Quotes

Spock: What are the three most salient facts about Captain Pike?
Number One: One, his capacity for hearing out another point of view is exceeded only by his willingness to change his own once he's heard you out. Two, even though he is the most heavily decorated fighting captain in Starfleet, he views resorting to force as an admission of failure. And three... he is utterly unsentimental except when it comes to horses.

Please don't be foreshadowing. Please!

This episode is a testament that Number One is the most under-utilized bridge crew in the show. Pretty much the least screen time, yet the most intriguing character.

Even though the episode started out fun, it speaks of the weight of command, something that the Captain from the next episode should definitely take note of. Although personally, whether you mix with the crew or put a distance between them, I believe both ways of leadership have their merits. If the crew is self-disciplined, especially as in control as a Vulcan, there should be no harm reducing the distance.
