    You have a point, but throughout ST, Spock never mentioned about any siblings. 4 films... not a thing. Then boom! here's a half brother, in Sybok. What?! How did nobody know that Sarek, a prominent ambassador and one of the leading men in the Federation didn't have a son from a previous marriage?! To a Vulcan princess no less! Additionally, how would everybody be clueless as to Michael Burnham?

Ok no excuse for Burnham I grant you. But I don't think it's that odd people didn't know about Sybok. Vulcans aren't like human Millennials who post all their private info on the facebook...they're a private people \:\)

IMO Sarek's marriages to Amanda and Perrin were for love. That marriage to Sybok's princess mom was probably arranged and he was just a bad father figure to Sybok and a bad husband to whatsherface before she died.

I kind of wonder if Sarek had handlers on Vulcan who were protecting his reputation by scrubbing info about Sybok and his mom and keeping that part of Sarek's past concealed from the rest of the Federation.

(of course an obvious question comes up...did Burnham and Sybok ever live under the same roof? I think Sybok did live under Sarek's roof after his mother died)
