Which was the better 'The Cage' which was to be the pilot but was rejected. This was where Captain Pike was the captain of Enterprise, goes to Talos IV, gets captured by the super-minded Talosians and caged. The Talosians having the plan to get humans to breed and populate the planet etc. The original story of The Cage is wrapped into the 'The Menagerie'. Spock kidnaps is former captain who has been severly crippled through heroics during a space accident, wants to take him to the now totally out of bounds planet Talos so he can live a happy-ever-after life etc. My preference is the Cage as it is as a story on its own, though the other has it merits.
