These "workers" were described as wearing "beige tunics and loose fitting trousers. On their feet, they wear red boots with curled up, pointy toes. Their hats about a foot tall, and end in a point that curves towards the front. The design is said to be modeled after the headgear worn by Shinto monks. (Starlog #111, October 1986, p. 39)

Fal-tor-pan procession Edit

Attendants Edit

Two attendants to the high priestess were present at the altar during Spock's fal-tor-pan ritual performed by T'Lar at Mount Seleya in 2285. They left the following morning, upon the completion of the return transfer of Spock's katra from McCoy. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

They paused for a moment as Spock reunited with his former USS Enterprise comrades. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

Spectators Edit

Occidental college fountain

Procession spectators

Hundreds of spectators were present for the return of Spock's body to Vulcan. They stood along the stairway leading up to the altar on Mount Seleya as Spock procession passed by. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

Through the magic of film editing, this scene combined on-location filming at Occidental College and Paramount Stage 10. "This particular set will also teem with hundreds of robed extras, including George–who specifically requested to appear as an extra just so he could wear a Vulcan ceremonial robe." (Starlog #80, March 1984, p. 45) Takei's appearance here is also mentioned in William Shatner's Star Trek Movie Memories, which stated that he was a Vulcan-robed extra in the crowd scenes.

Federation Council representatives Edit

These representatives were seated on the Federation Council gallery in 2286. They attended the Klingon Ambassador Kamarag's testimony against James T. Kirk and were on Earth during the incident with the Whale Probe.

After the probe had left, they attended the short trial of Admiral Kirk, and applauded when the charges were dropped. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

These representatives were all played by uncredited background performers.
Two pieces of wardrobe worn by Martin were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. These pieces had tags describing her character as a "Vulcan Noble Woman" or "Noblewoman". [17][18]

Guard Edit

Healer Edit

Vulcan healer, yesteryear

A Vulcan healer

This healer lived in the city of Shi'Kahr during the 2230s.

In 2237, he was summoned late at night, on the 20th day of Tasmeen, by a young Spock, to the L-langon Mountains, to tend to the injured sehlat I-Chaya.

He recognized Spock as being the son of Sarek, and noted that he had heard of the young Vulcan and his Human tendency to perform practical jokes. Spock confessed that he had done one, once, two years prior, but professed to the healer that he would not call him out unless a life was in danger.

After gathering his medicines, the healer transported himself and Spock to the site where I-Chaya laid, via a desert flyer, where he attempted to heal the sehlat's injuries. Unfortunately, the time that had elapsed since I-Chaya was injured had been too long, and he informed Spock that no antidote known could save his life. He then informed Spock that the best he could do for the sehlat was prolong its life. However, he noted that it would be in pain, then added that he could also, if necessary, release him from his pain, but the decision was ultimately young Spock's to make.

After Spock finally decided the right thing to do was to allow I-Chaya to die with dignity, the healer gave the sehlat a shot from his hypospray to put the beast out of its pain. (TAS: "Yesteryear")

The voice of the Vulcan healer was provided by James Doohan.
The novelization of "Yesteryear" (in Star Trek Log 1) describes the healer as a "tall, middle-aged Vulcan" and refers to his toga-like night clothing as "red with garish blue stripes."
He is one of the few Vulcans who have been known to grow a beard, as opposed to the popular trend in the mirror universe.

High Priestess Edit

Vulcan High Priestess ST5

A Vulcan High Priestess

This High Priestess assisted Amanda Grayson during the birth of Spock on Vulcan in 2230. When Spock was born, she gave him to his father, Sarek. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

This Vulcan was played by Beverly Hart.
According to the novelization of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, the Vulcan High Priestess was T'Lar.


Kolinahr High Master Edit

Vulcan Kolinahr Master (Female)

A female Vulcan Kolinahr master

This master guided Vulcans who underwent the rituals to attain kolinahr. She presented Spock with the symbol of pure logic after he underwent the rituals in the early 2270s. However, Spock refused the symbol after his Human side was touched by strong emotions from V'ger. The master melded with Spock and told him he would need to look elsewhere for the answers he sought. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

The Vulcan High master was played by actress Edna Glover.
In Gene Roddenberry's novelization of The Motion Picture, she was given the name of T'sai, in chapter two.


