STAR TREK - THE PILOTS



THE CAGE (First Pilot) ................... writer: Gene Roddenberry
producer: Gene Roddenberry
director: Robert Butler
filmed: 11-12/64

The USS Enterprise, under the command of Capt. Christopher Pike,
is en route to a Federation starbase for shore leave and repairs
when it receives a distress message from a vessel which has been
missing for over 10 years, the S.S. Columbia. The message states
that the ship has crashed on the planet Talos IV. Upon arriving
to investigate, the Enterprise landing party discovers a ragged
group of survivors of the crash. One of the survivors, a young
woman named Vina, leads Pike away from the rest of the landing
party. Pike is then captured by a group of large headed aliens (led
by "The Keeper") and is taken underground, along with Vina. The
crash survivors as well as the encampment, apparently illusions,
then disappear. The aliens then subject Pike to telepathically
projected experiences in an attempt to measure his reactions
and feelings while, on the surface, the Enterprise crew attempts
his rescue.

WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE (2nd Pilot) ... writer: Samuel A. Peeples
producer: Gene Roddenberry
director: James Goldstone
filmed: July 1965
airdate: 9/22/66

While patroling the outer boundary of our galaxy the USS Enterprise,
under the command of Capt. James T. Kirk, beams aboard a flight
recorder from the "Valiant", a galactic survey vessel which had
visited the region almost two centuries ago. The survey vessel, upon
attempting to leave the galaxy, had come in contact with an energy
barrier that disabled the ship and killed some of the crew. One of the
crew, however, survived serious injury from the barrier. The recorder
tapes information becomes garbled from this point on with vague details
of the Valiant's captain requesting data on extrasensory perception
(ESP), and eventually self-destructing his ship. Kirk decides to proceed
and the Enterprise contacts the same barrier that damaged the Valiant.
The Enterprise sustains damage and casualties as a result and Kirk
orders the ship to back out of the barrier. Lt. Commander Gary Mitchell,
a friend of Kirk's from his Academy days, appears uninjured although
his eyes now glow a bright silver. Dr. Elizabeth Dehner, a psychiatrist,
is also knocked out but seems completely normal afterward. Kirk
orders the Enterprise to proceed to Delta Vega, an uninhabited planet
with a lithium cracking station that can aid in the repairing of the
the ships warp drive engines. Mitchell begins showing signs of
increasing mental "powers" and in Sickbay,at one point, "plays
dead" by stopping all his bodily functions for nearly a full minute.
Mitchell also becomes gradually more unstable as his powers grow and
rapidly poses a serious threat to, not only the Enterprise and Kirk,
but to the rest of the galaxy as well.

The USS Enterprise is confronted by a "warning buoy" while

spherical spaceship traps the Enterprise and an alien voice promises
destruction in ten minutes. A bluff conceived by Captain Kirk
postpones the death threat of Balok, the formidable looking alien
commander. When the alien separates from his ship and appears to be
in distress, Kirk goes to his rescue. Finally, the frightening alien
is revealed as a puppet operated by the real Balok, a childlike
alien who has been testing them to determine whether Kirk and company
are truly peaceful. Diplomatic relations are established and Mr.
Bailey, who had lost his nerve awaiting Balok's "death threat",
volunteers to remain on board the alien's ship as an "exchange
student".

A transporter malfunction divides Captain Kirk into two people. Each

his rational and sensitive mind. The other has the "bad" points;
irrational, bestial attributes. Both halves must be reunited in time

Nancy differently because the real Nancy is dead, killed by a shape-
changing humanoid. The creature, the last surviving native of this
planet, has been enjoying a symbiotic relationship with Professor
Crater. Crater supplies the bodily salts to sustain the entity, and
the creature provides Crater with companionship. The arrival of the
Enterprise party ruins the delicate balance of this strange alliance.
Craving additional salt, the creature kills two crewman and,
disguising itself as one of them, boards the Enterprise. The creature
assumes Dr. McCoy's identity before Kirk eventually tracks it down
and destroys it with the aid of Spock and McCoy. (This was the first

