|Contains two episodes from the classic sci-fi series. "Turnabout Intruder": The U.S.S. Enterprise receives a distress call from Camus II, where they find all but two inhabitants dead from radiation. One survivor, Janice Lester, is an old friend of Kirk's. But now she despises him and uses an alien technique to exchange bodies with him. When Kirk/Janice tries to explain things, Spock, Scotty and McCoy are accused of mutiny and Janice/Kirk calls for the death penalty! "Turnabout Intruder" was the original series' final episode. "The Cage" (Episode #99 & #1): The two versions of Star Trek's rarely aired pilot star Jeffrey Hunter as captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise. On an earlier voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Kirk's predecessor Captain Christopher Pike tries to rescue an Earth crew that disappeared eighteen years earlier. But it's a trap! Pike is imprisoned in a zoo-like cage and studied by a mysterious higher life-form. "The Cage" (Episode # 99) was reconstructed with black and white footage from Gene Roddenberry's work print and color footage from "The Menagerie" (Episode #16). "The Cage" (Episode #1) includes the long-lost color footage (believed to have been destroyed) from Gene Roddenberry's pilot episode.|
Editor's NoteThis DVD series features two re-mastered episodes of the ground-breaking television science-fiction series per disc. In Episode 79, "Turnabout Intruder" (the series' final episode), a scheming female scientist uses an ancient alien device to trade places with Kirk and take command of the Enterprise. Episode 99, "The Cage," Kirk's predecessor Captain Pike (Jeffrey Hunter) attempts to rescue a crew from earth, but is imprisoned by aliens. This episode was reconstructed using black-and-white footage from Gene Roddenberry's workprint and color footage from "The Menagerie" (Episode 16). As a bonus, the full color version of "The Cage" is also included, which restores the rediscovered color footage from the original pilot.
