Unlocking the Cage


In February 1965, Gene Roddenberry tested the original Star Trek pilot, "The Cage," for NBC. The network ultimately would pass on "The Cage" and Captain Pike, but would order a new Pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before." The rest is history.

On this week's episode, Brittany takes the Captain's chair and asks the question, why didn't "The Cage" work? The crew take a deep dive into the episode as they attempt to unlock the mysteries and fumbles surrounding the failed episode.

Plus, we unveil our new partnership with Logical Coffee Roasters and welcome Matt Bailey to the show to talk all things coffee. The mailbag is also open and much more in "Unlocking the Cage."
