|This television special, produced in 1988, provides a brief history of Star Trek up through it's
20th Anniversary. Also included is the original Pilot episode "The Cage", presented in full color.
On 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.
Following the pilot episode, there is a behind-the-scenes look at "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and a look at the upcoming "Star Trek V" feature film.
