Vulcan High Command Building, 2154
The building of the Vulcan High Command in the Vulcan capital city in 2154

The Vulcan High Command was the most powerful governmental body on planet Vulcan during the early 22nd century, and its de facto military government.

The High Command was responsible for overseeing military and civilian organizations, as well as Vulcan's space fleet, diplomatic missions, and scientific research.

HistoryEdit

The High Command in 2154

The Vulcan High Command existed as early as 1957. In that year, a Tellarite freighter relayed a distress call to the High Command from a Vulcan research team stranded on Earth. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")

In 2097 the High Command annexed Weytahn, calling it Paan Mokar. (ENT: "Cease Fire").

In May of 2153, the High Command ordered Subcommander T'Pol (via Ambassador Soval) to return to Vulcan rather than join Enterprise NX-01 on its mission into the Delphic Expanse. T'Pol resigned her commission rather than obey. (ENT: "The Expanse")

In 2154, V'Las, head of the High Command, planned to attack Andoria, tricking the Vulcan High Council into believing that the Andorians were developing a planet-destroying weapon based on Xindi technology. (ENT: "Awakening") Following the Enterprise's thwarting of that incident, the High Command was disbanded, ending their diplomatic influence of Earth's decisions. (ENT: "Kir'Shara")

Upon this, the newly instated minister T'Pau began cleaning house, which resulted in many former High Command ships being undercrewed by the time of the Babel Crisis. During the incident, she was only able to dispatch twenty-three starships to add to the combined Andorian-Human-Tellarite intercept fleet. (ENT: "United")

A possible candidate for the role of successor to the High Command might be the Vulcan High Council mentioned in ENT: "These Are the Voyages...", which was apparently powerful enough to be responsible for the decision that Vulcan join the Federation.

Lorot was a member of the High Command assimilated by the Borg. (VOY: "Infinite Regress")

This would imply that either the High Command was re-established in some form, or that Lorot was somehow assimilated before 2154, long before official first contact with the Borg. If the former, then Vulcan Space Central and the V'Shar might also operate under the authority of the High Command. It should be noted that Vulcan maintained its own fleet of ship separate from Starfleet as late as 2368, as seen in TNG: "Unification II"

In an alternate reality, the Vulcan High Command was reinstated sometime before 2258, when Vulcan was destroyed by Nero. (Star Trek)

This would imply that the High Command was either reinstated after 2233, the point of divergence, or it was reinstated in both universes. The latter possibility would facilitate Lorot being assimilated after first contact with the Borg.

The Vulcan's Soul book Exodus mentions a High Command present during the time of Surak. Whether this is a separate High Command or the same organization is unknown.
