We kick off our TOS watch with the very first episode of Star Trek ever made, The Cage. This episode, which did not air in its full form until the 1980s, includes a different Captain, a different First Officer, a different doctor, and a fairly different tone when compared to the test of The Original Series. We are introduced to Captain Pike, played by the late Jeffrey Hunter, who leads this crew of the USS Enterprise. The Cage stands as a monument to what Gene Roddenberry initially wanted Star Trek to become and this week, we talk about it in all of its glory and failings.
If The Cage and Captain Pike are not your thing, join us next week for the second pilot, Where No Man Has Gone Before!
