That would be incorrect, in my opinion because: Because even when the planet was previously known as Vulcania, the inhabitants were called Vulcanians, not Vulcans. However, this could be correct because: Some planets are given names before humans/explorers even check to see if the planet has inhabitants that have already given it a name. Therefore Spock could be from a planet with various names that are not pronounced Vulcan and yet his species could still be Vulcan.


In the fictional Star Trek, it is Spock's homeworld and the homeworld of all Vulcans. In the alternate reality (the new Star Trek movie) Vulcan is destroyed. In reality, there was once believed to be a planet very close to the Sun, with an orbit smaller even than Mercury's. It's was named Vulcan but never observed. Einstein's theories showed that there was no need to assume a planet there.


William Shatner was in two episodes of the Twilight Zone "Nick of Time" and "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and in neither episode was a reference made to the planet Vulcan .


Vulcanwas a small planet proposed to exist in an orbit between Mercury and the Sun. In an attempt to explain peculiarities of Mercury's orbit, in the 19th-century French mathematician Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier hypothesized that they were the result of another planet, which he named Vulcan. No such planet was ever found, and Mercury's orbit has now been explained by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity


Mr. Spock comes from Vulcan (as a vulcan this is obvious.) However, Vulcan used to be known as Vulcania in the extremely old episodes of ST-TOS, and therefore that would make Spock a Vulcanian, too.


Ambassador Sarek of the planet Vulcan and his human wife, Amanda Grayson.
