Pilot Season: Star Trek – “The Cage” (w/ Leon Thomas)

Leon Thomas of Renegade Cut joins us ahead of the revival of his series Attack of the Trek to talk about the original Star Trek pilot “The Cage”. There’s no Kirk, no McCoy, no Chekov not even a Yeoman Rand in sight. But we do get a disturbingly emotive Spock, a Doctor with a medical bag filled with booze, a female first officer and a guy who just stands by the turbo lift for no reason.
