With all the laudatory stuff about Leonard Nimoy lately, I think it's only right to remember that Spock was a rapist.

Consider the creepiest Star Trek moment ever, played as if it were morally right: In Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country, Spock forced Valeris into a mind-meld. He essentially rapes her on the bridge, with everyone watching. No one says anything, not even when she cries out. Spock's actions are in direct contravention of the right against self-incrimination, but the movie (and the characters in the film) seem to have no problem with it.
Spock: A lie?
Valeris: A choice.
