Default Did young Kirk see anything else during Prime Spock's Mind Meld?

I wondered if young Kirk saw his future with Spock during the mind meld and not just experienced an emotional reaction.

He clearly felt there was this long history between himself and Spock but did he see some of it?

What does everyone think.

i don't think so, because spock did say that he was emotionally compermised. so that mind meld was breif.

Lets say some things that happen between two men really just stay between the two of them. Wink, wink...

I think Kirk got the general idea that there was a long-term relationship between them from the background chatter in Spock's mind (all those echoes). Spock was probably trying to filter out most of that so he didn't hit an unprepared Kirk with the totality of a long lifetime, plus they needed to focus on the information he was trying to convey right then, but all the rest of it was ambient, and Kirk is sharp and attuned enough to pick it up.
The mind meld was probably the most important event to convince Kirk that Spock didn't hate him. And later, Spock tells young Spock to stick it out in Starfleet. So he was really a prime mover in getting their relationship to develop in this universe.

LOLZ I ttly just read a fan fic last night that mentioned that (it was a very good one, if I recall). The Pit of Voles...I mean fanfiction.net has already added a Star Trek: 2009 category. There are some surprisingly good fics! Just a matter of time though before the really putrid ones start showing up.

I love the scene after the mind meld when the young Kirk said where you came from, did I know my father just very good.

That was a touching moment, starwarsrcks.

I did get the impression that Kirk got an impression of their friendship from the meld. Maybe not specific info, but a sense of it.
