Vulcan is a prairie town in Alberta, Canada. It was named after the Roman god of fire, but the small town of less than 2,000 people has since decided to capitalize on the fact that it shares a name with Spock's fictional home planet Vulcan in Star Trek.

For over twenty years they have hosted the Spock Days Star Trek convention. They built a replica of the Starship Enterprise, and at the Tourism and Trek Station you can see some Star Trek memorabilia and presumably also find out about the history of the town's grain-based economy.
