Please Stand By Blu-ray Review – TrekToday

Stories we didn’t get a chance to cover:

Main Mission

I’ve always thought that Sybok was a fascinating and underrated character who was unfairly dismissed by most fans because they didn’t like the movie as a whole. It seems to me that no race is ever all one thing, We’ve seen Ferengi who didn’t have lobes for business and Klingons that didn’t become warriors

The idea of a Vulcan rejecting logic in favor of emotion really makes sense…there were bound to be a few non conformists

“Enterprise” introduced the idea of mind melds and melders being a Vulcan taboo in the 22nd century and “Discovery” gave us the Vulcan terrorists who attacked Sarek. Has the time for a character like Sybok finally come based on the less black and white depiction we’ve seen of Vulcans since “Enterprise?”
