    Spock and pretty much any Vulcan makes sense for them to be bi. I am surprised it is not already a thing.

    I see ZERO problems with that.

    And if Gene was onboard back in the day ... by all means, go for it!

    It will make the least sense for Vulcans to be BI because Vulcan experience Pon Farr every 7 years and they are required a mate of the opposite sex to make sure they reproduce.

    Also of all the Star Trek races, Vulcans have the most reputation for been very conservative in values and thought, which again makes them the least candidate race for them to be Bi

    Bisexuality doesn't interfere with Pon Farr at all. Because it means you also are attracted to the opposite sex.

    Sex and intimacy are two very different things, so it's not difficult to imagine a Vulcan having sex with a member of the opposite gender because it's a biological necessity while having romantic feelings for another of the same gender.

    And sex and procreation are separate things as well, and the latter is not stated to be a necessity for Pon Farr or else Spock would have had dozens of brothers or sisters and sired dozens of children himself...and so far as we know he doesn't.

    Again, I see Vulcans as being 'attracted' to the mind and logic of others, not their gonads.

    I think are a good summary of my opinion.

    To me, if Spock and pretty much any Vulcan were bisexual, it would be logical to me because of the cultural norms and values they have as a race.

    They aren't human and don't have human systems clogging up their ethos. Makes sense that it would be applied to sexuality.

    And to take it further, the more I think about it the more I realize that being polyamorous is actually very logical/pragmatic, too. So in addition to being bisexual, Vulcans are probably good with polyamory as well.

    Wow, this is a discussion I never thought I'd be having.

    Vulcans like Sarek and (Vulcan-Romulan hybrids like) T'Pol have chosen to form life bonds with humans. If they're willing to go outside their species, I'm sure they're willing to be interested in Vulcans of the same sex. Now having said that, we've seen so many humans and aliens going outside their races for flirtations or relations, but that doesn't mean they're all bisexual... just more open to different things.

    Not as good as Denobulans.

    Having not seen Enterprise (I've only watched a few episodes of the first season), I had to Google that lol but yes, you'd be correct!

    ENT gets a bad wrap. S1 and 2 had some stinkers but it also had some great episodes, and s3 and 4 were a vast improvement. I genuinely recommend ENT.

    I'd actually like to see a species not care about sex at all aside from reproductive purposes

    Wasn't there a TNG episode with an androgynous race? A Riker dives right in?

    Probably won't happen, but with the series probably ending with Pike passing the torch to Kirk, it would be kind of cool if they had Chris Hemsworth as "Prime" George Kirk watch his son become Captain.