To add to the mystery, the positions of the bodies indicate that
the researchers went berserk before they died. The riddle is solved
when Lt. Tormolen, who lands to investigate with Spock, spreads a
strange germ he has contracted on the planet. As the Enterprise
crew begins to become infected, strange things happen. Mr. Sulu
threatens the bridge crew with a sword while Lt. Riley locks himself
in the engineering control room. The disease must be conquered and

director: Vincent McEveety
filmed: August 1966
airdate: 12/15/66


The Enterprise is patrolling the Earth Outposts along the Romulan
Neutral Zone, which cuts off planets Romulus and Remus from
Federation space. The Romulans, a warlike race, had fought a war
with the Federation a century before. As Captain Kirk is about to
perform the wedding ceremony of crewmembers Angela Martine and
Robert Tomlinson, an Earth Outpost announces that it is under attack.
The starship witnesses the destruction of the outpost, but is
helpless to assist. Kirk learns that the Romulans have perfected an
invention that renders their spaceships invisible; they are testing
out their new device. Kirk reasons that he must overtake and destroy
the enemy vessel before it can return home. The Romulans are found
to appear almost exactly like the Vulcans, which causes crewman
Stiles to express overt prejudicial distrust of Mr. Spock. When the
Romulan commander is finally cornered, he self-destructs his ship
rather than surrender. Stiles, whose life has been saved by Spock,
realizes that his prejudicial attitude is wrong. Tomlinson is killed.

The Enterprise arrives at planet Exo III to learn the fate of
Dr. Roger Korby, the "Pasteur of archeological medicine". On
board is Nurse Christine Chapel, Korby's fiancee, who has given
up a bio-research career on Earth to find him. Korby contacts the
Enterprise, and confirms that he is living in underground caverns
he discovered while he was suffering from extreme frostbite five
years before. At Korby's request, only Kirk and Christine beam
down. The doctor shows them ancient machines that were left behind
by the long-dead Exoites and tended by Ruk, a giant android. Korby's
aides, Dr. Brown and young Andrea, are revealed as androids and
Korby fashions an android duplicate of Kirk. His intention is to take
the Enterprise and "seed" the universe with androids. When Korby
vaporizes Ruk, Kirk argues that the androids are neither peaceful
nor human. Korby himself, transformed into an android, disputes this
at first. When Korby realizes that he is more machine than man, he
turns a phaser on himself and Andrea. Spock arrives with a landing
party moments later; Nurse Chapel announces that she is staying with
the Enterprise crew.

to the starship and demands asylum. The apparent raving madman,
subdued by Spock, is taken to Sickbay and identified as Dr. Simon van
Gelder, Adam's assistant. Using a Vulcan mind meld, Spock determines
that Adams has turned Tantalus into a chamber of horrors with a
"neural neutralizer" device that is responsible for van Gelder's
incoherent state. Captain Kirk and psychiatrist Dr. Helen Noel

the insane director and Adams perishes in his own machine. Dr. van

filmed: August 1966
airdate: 10/27/66

The Enterprise encounters a planet that looks amazingly like Earth.
Kirk and company discover a city resembling a ruined, deserted 20th
century Earth city. The inhabitants, who scurry about hidden from the
Enterprise personnel, prove to be extraordinary "children" each over
several hundred years old. Three hundred years earlier, life-
prolongation experiments were conducted. After the entire planet had
been exposed to the "discovery", the adults died horrible deaths,
acquiring disfiguring scar tissue and going violently berserk. The
children's metabolisms were slowed so that they aged almost
imperceptibly. The children, upon reaching puberty, sicken and die
exactly like the adults of three centuries before. Kirk and company
are affected by the discovery, which is a communicable disease. McCoy
must find an antidote before they go mad and die from the illness.
Work is complicated by the children, especially by Miri, a young girl
who developes a crush on Captain Kirk. She engineers the abduction of
Yeoman Rand, but aids Kirk in his final attempt to win the children
over to his side.

airdate: 12/8/66

Kirk receives a message summoning the Enterprise to the home of
Dr.Thomas Leighton, a brilliant research scientist with whom Kirk
had survived an ordeal on colony Tarsus IV many years before. The
summons is a trick to lure the Captain, so that Leighton can enable
him to see and meet actor Anton Karidian. Leighton thinks that
Karidian is actually Kodos, the ex-governor of Tarsus IV, who
initiated the massacre that killed the doctor's entire family and
part of Kirk's as well. When Leighton is killed, Kirk investigates
and decides to transport the Karidian troupe on the Enterprise, so
that he can study the enigmatic actor. During the voyage, Lt.Kevin
Riley, another survivor of the massacre, is almost killed. A phaser
explodes, almost killing Kirk and Spock as well. In an effort to
discover the truth, Kirk romances Karidian's daughter, Lenore.

