Re: Episode of the Week : The Cage

Two other key websites:

Birdofthegalaxy's Photostream ("The Cage" photographs)
Star Trek History ("The Cage" page)


Filmed: November 27 - December 18, 1964 (16 days)
Cost: $615,781.56 ($4,629,664.27 in 2013 dollars)

This was the most expensive episode of the original Star Trek. For the most part, I think it shows up on screen, and it looks terrific. I prefer the more colorful cinematography that would characterize the series going forward, but the grayer aesthetic of the first pilot has its virtues.
