Jeffrey Hunter, who played Pike in the original pilot episode, didn't want to come back.
My understanding is that Hunter's decision came from career advise he received from his wife, she wanted her husband to push for movies roles, and she didn't take seriously this little science fiction series out of a declining studio.
