  •  Vulcans Have Emotions.... (9+ / 0-)

    They just suppress them.

    There's an episode of "The Next Generation" that features Sarek (Spock's father), where it's revealed that in his old age he's suffering from the Vulcan equivalent of Alzheimer's disease, where Vulcans lose their ability to control their emotions.

    Captain Picard agrees to mind-meld with Sarek to help restore his control & complete his mission. But Picard has to deal with the flood of Sarek's emotions.

    Picard (speaking Sarek's thoughts): Spock... Amanda... Did you know... Can you know... how... much... I love you! I do LOVE YOU!

      Sarek died and just as sad to see Spock's reaction.
