  • Spock, facing a court martial, invents the television show Lost by incorporating flashbacks into the narrative.

    The Menagerie is one of the greatest achievements in the history of Star Trek, and the second half doesn't disappoint. As you might know, this two parter incorporated footage from Star Trek's first pilot, starring different actors, which failed to sell the show. The great thing about spreading the footage over two episodes is that very little editing had to be done for time, as opposed to the episode "The Cage" which covers much of the same material but in about half the time. This, plus the Kirk, Spock, and McCoy additions, is why the Menagerie is far superior, and why every fan should see it at least once.
