The Cage is the first pilot episode of the Star Trek. It was finished in mid 1965 (with a copyright date of 1964); yet not show on TV in its finished structure until late 1988. The episode was composed by Gene Roddenberry and the network requested another pilot episode, which got to be Where No Man Has Gone Before (Ayers, 2006). NBC apparently called the pilot excessively cerebral, excessively educated, and too abate with not enough activity. As opposed to dismissing the series out and out, however, the network commissioned in a bizarre, and at the time exceptional, move a second pilot.
