  • The second pilot of the cult show is great.

    The first scene... Captain James T. Kirk and his right hand man Spock are playing a game of three dimensional chess. Even in the first few minutes it shows you how these characters are. Kirk is defensive and loyal of his ship and of the Federation (like any Captain should be) and Spock the intellectual even remarking, "Oh yes, frustrating one of your human emotions." This right away tells you that he is surely not from Earth. The Enterprise is on high alert and this close in your already in on the action. This is the reason why Star Trek got picked up because the networks thought that it moved quicker than The Cage. After finding out that Kirk's best friend, Gary Mitchell, is then afflicted with telekinetic powers, Kirk is faced with the impossible. Kill his best friend, leave him on an abandoned planet or just let him live and kill everyone on the ship, definitely not the last one. As Kirk and the rest of the landing party are on the planet get ready for one thrill ride because there are shockers until you can't see straight!
