"The Cage" is the first pilot episode of the Star Trek: The Original Series. It was completed in early 1965 (with a copyright date of 1964), but not broadcast on television in its complete form until late 1988. The episode was written by Gene Roddenberry and directed by Robert Butler. It was rejected by NBC in February 1965, and the network ordered another pilot episode, which became "Where No Man Has Gone Before". Much original footage from "The Cage" was later incorporated into the first season two-parter, "The Menagerie".

Planet of Origin: Talos III (Note: This might be an hommage or a reference to the 1964 Star Trek pilot episode "The Cage", which takes place on Talos IV)Talosians are a sexuate humanoid species who are believed to have developed interstellar space travel as of the 21st century. At least some of them possess shapeshifting abilities to some extent, being able to switch between two forms, a social one, which looks much like a regular human with green hair, and a hunting form.
