Vulcan is an ancient culture, its people widely regarded as among the leading artists and diplomats in the universe. Unlike its cousins on Romulus and Remus, Vulcan has only a small military force. She produces very few scientics or military personnel; most of those on the planet are graduates of the Klingon Empire's Academy.
There is political unrest within the Vulcan provinces; some are opposed to the Alliance and seek to break free from it, while others are content with the status quo of protection that the Empire allows. Because of this division, the separating provinces seek help from Remus, in the form of added military strength. While the uprisings never last for very long, they are important to the Maquis, who count several Vulcans among their ranks, as they engage the Imperial Fleet and provide a distraction so that the Maquis can do their work.
Vulcans are very disciplined people, and also very sensuous, using meditation and their natural telepathy among their gifts as diplomats, and creating artwork that is recognized throughout both the Alpha and Beta Quadrants as outstanding.
