** Media Note **– Download photos for CraveTV programming at BellMediaPR.ca.“The Cage” takes place 13 years prior to James T. Kirk taking command of the U.S.S. Enterprise and features Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike and Leonard Nimoy as Spock. Spock is the only character to appear in “The Cage” and the subsequent pilot. Nimoy played Spock throughout the series and in the first six Star Trek movies. Pike, Spock, and the rest of the crew land on planet Talos IV after receiving a distress signal. They find crash survivors from a missing scientific expedition. Among the survivors is the beautiful Vina (Susan Oliver). She distracts Pike, who is then captured by the Talosians – humanoids who live beneath the planet’s surface. Imprisoned, Pike discovers the distress call was faked to lure the U.S.S. Enterprise to the planet as part of a much darker plan.
