* Trip Tucker and T'Pol on ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'' had a psychic bond and were in love (largely due to T'Pol's damaged emotional control from drug abuse). Their first hint is when they find themselves sharing the same daydream, despite being on different starships.
* Troi and Riker from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' were like this early on, talking to each other telepathically a lot. This was dropped, or forgotten later, though it was picked up again in the novels, especially Creator/PeterDavid's ''Imzadi''.
** Much later, in the seventh season episode "Attached", Captain Picard and Doctor Crusher are mind-linked for an episode due to neural implants. During this time, they come to terms with their feelings for each other and decide to keep things professional (because of personal history and because StatusQuoIsGod).[[note]]("Decide to keep things professional" is a euphemistic way of putting it. Picard seems all set to [[UnresolvedSexualTension resolve some things]], but his hopes get [[{{Pun}} Doctor Crushed.]] They get over themselves in the novels.)[[/note]] The SeriesFinale does show that they did [[HookedUpAfterwards get together in the future]], but later divorced.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' "Amok Time". Spock had a mindlink placed in him as part of an ArrangedMarriage when he was a child. This mindlink was suspiciously easily overcome.
** The Vulcan Pon farr is expanded quite a bit in the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse, including one book wherein one of the mates ''[[OutWithABang dies of a heart attack]]'' during its consummation.
* In ''Series/{{Beauty and the Beast|1987}}'', Vincent and Catherine could usually tell when the other was in trouble. When the mind-link broke, it almost drove Vincent crazy.
* On ''{{Series/Fringe}}'', Oliva and John Scott have this [[spoiler:even after he's dead]] via the sensory deprivation tank.
** Later in the series, Peter and [[spoiler: Olivia]] develop an odd (and especially impressive) variation of this which, par for course with the series, defies the very laws of time and space with unclear moral consequences: [[spoiler: After he writes himself out of the time-line and then reappears in the present, his presence and her unique abilities and brain chemistry bring forth her memories from the original time-line (including them falling in love). Unfortunately, this eventually completely replaces her memories of the new time-line, effectively killing that version of Olivia in favor of the OneTruePairing favored/required by TheMultiverse]].



* Played with on ''Series/TheXFiles'' between Mulder and Scully, though oddly (given the paranormal premise of the show) never truly explored. The most overt of this implied "link" is the fact that they dream of each other while the other is abducted; Mulder dreams of Scully being tortured in season two, while Scully does the same in season 8. In fact, this becomes so regular that Scully panics when she stops having the dreams, for fear that Mulder's death might be the reason.

* ''FanFic/{{Amelia}}'' features this between a lesbian and a straight girl. It doesn't influence her sexuality, just romance, which causes issues. Largely PlayedForDrama, with several characters questioning how much the link is influencing their personalities [[spoiler: and catastrophic changes when it's removed.]] In the finale, [[spoiler: the world is restructured to feature hundreds of MindlinkMates.]]

* Downplayed in Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn''. There was not telepathy involved per se, exactly, but Supergirl and [[TemporaryLoveInterest Geoff]]'s minds were bonded somehow, and that bond gave strength to Supergirl to break free when a villain was taking over her body.
