Storyline

Spock's court-martial board views the video stream from Talos IV of Captain Pike's imprisonment 13 years earlier and of the Enterprise's attempts to rescue him. The Talosians, using their powers of mind-reading and illusion, place Pike in worlds from both his memory and his imagination. The one constant is Vina, the beautiful blonde survivor of a crashed Earth ship (the other half of a Talosian plan for a captive Adam and Eve). Number One's attempts to liberate Pike result in her and Yeoman Colt's capture (additional breeding stock for the Talosian plan), but when the humans and Talosians learn more of each other, the situation takes a turn neither side expects. As the Enterprise approaches Talos IV once again, Kirk and the court watch the past unfold and learn the real reason for Spock's mutiny. Written by Tom D.

Goofs

At the end Pike and Vina are shown entering the narrow opening of the elevator shaft. Pike, who is shown in his normal form before his accident, was in fact still confined to his medical chair. The chair was earlier shown to be overly big and bulky, and would not have fit through the narrow opening of the elevator. See more »

A Worthy Conclusion
26 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the first half ended, Spock asked to have the second tape played. He doesn't care if he is vindicated, only that his former Captain be given piece. We now focus on Jeffrey Hunter who was Kirk's counterpart in "The Cage." We are let in on the secret of his adventures on Talos IV. It is about an effort of a dying race of superbrains who need to repopulate the planet. They are able to create incredible illusions, offering Pike anything to mate and be the new Adam. Unfortunately, Starship Captains don't always go along with someone else's agenda. Beautiful women (illusions) are offered up but Pike wants to understand what is going on. The joy of this is that he thoughtfully unravels things. Not to spoil this, it really works. The conclusion is quite satisfying. This also is Leonard Nimoy's opportunity to get beyond the "weird looking guy with the pointy ears." I recommend this.
