I just wondered wether the writers had the idea to make a connection with Irak war.
V'Las = Bush Andoria = Iraq Syrrannites = anti war movement
In ENT, Vulcans are the largest power in known space. they are trusted to keep order and peace in the quadrant.
The parallel with the USA in the real world is obvious.
A vulcan leader want to preemptively strike Andor, saying andor is builind "weapons of mass destruction".

Is V'Las Romulan? We've certainly seen evidence of deep-cover Romulans achieving high office on Vulcan before, and V'Las's question "what about me?" to "Talok" at the end of the episode "Kir'Shara" indicates he was wondering about a recall "home" along with "Talok". --Duane
- V'Las certainly showed a lot of (negative) emotion through facial expression for a Vulcan.--Skon 22:39, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
I edited the image and put up one that better revealed the corruption which was part and parcel of the character. That little twisted smile was a bit of good acting on the part of Mr. Foxworth methinks.--RomulanHand 13:31 UTC, 3 April 2007
Could someone PLEASE explain to me why V'Las is so obviously emotional (hatred, laughter, et cetera), although all other references to Vulcans in ENT clearly stated that at this point they had already completely banished emotions in favor of logic? Furthermore all "usual" Vulcans seen so far on ENT seemed to be not less rational than, let's say, Spock or Sarek. Until the episodes in question no one would have ever thought of seeing a Vulcan smile, for example.
So why does V'Las clearly show emotions? And why is it accepted by every one else in the government? – Ambassador 21:55, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
- Maybe he's unstable or something. Eradicating people who disagree with you is not logical. IT IS GREEN 23:08, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
- Vulcans of the ENT era are following a corrupted version of Surak's teachings. When the kir'shara thing is found the vulcans begin to follow the proper version of surak's teachings. Thats why the vulcans on ENT, especially their leaders show so much emotions. After ENT the vulcans become like Spock or Sarek--Old Pointy Ears 23:20, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
I'd just like to point out that "Syrrannite" is spelled inconsistently in this article. StarTrek.com lists it as "S-Y-R-R-A-N-N-I-T-E". I will edit the errors. IT IS GREEN 19:25, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
