On this mission, we explore Episode 12 of Star Trek: TOS, Part One, The Menagerie. The crew meet the Enterprise's former commander, Captain Pike at Starbase 11 only to find he has been severely crippled by radiation burns. Spock inexplicably kidnaps Pike and takes control of the Enterprise, locking it into a course for the quarantined planet Talos IV. Plus, as usual, we geek out about all things Star Trek!
