Behind the Scenes of Star Trek’s Lost Pilot Episode

If you’re not a Star Trek fan you may find this surprising, but the original pilot episode of Star Trek did not have Captain Kirk, Doctor McCoy, or Scotty, but rather followed a almost completely different crew captained by a man named Pike.  The only thing in common with the classic show we all know and love is the Enterprise and Mister Spock played by the brilliant Leonard Nimoy.

These episodes Stills and behind-the-scenes shots chronicle this lost pilot.
