Vulcan Language Institute Reclamation Project
Shi'Oren t'Gen-Lis Vuhlkansu, or The Vulcan language Institute as it is said in Federation Standard English, existed on at least two different URL's (or URI's as they're known now) until August 2008, when it dissappeared from it's last known home on an Earthlink user's webspace. We're assuming the user was Mark Gardner, the head of the project and indeed it's primary driving force, but that is just an assumption.
Why it dissappeared, we can only guess. The most obvious possible reason is the lack of funding for the webspace, but another, equally possible reason could simply be a lack of interest or ambition to maintain it, let alone continue it's development. Either way, with the pending release of Star Trek Online we decided that this significant project, a truly scholarly work comprising many years of research and study of canonical resources, would be lost to Role-players specifically and the world in general if we did not step up and do something about it.
Luckily, we were able to access a saved version of the site, and it's from here that we take the Vulcan Language Institute, update it's formatting and mark-up to suit this new Wiki environment, and present it here. Attempts were made to contact Mr. Gardner or any member of the project, but were unsuccessful, so we do this without explicit permission. We do, however, firmly believe that they would not want this to fade silently into the blackness of space so we assume implied permission until we can get that other, better kind.
Text is taken verbatim from the archives and only edited to suit formatting and to avoid ambiguation. Occasionaly we have split some pages into more meaningful sections, or retitled them for the same reason. It is my hope that one day the project may be advanced here, but for now we will present the information we have in the best possible way that we can.
Dif-tor heh smusma.
Supplemental: Star Trek Online has been released and is a going concern. We re doing our best to update and continue with this project as best we can.