craft "Galileo" launched to investigate the phenomenon. When the
Galileo crash lands on planet Taurus II, with Spock, McCoy, and
Scotty aboard, Ferris demands that the Enterprise abandon the search
and continue its delivery of important medical supplies. Spock
fights Neanderthal-like creatures and the discontent of the shuttle's
other inhabitants. Although it appears that Spock's logical behavior
has caused the deaths of two crewmen, the Vulcan makes a last-minute
emotional decision that saves the Galileo's remaining crew members.

the pod, Kirk follows normal procedures and warns Finney to
evacuate. The pod is jettisoned, with Finney apparently inside. At
Starbase 12, Commodore L.T. Stone institutes a court-martial against
Kirk; the records show that Kirk jettisoned the pod before Finney had
a chance to escape. Lt. Areel Shaw, the prosecuting attorney and an
old girlfriend of Kirk's, retains the brilliant but eccentric lawyer
Samuel Cogley to defend the Captain. Although all the evidence is
against Kirk, Cogley (with the aid of Mr. Spock) is able to prove

had hoped to fake his own death, discrediting Captain Kirk.

16. THE MENAGERIE ............................. writer: Gene Roddenberry
director: Marc Daniels
filmed: October 1966
airdate: 11/17+24/66


A call supposedly sent by ex-Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike
diverts the Enterprise to Starbase Six. The message has actually been
sent by Mr. Spock. Pike, crippled and completely paralyzed in a
recent accident, is abducted and brought aboard the Enterprise by
Spock. Starbase Commodore Mendez and Captain Kirk overtake the
Enterprise and discover that Spock has locked the ship on course for
Talos IV. To visit this planet demands the death penalty, and Kirk is
forced to convene a court-martial against his Vulcan friend. The
entire ceremony, however, is a charade because Mendez is not really
on the Enterprise. His presence is an illusion, caused by the powerful
telepathic natives of planet Talos IV. The reason behind all these
puzzling occurrences is to get Pike to this planet, so that the
Talosian's mental abilities can enable the Captain to live a happy
life despite his deformities and paralysis. (Contains footage from
the first pilot episode, "The Cage").

happen, beginning with McCoy's sighting a giant white rabbit being
chased by an Alice-like little girl. Sulu is menaced by a Samurai
warrior; other crewmen are strafed by aircraft, chased by tigers,
and menaced by swordsmen. Kirk meets Finnegan, an old enemy from his
Academy days, followed by Ruth, an ex-lover. McCoy is "killed" by a
black knight on horseback. As the perils become progressively deadlier,
Spock and Kirk realize that their thoughts are being brought to life.
A kindly old man appears, identifying himself as the Caretaker, and
explains that the entire planet is an "amusement park" where advanced
alien technologies synthesize the "entertainment" from the minds of
the "vacationers". McCoy appears alive and well, escorted by two
Rigel cabaret girls. Kirk decides that, with the proper mental
precautions, this can be a good shore leave planet after all.

Upon arriving, Kirk finds that the base has been completely destroyed.
Suddenly, Kirk and his landing party are fired upon from from hidden
positions by unknown attackers. Lt. Harold, the lone survivor of the
Cestus personnel, testifies that his base was destroyed by a sudden
and merciless attack; he adds that his people did not have time to
request the Enterprise's presence. The call was a trap, sent by the
attackers. Kirk follows the enemy spaceship. When the two vessels
intrude upon the territory of the powerful Metrons, the Metrons decide
to settle the conflict by having Kirk fight the alien (Gorn) captain
in single combat. The Gorn is a huge, immensely strong reptile, as
resourceful as Kirk in the battle. Kirk knows that the loser's ship
will be destroyed, and this gives him the incentive to construct a
weapon to conquer the Gorn. He refuses to kill his opponent. Perhaps

meet as friends and equals.

