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.

Pike's incredible odyssey
6 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A bit more of the Jeffrey Hunter pilot is used in this second part of Menagerie. With William Shatner, Malachi Throne, and Sean Kenney as the crippled and broken Captain Pike sit in judgment of Leonard Nimoy the viewing screen on the Enterprise is telling more of Jeffrey Hunter's incredible odyssey.

It turns out that Susan Oliver is the only survivor of that spaceship wreck that was not an illusion. In fact illusion is the Talosian stock in trade. They can make you see and feel just about any experience they care to give you. It's how they can hold prisoners.

What they want is for Hunter to find Oliver really attractive and get down to the business of mating. Even with creating things out of pure thought there is certainly physical work to do that the Talosians have just forgotten how.

How Hunter overcomes this is for you to watch the episode for. But it's quite the story and we certainly know why Captain Pike wants to get back to Talos IV and why the ever loyal Leonard Nimoy risks his career in Starfleet to help him.

It certainly is one incredible odyssey for Jeffrey Hunter.