Kolinahr masters Edit

These masters also guided Vulcans who underwent the rituals to attain kolinahr. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Marriage party Edit

Bell-banner bearers Edit

These bell-banner bearers announced the coming of T'Pau to Spock and T'Pring's marriage ceremony. (TOS: "Amok Time")

Both were played by uncredited background performers.

Executioner Edit

Vulcan executioner

A Vulcan executioner

This executioner was a masked man who, at Spock's pon farr ceremonies in 2267, was ordered to kill "anyone showing cowardice" during the kal-if-fee. In this case, it was James T. Kirk or Spock who would be fighting. After T'Pau explained the rules, McCoy misunderstood and thought Spock would have to fight the executioner. Later, when McCoy spoke out of turn again, the executioner positioned the huge blade at his throat, as T'Pau noted, "I can forgive such a display only once." (TOS: "Amok Time")

The Vulcan executioner was played by background actor Russ Peek.
He was described in the script as being "a slightly shorter [than Stonn] but incredibly muscled and fierce looking male who carries an enormous, strangely shaped Vulcan war axe. This is the ceremonial executioner!"


Litterbearers Edit

These litterbearers carried T'Pau and the weapons to the marriage ritual of Spock and T'Pring where she would officiate at the ceremony. (TOS: "Amok Time")

These Vulcans were played by Charles Palmer, Joe Paz, Mark Russell, and Gary Wright.

Master Edit

Vulcan Master

A Vulcan Master

In the 2270s, a young and rebellious Tuvok was sent to a Vulcan master to learn to control his emotions. He often spoke in riddles, which annoyed Tuvok.

Tuvok told the master that he was sent there against his will, for refusing to deny himself passion and feelings he was born with. The master said that he would teach control to Tuvok, who was in love with a schoolmate, which was one of the reasons his parents sent him to the master. The master taught him that love was the most dangerous of emotions, leading to jealousy, grief, and rage. It was through his teachings that Tuvok embraced logic. (VOY: "Gravity")

The Vulcan master was played by Star Trek regular Joseph Ruskin.
He is one of the few Vulcans who have been known to grow a beard, as opposed to the popular trend in the mirror universe.
Ruskin reprised this role for Star Trek: Hidden Evil, a video game that suggests this character is named Si'tann.


Noble Edit

Vulcan delegate 1

A Vulcan noble

This noble was present in the conference at Camp Khitomer in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The noble was played by Mark Gonzaga.


Princess Edit

A princess was Sarek's first wife, with whom he had his first son, Sybok, in 2224. She had died prior to 2229, when he married Amanda. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

From what we know of the Vulcan government, it is curious that they would have a princess unless it was a solely ceremonial or religious title.
Sybok's backstory and Sarek's marriage to the Vulcan princess is considered apocryphal by many sources and individuals, including Gene Roddenberry. The episode "Sarek" also contradicts this by stating that Sarek's first wife (obviously meant to be Amanda) was from Earth. Note, however, that although Spock states Sybok's mother was a Vulcan princess, he never said that she and Sarek were ever married.
The film's novelization gives her name as T'Rea (β), while the novel Sarek states that she divorced him to pursue kolinahr eventually becoming a High Master of Gol (β).

Sarek's aides Edit

Space Central contact Edit

This Space Central contact answered the hails of the Enterprise and granted the starship permission for standard orbit at Vulcan in 2267. He also welcomed the vessel, asked if Spock was aboard and instructed to stand by the ship's central viewer. (TOS: "Amok Time")

This Vulcan's voice was provided by Walker Edmiston. In the script notes it was described as "almost accentless."

Background information Edit

Child Edit

Star Trek III deleted scene, Mount Seleya

The scene involving the Vulcan child

Star Trek III script, scene 276

The scripted scene

This Vulcan child was part of a deleted scene in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, scene 276. In this scene, the child released herself from her father's grip, went to the body of Spock, performed the Vulcan salute, and said, "Live long and prosper, Spock." while the Enterprise crew carried Spock up Mount Seleya.

Katherine Blum was credited in the end credits for playing this "Child"; the revised final draft script listed her as "Small Girl". [19]
