A flawed masterpiece for me which I would rate as an 8. Just an amazing first try. I think some of the editing could have been tighter. Although it is fun to see the full version and a unique experience to see for the first time so many years after TOS ended; I prefer the cut in "The Menagerie" for the most part. For example the fight scene in "The Cage" with the Kylar (sp?) is cut MUCH better in "The Menagerie" IMHO. It still drives me crazy in "The Cage" when Vina and Pike stop to have a conversation while going up the stairs after Pike knocks down the Kylar: RUN!!!!
