Focus on the Destruction of Vulcan
The destruction of Vulcan is a huge event in the Kelvin timeline.
A focus (unlike a spotlight) is an in-depth look at a Star Trek fanfiction canon item and my twist(s) on it.
Of course, all of fan fiction is like that, but the idea here is to provide a window into how a single canon concept can be used in fan fiction.
This canon concept is one of the cornerstones of the JJ Abrams universe and timeline. To change a founding species into an endangered one is a hell of an idea.
When I responded to a prompt about writing in the nuTrek universe and timeline, I had not yet seen the 2009 film and clutched the idea like a life preserver. It created an irresistible idea for me, that Vulcans would be kept in sanctuaries for their own protection, much like we put pandas into zoos today.
A dream that night is recounted in Beats. Eriecho and Saddik are allowed to go to a Suliban helix where they meet H’Shema’s mother, L’Cultura, in Double Helix.
In The Mundane World, Eriecho meets Sollastek while gardening, and in A Gathering, they and others meet Sarek.
In Recessive, Eriecho tries to change herself to please Sollastek. Then, in Across the Universe, she meets Sybok.
At some point, I will probably write the Eriecho-Sollastek wedding.
The story of the destruction of Vulcan ended up being the story of this character. But readers love Eriecho, so I feel it was a good way to focus this canon condition.
