I have found on 9-gag this still:

enter image description here

with Mr. Spock holding an "exotic animal" which is actually an annoyed dog in a unicorn-suit (sorta...).

From which episode is it? Unless it is a photoshopped image (can't really trust 9-gag...)

    Did you try a reverse image search? – Catija Jul 7 '15 at 19:44

    Indeed, a reverse search will get you there (The Enemy Within, season 1, episode 5). Cute pooch. :) – Walt Jul 7 '15 at 19:55
  • @Catija it sends me to reddit, imgur and such. I read some of the comments, but I couldn't find the source of the image. – mattiav27 Jul 7 '15 at 19:56

If you Google "Spock Unicorn Dog", it seems that this image is from episode called "The Enemy Within" (Season 1 Episode 5).

Scott assists in beaming a dog-like animal specimen from the planet, but he and the others are surprised when two identical creatures materialize - one completely docile and the other vicious.

From IMDb's synopsis page:

First, after repairs are made, they try the experiment with a unicorn-dog, which was split into two when it was beamed up. One half of the unicorn-dog was peaceful, the other was snarling and biting.

Also, this image appears on a site called thegeektwins.com in a caption contest where it specifically notes the source of the image:

While the original Star Trek: The Original Series series had a lot of things going for it (a great cast, engaging characters, thought-provoking science-fiction, resonant themes), I don't think anyone would list "big budget" among them. Nowhere was it more evident than in "The Enemy Within," when an alien creature was depicted by a little dog in a fur coat and a horn.

  • No need to qualify your answer with "it seems". The image is a screen cap from that episode some 17 minutes in (just checked it on Netflix). Kirk (holding the animal) converses with Spock in the transporter room regarding his hold on leadership; Kirk hands the animal to Spock and exits. – Anthony X Dec 10 '17 at 15:41
  • @AnthonyX that's... just how I write. – Catija Dec 10 '17 at 15:55
