Re: Why Did Gene drop Christopher Pike?
Roddenberry wanted Hunter back. But he couldn't get him, cause he became a major movie star when PT.109 came a major hit movie.
Hunter? He wasn't in PT-109
Hunter became a star after working with John Wayne in The Searchers
in 1956. He'd later had his own tv show (Temple Houston) which I remember watching before Star Trek appeared. Yenny
may be confusing him with Cliff Robertson, Ty Hardin, or Robert Culp, who were in PT-109.
