hope the entire cast returns. I also hope the Enterprise encounters Romulans again. That would be interesting.

Without the logical and scientifically interested Vulcans, the Newniverse Federation could become more aggressive...

I can definitely understand why people are upset, or getting sadder about a fiction planets destruction.

I had a similar feeling about Data in Star Trek Nemesis. I understood they had done it for dramatic reasons, but this didn't stop me from nearing screaming "Shuttle Data!" Subseqeunt viewings made me sad about it and I kind of developed a way to get Data back, but keeping within the rules of the events of Nemesis have to happen.

However, now with what they've done in Star Trek XI. I now think "stuff it", I'm gonna take the "Prime ST Universe" copy it, paste it over there and start editing. What I like stays, what I don't goes or gets adjusted, things that were vague get defined, etc.

Folks, you can do similar with the new Star Trek XI Universe. Anything could have happened during the Narada's attack on Vulcan. They might have not got the red matter down the chute in time. Spock Prime might have done something to it to make it harmless. Kirk/Sulu/Olsen's attack on the drilling thing might have gone better.

All I'm saying is, if you don't like the destruction of Vulcan. It doesn't have to happen. Have a play with the events of the movie and make your own interpretation of it.

It is a multiverse after all.

It was a little sad seeing the planet imploding/getting sucked into the black hole. :/

Poor Spock.

It was a damn powerful scene, especially with Spock's log entry afterward. It was well-played, I feel, and it's good that it managed to be a hit in the gut for so many viewers. I don't want a movie to be all sunshine and rainbows, where the only emotions evoked are the good ones. I like it when a film can make me feel, not just make me laugh or smile.

To Me Spock was Vulcan. I have not seen or liked any of the vulcans in any of the shows after TOS especially Tuvok
So I really did not feel the loss that much

i'm sure they can find a planet for Vulcan. here's a name New Vulcan. but what if nero might have done something good. think of it finally prime spock's wishes might come true in this universe where there can be peace between the Federation and Romulans and maybe unifcation between vulcans and romulans.

Wow... that's just... cold.

No one laughed during such scenes in any of my viewings. During the movie's sad scenes, there were sniffles.

However, I can see why JJ kept it light overall. Thinking about Vulcan's destruction is such a downer.

This really is a new continuity.
