Message 894009 - Posted: 12 May 2009, 22:46:58 UTC

Spock's mother's name is Amanda Grayson. She is a direct descendant of Richard Grayson, noted acrobat and crime fighter, ward of Bruce Wayne. Richard Grayson was a descendant of the famed John Clayton, Viscount Greystoke, via a grandson named William Grayson (nee Clayton) who dropped the Clayton name to avoid the notoriety that would come from being a descendant of Tarzan. William's brother Henry did the same, but chose the name Gray. Henry is the great grandfather of Gabriel Gray aka Sylar.

What is not commonly known is that the "John Clayton" found living the jungle among the apes was not, in fact, the child of the prior Viscount Greystoke, but in fact a marooned Vulcan named Stoek. The people who found Stoek mistakenly assumed that by pointing at himself and identifying himself (in Vulcan) as "Stoek, son of T'zan" he was identifying himself as Tarzan of the house of Greystoke. Stoek found this a convenient fiction to allow him the resources to attempt to contact Vulcan. By the time he did so, he was quite involved in a personal relationship and the politics of Earth, and was requested by the Vulcan science academy to remain on earth as an observer prior to eventual first contact.

And people say I'm losing touch with reality...

+5 points for mentioning Spock in a blog.
+50 points for mentioning Bruce Wayne and Richard (Dick) Grayson.
-25 points for mentioning Tarzan.
-5 points for mentioning apes/monkeys.
+100 for not mentioning robots, ninjas, pirates or pirated robotic ninjas.

Yeah, I'm not your typical nerd. I gave you points for stuff that most others would take away points for not mentioning. The jury is still out on your lack of mentioning Chuck Norris and Mr. T.

So far, you're ahead in my book.

No points for Vulcan spies inhabiting the Earth before "First Contact?"

Obviously the actress is related to Spock and Tarzan. Do we know Amanda's original family name? Is it possible she is playing herself, and that she ended up in the past due to a time travel accident?

I googled her name up but as you know the 21st centurty so called internet leaves a lot to be desired. But it seems she never had a last name in the historical record. Plausible deniabillty , she was a smart woman after all.

I think that's clear evidence that Amanda and Elizabeth Graycen are the same person, and that a 22nd century warp field experiment was responsible for sending her back to about 840AD where she took the place of a non-immortal named Amanda, whom she closely resembled. That doesn't explain how she came to be immortal or how she managed to live to the 22nd century with her head still attached while all the other immortals were killed. Maybe she hadn't died the first time before the warp field experiment sent her back in time to become Amanda.

Doesn't seem to be much of a genetic explanation for the immortality seen in the Highlander series, so the immortality is probably unrelated to her Vulcan heritage.

Could it be that all the immortals are nothing more than warp field throwbacks ( so to speak )? and the quickening is just the warp field bubble collapsing? Sort of like the movie Matrix that if you think you are dead you are dead?

But the Matrix was just a holosuite simulation run at Quark's bar.

A virtual paradox? !!!!

Quarks bar only exists in a fictional tale created to amuse the residents of the matrix.

This is going to be lame but here goes.
Mr.T born Laurence Tureaud. May 21 1952 is really a Vulcan.
his vulcan name is Tu-Reaud.
He was sent to Earth 6 months after Arecibo pinged a few NEO's Yes those radar pulses got some attention.
