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.
hey..i found some humor in vulcans destruction

more like mental note "if you peeve off a romulan..make sure they think you live on kronos.....xD

I was pretty shocked and saddened by it too, but it's faded as I've gotten used to the idea. It seemed heartlessly cold at first. But as with all new storylines, it'll open out to new possibilities. I'm interested to see where they go from there, where they'll settle, etc. And Vulcan will always exist in other timelines - it'll always be there for original Spock. Not that he ever seemed to have any great fondness for it!

No more than I was about the planet Krypton, or Alderann, or Altair IV.

I was very sorry they decided to destroy such a monumental part of Star Trek and the Federation. I kind of feel like the person who said they were going to "change" it. On the other hand, Vulcan with 10k survivors, does have the ability to restart on the new planet.

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 still say the next film will rectify this destruction of Vulcan. Hey we know Star Trek does this sort of thing .... don't be surprised if they time travel or find some space anomaly that brings it back somehow.

Who knows what they have in store for us next.

Nope. Time travel is done. If they do they might as well start calling it 'Time Trek'.

Let's hope so! Or else....NuSpock goes forward in time to the Prime Universe so now he's a young Spock in old Spock's universe...and old Spock is in young Spock's universe...or he misses somehow and creates yet another universe...

Let's just leave it at the 2 we have.

There has been no residual emotional effect by the actions in question.

That idea is just getting way way way too complicated. Even die hard trekkies would probably go "huh?".

To dwell on their destruction in sadness is the last thing the Vulcans would have wanted for you.
