Star Trek Strange New Worlds, what did you think?

So is T'Pring an augment super woman too? She is a tiny little woman, and she knocks out the criminal guy with one lazy half punch.
Vulcans are on average 3 times stronger than a human, so yes compared to a human she is an augment super woman.

That's why the vulcan neck pinch actually works. Technically a human can do it too, but it requires a lot of pressure right in that specific area. Vulcans with their much greater strength can do it easily.

Yup. Any bitching about it for other reasons people might have, in the nuTrek movie having Khan fighting with Spock made a lot more sense than having him fight with Kirk.

I think he is complaining about Spock-in-T'Pring one-punching another Vulcan, so her Vulcan advantage does not really count here.

In my head, it was Spock's Starfleet hand-to-hand combat training that allowed him to use that one punch most effectively.

Yea....but is not the Vulcan Guy she punches three times stronger too? So..it equals out.

Vulcans are not strong because of magic, it's gravity. Everything about their bodies physically is "tough" and made for high gravity.

Three times stronger or not, a sucker punch will likely take you down. I once saw a fight, in a shopping mall, that lasted about three seconds. Three scummy looking guys were walking towards the escalators and saw a Rocker guy, in a jean jacket, coming down them. Lead scum starts crap talking the other guy at the top of his lungs. The other guy grabs the crap talker by the front of his shirt and slugs him once in the face. Crap talker is instantly out, but the other guy hits him twice more before letting the unconscious scummy guy hit the floor. The other two just stood there, shocked.
 


In the old series we learn that the Old Ones or whatever they are called seeded life on many planets, as well as move various human cultures to other planets. It makes sense that there would genetic compatibility in many species if they were seeded by that race.
Worf (and not any of the Vulcans aboard the Enterprise) was supposed to be the one with compatible blood for a Romulan. Star Trek biology is certainly strange. But it probably also helps that Una was genetically engineered (possibly even to be extra-close to regular humans? Don't quite remember if she's officially a human or just some humanoid alien that totally isn't genetically augmented)

I don't now what it is about her, but the first time I saw a clip of Chapel, I liked her. And I still do. Too bad she and Spock will probably never make it.

And the episode also felt a bit like a redemption of T'Pring. In TOS, she seemed quite a cold-blooded woman that would be willing to sacrifice Spock's best friend - or Spock - so she can marry someone else. But maybe it's really stupid Vulcan marriage/divorce rules that drive her to such cold-blooded logic?

Una is a humanoid alien, from a race that makes extensive use of genetic augmentation.
