Rescue. I will bet the Talosians somehow fix him after already practicing on Vina. May as well. It's a good character. Though he will have to travel in the future because hes never mentioned again. Unless this is a new timeline than it wont matter. . Oh and it is indeed 7 years in the future. TPTB said so in an article o read last night. Even though the dialogue keeps making PIke shudder at any mention of 10 years like in episode 2....lol..