director: Gerd Oswald
filmed: November 1966
airdate: 3/30/67

Throughout the entire universe there occurs a frightening moment of
"nonexistence," as though every natural law had ceased to function
for an instant. Commodore Barstow advises Kirk that the Enterprise
is orbiting the planet that is believed to be the center of the
disturbance. Beaming down, Kirk discovers an alien named Lazarus,
who tells an incredible story of an insane foe he has been chasing
through space. At first glance it is Lazarus himself who appears to
be insane, but at various moments he is also quiet and lucid. Lazarus
steals the Enterprise's crucial dilithium crystals, which he "needs"
for the battle against his unknown foe. Kirk beams down, and learns
that there are two Lazaruses. The madman, from our universe, is
obsessed with confronting and eliminating his antimatter-universe
double, even though both universes will cease to exist if both
Lazaruses ever do meet face to face. Kirk aids the sane Lazarus in
baiting the trap that strands both Lazaruses in an inescapable
corridor between both universes.

director: Michael O'Herlihy

UFO. Air Force pilot Capt. John Christopher (serial number 4857932)
photographs the Enterprise with his jet's wing cameras. When his jet
is accidentally destroyed by the starship's tractor beam, he is
transported aboard. This leaves Kirk and company with three large
problems: 1) retrieving the film, 2) getting the pilot back where he
belongs, and 3) returning to their own time without changing history.
After the film is obtained, Scotty duplicates the "slingshot effect"
that was responsible for their time-accident, and the Enterprise
returns home.

roam the planet serving the ruling mystical figure Landru. Outsiders
are "absorbed" and transformed into a part "of the body." Reger and
Marplon, two members of the anti-Landru underground, prevent Kirk
and Spock from being absorbed. After coping with McCoy, who has been
transformed, Kirk learns that Landru is a computer programmed by a
scientist thousands of years ago. Kirk destroys the computer,

The Enterprise pulls alongside a "Sleeper Ship" from the late
twentieth century. The surviving crew members are revived. The
leader, a magnetic individual named Khan, needs additional
attention in sick bay. Historian Marla McGivers has fallen for
Khan. "Khan" meanwhile, is identified as Eugenics War figure Khan
Noonian Singh, who is rated the most dangerous and dynamic of the
1990's artificially bred men. With Marla's aid Khan cuts off the air
to the bridge, takes the ship, and almost kills Kirk. Marla rescues
Kirk who unleashes anesthetic gas throughout the occupied sections
of the ship and recaptures the Enterprise. After defeating the villain,
Kirk gives Khan and his people, including Marla, the choice of facing
court-martial or colonizing a virgin, hostile planet. Khan chooses
to be a colonist, and Marla elects to go with him. Spock wonders what
will come from these "seeds" the Enterprise has planted. (The
character of Khan was reprised in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan).

25. THIS SIDE OF PARADISE ....................writer: D.C. Fontana
story by: N.Butler/D.Fontana
director: Ralph Senensky
filmed: January 1967
airdate: 3/2/67

The Enterprise arrives at planet Omicron Ceti III and expects to
find all the colonists there dead, because of a deadly concentration
of Berthold rays to which they have been exposed for three years.
When Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu and others beam down, the colony leader,
Elias Sandoval, appears and informs them that everyone on the planet
is well. Spock is reunited with Leila Kalomi, a young botanist with
whom he had worked six years before. She leads him to a clump of
plants that spray Spock with their spores. The Vulcan's emotions are
liberated by the spores; he is now free to express his love for Leila.
The Terrans exposed to the spores become placid. Plants are beamed up
to the Enterprise and before long everyone except Kirk is affected.
Kirk, fighting the effects of the spores, discovers that violent
emotional reactions are the antidote. He tricks Spock aboard, goads
him into a fight, and barely avoids being killed. Spock and Kirk
constuct an apparatus that restores the Enterprise crew and the
colonists to normal. Mr. Spock says farewell to Leila.

