He sure seems to think that he is. A self proclaimed God protégé? That kind of says it all. I guess there is not much more to say about whether or not to watch The Cage, as the conversation has gotten lost on this triviality of the bridge. I will chime in and agree that the episode is most deserving of being watched on its own. We are so fortunate that the additional archival footage was recovered and talented people were able to remaster it. When I first saw it I had this uncanny feeling, the feeling of seeing an original Star Trek episode for the first time. It was quite a treat. I just wish there was more.
