Re: Episode of the Week : The Cage

I agree with what Harvey says above. The money is all on the screen and it looks magnificent. "The Cage" could very easily have been exhibited theatrically at the time. It's that well made.

It's clear that some of the concepts are still on the drawing board. But at other times it is oddly precient of later incarnations of the franchise. I do wonder if maybe "The Cage" represents the Star Trek concept at it's most raw and 'pure', entirely undiluted by the changes to the format that were sometimes forced on them as time progressed?
