Razib Khan wrote an interesting post on the Gene Expression blog: Vulcans through the eye of the bottleneck.  The question he addresses is a simple one: on Star Trek, when the Vulcan population was reduced from billions to only about ten thousand survivors, would this constitute a dangerous population bottleneck for them? Would they be able to repopulate if given a new world to do it on?

Think about it a bit, then go look up Razib’s analysis.
