* DyingRace: The Talosians.

to:

* DyingRace: The Talosians. Turns out being able to create illusions indistinguishable from real life but better makes you largely uninterested in real life.



* PilotEpisode

to:

* PilotEpisodePilotEpisode: A failed one, in fact, but it showed enough promise for the network to commission a second pilot.



* RubberForeheadAliens
* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands

to:

* RubberForeheadAliens
RubberForeheadAliens: The Talosians have entire rubber heads. They are more elaborate than later makeups in the series, and they also cast female actors but dubbed over male voices in an attempt to make them more alien.
* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemandsSurveillanceAsThePlotDemands: The Talosians seem perfectly capable of seeing everything that goes on in the cell as well as reading minds, but the Keeper doesn't see Pike waiting to ambush him.



* TelepathicSpacemen

to:

* TelepathicSpacemenTelepathicSpacemen: The Talosians are telepathic, and it's how they create their illusions.

The original PilotEpisode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. Written by GeneRoddenberry and produced in late 1964, it preceded the series itself by a good two years. While this pilot was not considered to have been a success at the time, the network executives did like it enough to finance a second pilot episode. And you all know how well that turned out.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: An in-universe example. The consoles on the ''Enterprise'' bridge are here fitted with what look like personal computer printers (which print out messages on paper), and the Yeoman is seen using a clipboard with paper sheets on it. The beam weapons are called lasers instead of the later phasers. And the weapon used in the attempt to blast the Talosian entrance is a bulky device transported from the ship instead of ship mounted weapons. By the time of the series proper, both would be replaced by more futuristic devices.

[[spoiler: Medical science is presumably more primitive than it's portrayed in TOS, as Pike doesn't even speculate about the possibility that Vina's disfigurements might be repairable with ''Trek''-era medicine.]]

** According to Nimoy, this was because he felt that Spock needed some warmth to balance out how Hunter played Pike.

** According to Nimoy, this was because he felt that Spock needed some warmth to balance out how Hunter played Pike. At this point, Spock was just supposed to be an alien, "probably half Martian". Vulcan heritage and stoicism weren't part of his character yet.

Menagerie". The original version, however, eventually made its broadcast premiere in 1988, as part of the TV special ''The Star Trek Saga: From One Generation To The Next'', which previewed the writers' strike-delayed second season of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. "The Cage" was also the last of the digitally remastered TOS episodes to air, debuting the week before ''Film/StarTrek'' opened in theaters in 2009.
