Crazy that this episode was never seen outside of the Menagerie clips until 1988. It's a rough episode to watch if you are sensitive to change. Jeff Hunter is a terrific Pike and the story is bittersweet knowing what will happen to the character. Part of me hopes Anson Mount's Pike will find a way to avoid it in Strange New Worlds.
