Vulcan is a rocky planet with little or no vegetation and is the home to Spock. Vulcan is also home to the humanoid race the Vulcans, best described as people humans with pointy ears or space elfs. In the rebooted star Trek universe, the planet is destroyed by Nero, a Romulan who is out for revenge. The planet is said to be orbiting a star in the belt of Orion. With the destruction of Vulcan, an estimated six billion Vulcans die. Those that survive make a new world and call that new world New Vulcan.
