To be serious though, some folks might actually look at Spock's forced mind-meld on Valeris in The Undiscovered Country as a form of brutality. Some actually viewed it as "mind-rape".

I've heard it described that way too. It certainly put the mindmeld in a different light to anything before or since.

The VGR ep with the Rock could certainly count as brutaility, although it wasn't shown especially brutal lol

It could definitely be viewed that way.
