Some Enterprise ep had an alien I remember was forced (and kidnapped?) to command a system with their mental abilities, strapped and trapped in a chair looking dead in control.
If it helps, if i remember, it was maybe Romulans(?) kidnapping an Andorian(?). I keep trying to search.
I can't remember what point and what character to research. What reminds me to find it is how forced it was, whole theme was detailed and well-enacted.
Any detail, vid, links you can share I appreciate.
