The Cage – Ft. Clay

TOS shot multiple pilots, and the first one featured a somewhat depressed captain named Christopher Pike! With an entirely different crew (except for an unusually emotional Mr. Spock), The Cage was Roddenberry’s first attempt at Star Trek. We all know that the series ultimately went in a different direction, but was The Cage any good in the first place? Clay joins me to discuss seductive lounging, sad captains, and casual misogyny!
