Stardate Unknown
This is the first voyage of the Starship Enterprise. Kirk's predecessor, Captain Christopher Pike, tries to rescue an earth crew that disappeared eighteen years earlier. But it's a trap! Pike is imprisoned in a zoo-like cage and studied by a mysterious higher life form.

The Cage is presented here in two versions. The first is a mixture of Color and Black & White footage, reconstructed from Gene Roddenberry's personal work print and color footage from The Menagerie. At the time of this reconstruction, the only known color print for The Cage was used in the actual editing process of The Menagerie, several minutes of the original color film were destroyed. However, in late 1988, Paramount was able to acquire the "lost" footage, and the result is the second version of The Cage, presented here in this splendid, restored color version.

The original Color/B&W version (labeled as Episode 99 for some unknown reason) includes the introduction and closing comments of creator Gene Roddenberry and has retained the original 2.0 mono soundtrack. The color version (mistakenly labeled as Episode 99) has been digitally enhanced and includes a 5.1 surround soundtrack.
