So the question is, did Spock torture lieutenant Valeris in star trek 6? In the scene on the bridge just after Valeris is exposed in sick bay, we all know that Spock mind melds with Valeris to gain the names of the conspirators and the location of the peace accords. And as we all know the names come quickly but the location doesn't, and Spock then uses two hands, seemingly increasing his mind power over her, causing what appears to be severe mental pain, she also screams. Did Spock telepathically torture her with his obviously more powerful mind to gain the location he thought was hidden deep inside? And if the answer is yes, was it because he believed the ends justified the means, was it a human part of him that was also incredibly angry with Valeris, or was it a combination of the two?
