During his childhood, Spock was tormented by three bullies. They tried several times to elicit an emotional response and said that Spock was neither Human nor Vulcan, and thus "had no place in this universe". On their thirty-fifth attempt, one of the bullies called Spock's father a traitor for marrying a Human female, whom he subsequently called a "whore." Spock grabbed him and pummeled him in one of the skill domes. (Star Trek)
These five Vulcan elders were members of the Vulcan High Council in an alternate 2258. When Vulcan was attacked by Nero and his mining vessel, the Narada, they went into Mount Seleya's katric ark and held a meditation. Amanda Grayson and Sarek were also among them. Shortly before the destruction of the planet, Spock beamed onto the surface and went into the katric ark to rescue the elders, including his parents. Two of them died but the other three safely beamed aboard the Enterprise. (Star Trek)
Head Minister Edit
In the alternate reality created by Nero's incursion, the Head Minister of the Vulcan Science Council presided over a committee to decide on Spock's application to the Vulcan Science Academy. The minister was impressed with Spock's record, but was curious as to why Spock had also applied to Starfleet Academy. Spock explained that it was logical to explore all options, the minister agreed it was logical but ultimately unnecessary, as he and the other ministers had decided to accept Spock into the academy. The minister again praised Spock, but his comment implying that Spock's Human mother, Amanda Grayson, was a "disadvantage" caused Spock to decline his appointment into the Vulcan Science Academy and join Starfleet instead. (Star Trek)
Science Council members Edit
These five Vulcans were members of the Vulcan Science Council in an alternate 2249. Beside the head minister and Sarek, they judged over Spock's future and welcomed him into the Vulcan Science Academy, but Spock refused. (Star Trek)
Background information Edit
A deleted scene from Star Trek pictures the birth of Spock in 2230, and includes two Vulcan midwives who help Amanda Grayson give birth to Spock. The younger of the two midwives asks the elder one why the mother is crying and the elder midwife answers it is because the mother is Human. The two Vulcan midwives were portrayed by Jill Lover and Star Trek: The Next Generation guest actress Fran Bennett. In the film's screenplay, the older midwife was described as being in her "60's".  The deleted scene is available on the film's Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray, as well as in the Blu-ray set Star Trek: The Compendium.
