The Planet Vulcan
The Planet Vulcan where Mr Spock came from in Star Trek is a very different place from a hypothetical Planet Vulcan which was supposed to be a planet in orbit around Sol (the Sun) as mentioned in some old books.
Thinking about it logically, the Planet Vulcan would have to be similar in various ways to The Earth, as it is known to be the homeworld of Vulcans, those highly intelligent humanoids, whose differences to humans are so small as to be barely noticeable at a Star Trek convention.
