Re: Mind Meld Motive (SPOILER)
Why did Spock mind meld with Pike?
1. Curiosity about what it was like to die.
2. To try to bring some comfort to Pike.
3. To gather eyewitness information about the attack that was about to become unavailable otherwise.
Likely, all three reasons and more. Spock is a complex thinker.
As the brilliant philosopher once said... Everybody, have fun tonight. Everybody, Wang Chung tonight.
