STAR TREK: THE PILOT FILMS!



STAR TREK: THE CAGE (EXTENDED VERSION)

(USA, 1965) 63 minutes
The USS Enterprise receives what appears to be a distress message, but when they arrive at the planet where the message was sent from, they discover that the supposed survivors were nothing more than illusions created by the inhabitants of the planet for the purpose of capturing a mate for the one genuine surviving human. While Captain Pike tries to cope with the experiments and tests that the aliens are conducting on him, his crew tries to find a way to rescue him, but the aliens' illusions are too powerful and deceptive.

STAR TREK: WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE

(USA, 1966) 50 minutes
When the Enterprise attempts to penetrate a space barrier, it is damaged and creates a potentially worse problem. Two crew members, including Kirk's best friend, gain psionic powers that are growing exponentially. This leaves Captain Kirk with the difficult choice; either marooning them or killing before they get so powerful they lose their humanity and become truly dangerous.

STAR TREK: THE MENAGERIE (PARTS 1 & 2)

(USA, 1966) 100 minutes
While visiting Starbase 11, the Enterprise is hijacked by Mr. Spock, leaving Captain Kirk behind while abducting the recently crippled Captain Christopher Pike, former commander of the Enterprise. The destination: Talos IV, off limits by Federation order since the Enterprise first visited the planet thirteen years earlier while then under the command of Captain Pike. After Kirk and Commodore Mendez, the Starbase commander, intercept the Enterprise, a court martial against Spock's apparent treachery is convened. Spock's only defense is a video feed showing Pike's capture and imprisonment by the inhabitants of Talos IV.
