Did it ever matter?
Pike gets promoted to Fleet Captain but remains in command of the Enterprise in the episode Kirk comes on board. Kirk stays until Pike leaves. Problem solved.
or better yet just ignore that throwaway line of dialog lol
I don't know if this takes place after or before The Cage, but I would love to see the mission that caused Pike to question himself as captain.
It does not. That mission is in one of the Early Voyages comics.
should we consider all prior dialog to be just a collection of throw away lines?
sure I just don't think the writers should be limited by something that was said in 1966
We just need a throwaway line in Lower Decks about dramatizations of Kirk and Pike's mission. Problem solved.
That would actually work a treat. And it ties into Gene's TMP novelization, which implied TOS was a dramatisation.
should the writers be limited by dialog from the previous week's episode?
maybe those writers shouldn't be working on a show that has over half a century of back story?
Separate names with a comma.
