Sarek

NotesImages
TimelineQuotes
Universe : Kelvin Timeline
Name : Sarek1
Species : Vulcans

A Vulcan, Sarek served as ambassador to Earth in the 2250s. Unusually for a Vulcan he married a Human woman, Amanda. Sarek would later claim to his son, Spock, that he married Amanda to assist him in his Ambassadorial duty of observing and understanding Human behaviour. Spock experienced a great deal of bullying and discrimination as a result of his mixed parentage; at school his fellow students conducted "research" into his ability to suppress his emotions by taunting and insulting him daily, attempting to elicit an emotional responds.1

Sarek was a member of the Vulcan Science Academy, and served on the panel which judged his son Spock ready for admission. When the panel leader commented that Spock had done well to succeed despite the handicap of a Human mother, Spock frostily withdrew his application, to Sarek's displeasure.1

As a Vulcan elder in the 2250s Sarek was one of those charged with preserving the essence of the Vulcan culture. When Nero attacked the planet in 2258 Spock managed to rescue several of the Vulcan elders, though Amanda was lost during the attempt. Sarek would later remind Spock of his claim to have married her out of logic before adding that he had actually married her because he loved her.1
