Event Synopsis: "The Menagerie" features footage from the original "Star Trek" pilot episode titled "The Cage." Leonard Nimoy as Spock is the only character that made it from the pilot to the "Star Trek" series – as well as Jeffrey Hunter in the role of the original commander of the starship Enterprise, Captain Christopher Pike.
The two-part episode features Spock and the familiar crew of the Enterprise including William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, DeForest Kelley as Dr. McCoy, James Doohan as Scott, and Nichelle Nichols as Uhura. In this episode, Spock is on trial for hijacking the Enterprise, telling a strange tale of former Enterprise Captain Pike's imprisonment on Talos IV 13 years earlier and the past crew's attempts to rescue him – shown in "flashback" footage taken from the original pilot episode.
An in-theatre exclusive greeting from creator Gene Roddenberry’s son, Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry is included, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how the episodes were digitally re-mastered from the original negatives – including the reinvention of the old TV show special effects using new CGI animation, and the orchestral re-recording of the show’s theme music.
