Skon was a Vulcan who served on the USS Yorktown (NCC-208) during the Earth-Romulan War. He was also father to Sarek of Vulcan and grandfather to Spock.

Skon was the only known survivor of the attack on Station Salem-One. He didn't perceive Humans in the same as most Vulcans and believed that Vulcans should embrace humans more than they have.

Skon practiced the tradition that a select few Vulcans do –- that of tracing lineage (and history) back to the time when Vulcans and Romulans were one race. This history was not written, but a memory exercise passed on through generations of (very dangerous) mind melds. To speak of this history to anyone but the chosen ones (high priests / priestesses) was forbidden. Sharing with outsiders was considered sacrilegious, and sometimes death was the penalty.
