Mr. Spock Attempts First Mind Meld

In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Kirk, Spock, and the crew of the Enterprise travel back in time to 1986, and visit San Francisco in search of a humpback whale.

And, now, in Star Trek XI: The Search for Intelligent Life, Spock travels back in time and returns to Earth again in 2006, this time posing as a 7-foot-9-inch Mongolian herdsman
Bao Xishun. Spock attempts a mind-meld with a dolphin, but it skin is so slippery that he can't touch it long enough to make the mind meld work. In the picture below, you can see Spock's solution - he sticks his arm down the dolphin's throat.

The mind meld wasn't successful, but Spock did succeed in pulling out some undigestible chunks of plastic from the dolphin's stomach.