26. THE DEVIL IN THE DARK ..................... writer: Gene L. Coon
director: Joseph Pevney
filmed: January 1967
airdate: 3/9/67

The pergium miners on planet Janus IV are being hunted down and
killed by an unknown creature that can secrete powerful acids and
burrow through stone. Chief mining engineer Vanderberg summons the
Enterprise to assist in locating and killing the "monster." When the
creature steals a vital part of the PXK reactor, which regulates the
mining colony's life support functions, Spock realizes that they are
dealing with an intelligent creature. After Kirk wounds the Horta,
Spock persuades Kirk to try to communicate with the creature before
destroying it. Via a Vulcan Mind Meld, Spock discovers that the
creature is killing only to prevent the destruction of its thousands
of silicon eggs. McCoy heals the wounded Horta. When the miners learn
that their "monster" is only a defensive mother, and that they have
unwittingly killed many more of her children than she has of them,
Vanderberg and his people form a symbiotic relationship with the
Horta. The freshly hatched children dig the pergium while the miners
become rich. (One of McCoy's best lines debuts in the episode: "I'm
a doctor, not a bricklayer.")

27. ERRAND OF MERCY .............................. writer: Gene L. Coon
director: John Newland
filmed: January 1967
airdate: 3/23/67


As hostilities between the United Federation of Planets and the
Klingon Empire reach their peak, the Enterprise is dispatched to
the strategically located planet Organia. The Organian council, a
trio of smiling, elderly men, seem strangely unconcerned about the
prospect of war centering about their planet. Klingon Commander Kor,
with an occupational force, invades Organia. Kirk and Spock go
undercover, disguised as two traders, but are recognized by Kor, and
condemned to death. The Organians rescue them very easily. As the
moment of all-out war approaches, the Organians reveal themselves as
omnipotent creatures of pure energy. Using their mental abilities,
they neutralize all weapons. Kirk realizes with horror that a part
of him had been anticipating the hostilities; he is also relieved to
know that from now on the Organians will be watching to see that
things do not get out of hand. (This episode introduces the Klingons.)

2nd Organian ................................ Peter Brocco

28. THE CITY ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER ............ writer: Harlan Ellison
director: Joseph Pevney
filmed: February 1967
airdate: 4/6/67


While treating Sulu after an accident on the bridge, Dr. McCoy
accidentally injects himself with an overdose of cordrazine, an
experimental drug. In a delirious state, he transports down to the
planet below to which the Enterprise has come to investigate strange
"ripples in time." Beaming down with a landing party, Kirk and Spock
confront a "living machine" known as the Guardian of Forever. When
McCoy leaps through the machine's portal, he vanishes into Earth's
past and, because of something he does there to change history, the
Enterprise ceases to exist. The landing party, stranded, decides to
try to undo what McCoy has done. Kirk and Spock leap through the
device into the New York City of 1930. There, Kirk meets and falls for
Edith Keeler, a forward-thinking social worker. Spock, who manages to
use vintage 1930 equipment to construct a tricorder monitor device,
discovers that Edith has two possible futures. She can either begin a
pacifist movement that will enable Germany to win World War II, or
she can die in a traffic accident. Kirk realizes that in order for
history to restore itself and the Enterprise, Edith must die. He
commits the most difficult act of his life when he prevents McCoy from
saving Edith Keeler. Returning through space and time, Kirk leaves the
Guardian's planet immediately before any other tragedies can occur.
(The revised script, adapted for the series by Gene Roddenberry, won
the 1968 International Hugo Award, for Science Fiction.)

director: Herschel Daugherty
filmed: February 1967
airdate: 4/13/67

The planet Deneva, current home of Captain Kirk's brother and his
family, is in the path of an interplanetary epidemic of mass
insanity. Approaching the planet, the Enterprise intercepts a radio
message from a Denevan pilot who deliberately steers his ship into
the sun in a successful attempt to escape an unknown danger. Beaming
down with a landing party, Kirk discovers his brother (George Samuel
Kirk) dead, his sister-in-law (Aurelan) dying, and his nephew (Peter
Kirk) unconscious. Deneva has been invaded by batlike aliens that
intertwine with human nervous systems, manipulating their victims
with excruciating pain. McCoy, remembering the Denevan who flew into
the sun, begins to theorize about the creatures. Spock, infected by
the invaders, volunteers to be McCoy's guinea pig and is temporarily
blinded by exposure to intense light. McCoy discovers the light
intensity needed to kill the creatures, and a chain of trimagnesite
satellites is orbited to free the Denevans from their nightmare.
