Something just occured to me: During the mindmeld something iconic was missing...Spock didnīt say the "My mind to your mind...etc." Was this ever adressed in an interview? Or is there any precedence during TOS for Spock NOT saying it?
And btw. I remember faintly that there was an alternate version to the "mind meld monologe" used at least once that had "...and now we are one" attached to the end. Can anybody confirm this?
