Spock's family Edit

Is T'Pau somehow related to Spock? --<unsigned>

As far as I know of, no. --OuroborosCobra talk 04:36, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Non canon books imply that she is a member of Spocks vey extended family. |\/| /

T'Pol as T'Pau Edit

Originally, the character of T'Pol on Star Trek: Enterprise was intended to be a younger version of T'Pau, but this was later abandoned (possibly due to the name being currently used by musicians unrelated to the series).
I thought they abandoned this idea because implementing it would have meant having to pay royalties to the writer(s) of "Amok Time", who created the character of T'Pau.

I've never heard that particular argument, and as far as I know of it's only ever been used with "Nicholas Locarno"/"Tom Paris." But since they ended up using T'Pau later, it doesn't seem so. Also, the band theory doesn't seem very likely either. I think they just didn't so they could have more options with the character. - AJ Halliwell 20:26, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
Also, they couldn't use storylines that make it appear as though she's done for without the audience saying, "Oh, I know she's going to survive" without messing up continuity. (Pregnant Pause) oh, wait.... Tiberius 10:43, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

ActressesEdit

Can the names of the actresses who played her be included in the article?--Tiberius 04:01, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

The actresses names are in the already in the background section. --OuroborosCobra talk 04:12, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Removed Edit

I've removed the uncited statement that the abandonment of the idea of having a young T'Pau as a series regular in Enterprise was because "the producers would have had to pay royalties to the estate of Theodore Sturgeon (the writer who created T'Pau in 'Amok Time') every time the name was used." I've also removed the uncited sentence, "In referring to the inspiration for her team's name, [Carol] Decker referred to T'Pau as being Spock's grandmother." Both of these statements have seemed to require citation(s) for an awfully long time. Furthermore, while the former statement is probably true (given the now-added quote from Rick Berman), I personally think it's better to stick to what we do know, rather than speculating likely scenarios on that. If there is a citation available anywhere (I personally can't find one), feel free to re-add these statements. --Defiant 12:35, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
