True, it isn't mentioned in the encyclopedia (nor the CD-ROM version of
it). But there is the quote from Star Trek II mentioned before:

This at least ensures that Scouting will survive well into the 23th
And, if there is Scouting, wouldn't it be the logical thing to do for
any youth to join ? So, Spock must have been a Scout.
Oh, and there are the camping scenes from Star Trek V; but Kirk only
makes reference to camping as a boy, not as a boy scout. And to Spock,
the whole camping experience seems new, but that might of course just
indicate that Vulcan troops work differently.
(quite a silly posting, isn't it ?)
