The Vulcans, sometimes called "Vulcanians,"[1] were members of the United Federation of Planets[2] and were dedicated to a philosophy of total logic.[3] Though humanoid, Vulcans could be distinguished by their pointed ears and upswept eyebrows.[2] Vulcans' blood was green, and their blood pressure was "practically nonexistent" with a typical pulse of 242 beats per minute.[4] A Vulcan's heart was located in the lower left of their chest, near the bottom of the rib cage.[1]

Vulcans possessed limited telepathic abilities, and were able to perform a mind meld, which would link their mind with that of another person.[5]

Vulcans made first contact with Humans on 5 April 2063.[6]
