We all know Vulcans have elaborate family clan structures, right?  And a lot of the survivors won't have any family left.  I've been thinking about that, how they'll probably band together to form clans/families from whatever fragments are left, so a lot of clans won't survive even if there are survivors from the clan, because they'll just get absorbed.

I realized I'm thinking about this too much like a human.  Vulcans live twice as long as we do; they probably have a fertile period twice as long, as well.  Raise one batch of kids as children of one clan, and once they're out of the house, raise another batch of kids as children of the other.  Bingo, both clans preserved, and you have a population explosion as well, which they need.
I posted the below to my journal couple of days ago, and then realized the question was appropriate for this comm:
So, that whole thing where conventional Federation warp drives were tearing apart the fabric of space-time, but, it appears, some solution must have been found for the problem, since someone thought it was a idea to build Voyager, with a cruising speed above Warp 9. (The environmental impact of gasoline distortion of the fabric of space-time by conventional warp technologies was a big part of the plot of the finale of TNG.)

movie spoilers. OMG, people, go bittorrent the movie so I can stop cutting! )

Then today I was reading [personal profile] anne_higgins' No-Win Scenario which is not particularly germane to this comm, but which mentions that the low-level species wide telepathy was putting the Vulcans into a tail-spin, and I wondered if a large number of people from a different telepathic species would be helpful or harmful.

What do y'all think of either or both ponderances?
